Interview: Garrett Clayton from King Cobra


Sex, scandals, and murder. This story is fairly well-known in the gay community, but especially notorious in the porn industry. King Cobra follows the rise of star Sean Paul Lockhart, better known by his porn name Brent Corrigan. This film is sexy, suspenseful and stylistically tantalizing. The film has some recognizable names like James Franco, Christian Slater, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, but the star of the film will sound familiar to you if you are a fan of Disney Channel films. Film newcomer Garrett Clayton steals the spotlight of the film, much like his character did for the gay porn industry. Clayton has been on several TV shows and Disney Channel films, and will be in the upcoming Hairspray Live musical alongside Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Chenoweth, and Ariana Grande.

I sit down with the star of King Cobra, Garrett Clayton, to discuss the film, working alongside such iconic actors, future projects and so much more. Check out my (admittedly nervous) interview with Clayton below, who I may or may not have a crush on after seeing his performance in King Cobra.




Jon would say that as a writer, he is a self-proclaimed film snob and a pop culture junkie. Always gives his honest, critical, and maybe a little bit snarky opinion on everything. He's very detail oriented and loves anything involving creativity and innovation. You're better off asking him who his favorite director is rather than his favorite film. So beware and get ready to be entertained. You can contact him at or follow him on twitter @DystopianHero. (Also, he doesn't always refer to himself in the third person, but sometimes he just has to).
