Ronald Jeremy Hyatt (March 12, 1953 from Bayside, Queens). Known to most of the world as Ron Jeremy, an American porn film actor. Ron has been nicknamed "The Hedgehog" and was ranked by Adult Video News as number one pornstar of all time in their "100 Top Porn Stars of All Time" list. Jeremy has also appeared in non-pornographic films, mainstream television shows and has been a top selling author. His footprints will be felt within the porn industry and outside of adult films for many decades to come.

Ron Jeremy has starred in thousands of adult movies and is perhaps best known for his big dick. His large penis measures at more than 9.75 inches in length and is also unusually thick! At one time, Ron Jeremy gained notoriety for being capable of autofellatio (sucking his own cock) which he first demonstrated on-screen in the film: Inside Seka, though he stated in a 2003 interview that due to his weight gain the best he can do nowadays is kiss the tip! It is that combination of exceptional sexual prowess and comedic timing which have allowed Ron Jeremy to become not only admired by porn fans but beloved by them as well.

Born to an upper middle-class Jewish family in Bayside Queens, Ronald Jeremy's father, Arnold, was a physicist and his mother a book editor who served in the O.S.S. during World War II as she spoke fluent German and French. He had an uncle who was allegedly a low level gangster with some ties to Bugsy Siegel.

Ron Jeremy attended Cardozo High School in Bayside, Queens and was a 1971 classmate of former United States CIA director George Tenet. Jeremy went on to earn a bachelor's degree in education and theatre, and a master's degree in special education from Queens College in New York. While at Queens College, Jeremy was a member of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. He also taught special-education classes in the New York City area and was a substitute teacher for mainstream classes as well.

Jeremy left the teaching profession but was always glad to have a solid career in teaching to fall back on and he always said that teaching held a special place in his heart because of the positive impact it had on so many people. He wanted to pursue an acting career in New York City and said he learned what it was like to make no money as an actor who "starved Off-Broadway".

His girlfriend at that time submitted photos of Ron to Playgirl magazine and when they expressed interest in doing a pictorial of him, to make ends meet, Ron Jeremy posed for Playgirl magazine and his appearances lead to the start of a true hall of fame porn career in the adult film industry that has spanned more than twenty years.

His first appearance in a porn film was in a low budget movie named Snap which was later renamed COD, by Chuck Vincent. He started using his first and middle name professionally in the adult industry, after his grandmother Rose was being bothered by people calling her thinking they would be able to contact him. "His grandma Rose listed at that time as R. Hyatt in the phone book was pestered at all hours by prospective suitors who'd seen Ron Jeremy in Playgirl. She had to move out of her apartment for a month and his father told him "If you want to get into this naked, crazy business, so be it" but he was forbidden from using his family name in it ever again.

Jeremy had his nickname "The Hedgehog" bestowed upon him by Bill Margold after an incident on the set of the porn movie Olympic Fever, shot in 1979. Jeremy had flown in from New York to shoot the movie, and had dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, expecting warm weather. During his motorcycle ride to the set, located near Lake Arrowhead in the California Mountains, the weather had deteriorated to blizzard conditions, which chilled him almost to the point of hypothermia. Upon arriving at the set, Jeremy was immediately whisked away to warm up in a hot shower. When he had finished, his skin had taken on a pink hue from the temperature extremes, and the hairs on his body were standing on end. Margold's comment upon seeing Jeremy after the shower was, "You are a hedgehog, my friend a walking, talking hedgehog." Contrary to popular belief, the nickname had nothing to do with Jeremy's weight gain, as he was quite physically fit at the time, and it also had nothing to do with the popular Sonic videogame character.

Jeremy is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films" his entry on the Internet Adult Film Database lists more than 1,900 films in which he has performed, and an additional 275 films which he directed. By way of comparison, John Holmes is credited with being in thousands of porn films but many are compilations re-using the same scene in hundreds of films while Ron Jeremy is in thousands of original porn scenes. Ron Jeremy has been recognized for his contributions to the adult industry by both AVN and XRCO. Additionally, Jeremy's work earned him a spot on the Adult Star Path of Fame located in Edison, New Jersey.

