Are there any pornstars past or present that were good enough actors to be mainstream? I remember seeing Jamie Gillis in Nighthawks with Stallone, Billy Dee Williams and Rutger Hauer, Sharon Mitchell in a couple of movies and Marilyn Chambers in Rabid.
I saw some of Traci's movies and in my honest opinion if she did not have the infamy of her underage porn career I don't think she really had the acting chops to be a mainstream legit actress in Hollywood.

Saw Traci recently in a darkly amusing (and really f'ed up) indie horror film called "Excision." I absolutely do think she has the chops at this point.
Sasha Grey is also not bad.

I only saw Sasha Grey in The Girlfriend Experience and I didn't think she was very good. But I think that was her first mainstream non porno movie.
Robert Kerman aka R. Bolla was in some mainstream stuff. I mostly remember him from Cannibal Holocaust. He was a pretty good actor.
I thought Aunt Peg Juliette Anderson was a pretty good actress and Kay Parker. Lately there aren't a lot of movies that have any kind of story so it is hard to tell. John Leslie was a pretty good actor and also Jerry Butler.
