Jim Walker was a mild-mannered journalist for over 20 years. With two regional Emmy’s under his belt and jobs at Fox, NBC and CBS, you’d think he was a man who had it all.

But you’d be mistaken. And after 23 years, Walker decided to make a radical transformation, reemerging as Dallas Steele – a gay porn star.

In an interview, he said: “I’m much more successful in every measure than I ever was before.

“I left the [news] business in 2013 after my boss in Southwest Florida told me that research had shown ‘people here just don’t like you’.

“Add to that, the immense pressure of daily ratings where your job is virtually on the line every single day.

While Jim is happier than ever before, his change in direction has attracted his fair share of naysayers. But he’s not prepared to let a little ageism get him down: “They’ve obviously decided at some point that there are limitations about who you can be and what you can do once you hit 40,” he told reporters.

“I’m sorry if the haters have decided that gays over 40 are supposed to put on the board shorts, move to the suburbs and settle down to bridge parties once per week. I don’t plan to ever go quietly into the night.”
