A former US daytime soap star has signed on to become the face and body of former Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss' all-male stud farm in the Nevada desert. Fleiss plans to open her male brothel in Pahrump, near Las Vegas next year (07) and she already has her first stud in the shape of former ANOTHER WORLD star LES BRANDT. Brandt, who has also appeared in CSI: MIAMI and NYPD Blue, has opted to give up acting to ply his trade as a hooker for lusty women - for $250 (GBP143) per hour. He says, "I love to love women, I always have. I've loved women for free so far, so why not get paid to do something that I really enjoy and am good at." Fleiss picked Brandt to front her first male brothel after mulling over 3,000 possible hunks. The former actor admits he had to get the OK from his girlfriend before accepting Fleiss' offer to be her number one hunk. He adds, "We sat down and talked about it, and she said it wouldn't be a problem as long as I took the proper precautions. She knows it's only a job."
