Kilmer's Interest In Porn Role

Hollywood actor VAL KILMER wanted to play real-life porn star JOHN HOLMES in WONDERLAND because of his tragic descent into drug addiction and involvement with criminals.

THE DOORS star was so interested in the contradiction and inner-battles Holmes faced, he finally agreed to headline the movie.

Kilmer says, "John Holmes was one of the first people to realise (ANDY) WARHOL's prophecy about 15 minutes of fame.

"He was treated like a freak. But he found this niche in pornography, even though he didn't like it or relate to it.

"And at any moment, he could have gotten in the car with the girl and just driven away from it all.

"He was quite a fine carpenter, an able man, but he was smoking an ounce of cocaine a day, a bag of dope, a bottle of booze.

"That'll lead to some bad calls."