Since 2000 Ron Jeremy saw a resurgence in his popularity as his work in mainstream television and movies combined with a transition from active pornstar to industry elder spokesman rejuvenated his career. Outside the adult film industry, Jeremy has worked as a "special consultant" for the 1986 film 9? Weeks. He also worked as a consultant on the 1997 Academy Award winning film Boogie Nights which chronicled the emergence of the fictional porn star Dirk Diggler (Mark Wahlberg, loosely based on the life of porn star John Holmes) and the film The Chase, in which he has a small cameo as a news cameraman. He also appeared in the 1999 film The Boondock Saints and played a bartender in 2002's Spun. He was an extra in Ghostbusters, played a male strip-club announcer in Detroit Rock City, and had a cameo in the film Killing Zoe and in the porn spoof, Orgazmo as well as a long list of "B" films.

In 2003, Jeremy appeared as himself in, and lent his name to, the comedy film Being Ron Jeremy, a parody of Being John Malkovich. He was also the subject of a feature-length biographical documentary, Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy, released in 2001 and widely distributed on DVD by mainstream retailers. Jeremy is a frequent interviewee in documentaries about the porn industry, or related subjects such as Fuck: A Fuckumentary. In 2007, he appeared in the comedy film Finishing the Game as himself.

Jeremy appeared in the second season of The Surreal Life and the ninth season The Surreal Life: Fame Games, in which he finished second to Traci Bingham on the season finale. Jeremy also appeared in a segment on Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show. He has also made appearances on Penn and Teller's Bullshit in episodes regarding penis enlargement and circumcision. In 2005, he appeared on the UK reality TV show, The Farm.

Jeremy appeared in the Robot Chicken episode, "A Piece of the Action", which was voiced by Michael Benyaer. In this episode, he and several others parody The Surreal Life and Lord of the Rings. The segment lampoons his penis size by having his character unseat a knight on horseback using nothing but his erect dick as a jousting lance. Jeremy appeared as himself in the 2001 Family Guy episode "Brian Does Hollywood", in which he is a presenter at the "Woody Awards" for which Brian Griffin is a nominee.

Comedian Kathy Griffin recently went on a date with him in the third season of her reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. In 2003, Jeremy appeared on The Frank Skinner Show on British TV, and performed a duet ("I Got You Babe") with former Cabinet minister Mo Mowlam.

Jeremy has appeared in fifteen music videos, more than any other pornographic actor. He appeared in videos by Sublime, Mercury Rev, Moby, Kid Rock, Everclear, Sam Kinison, Guns N' Roses, Mad Yellow Sun, Los Umbrellos, Rottweiler Hundar (Icelandic), the Radioactive Chickenheads, A Day To Remember and Necro. In addition, he released a rap single called "Freak Of The Week" which stayed on the Billboard charts for twenty-seven weeks; a music video for this was also produced.

Ron Jeremy was featured as a playable character in the Celebrity Deathmatch video game; one of his famous fighting moves is an offscreen suggestion that he unzips his pants and proceeds to repeatedly beat Johnny Chavez across the face with his penis.He also appears as a genie in the game Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, in which he gives tips and advice to the main character.

As a further indication of his crossover celebrity status and willingness to do volunteer charity work, Ron Jeremy has posed in an advertisement for PETA to raise awareness for overpopulation. In the poster, he lies partially nude on a bed, a pair of handcuffs on his wrists. Poking fun at his notoriety, the title of the advertisement exclaims, "Too much sex can be a bad thing. Always spay and neuter!"

In 2007 Ron Jeremy released his memoir, titled Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz. The book was published by Harper Collins and was widely successful both critically and commercially. The book also included a nationwide book tour where Ron was frequently mobbed by crowds of adoring porn fans!

In 2005, Jeremy made headlines when he was invited to address the Oxford Union. According to the Union's librarian, Vladimir Bermant, "Ron is the biggest and apparently the best in the business, so I'm sure he'll have some fascinating stories to tell." His speech defending pornography was well-received. In 2006, Jeremy began a series of debates on pornography opposing Pastor Craig Gross, founder of anti-pornography website XXXchurch.com, visiting various US and Canada college campuses as part of the "Porn Debate Tour" aimed at raising student awareness of the rights of free speech and expression.

When one looks at the current porn industry or the lengthy history of porn all the way back to the 1970s, Ron Jeremy's fingerprints and footprints can be seen throughout it. From the way adult movies are made, to the people who have become stars? in almost every case, not only has Ron Jeremy helped them with their careers? he has also had a lot of sex with them!
