Could Don Johnson be the next big comeback? I'm sure playing Kristen Bell's dad in When in Rome, or Jason Sudeikis' dad in A Good Old Fashioned Orgy won't do it, but maybe playing a porn director would? I mean, it worked for Burt Reynolds.

The Hollywood Reporter posts that Johnson will play a mustachioed director of the XXX films in Adam Sandler's Born to Be a Star. If you remember, the film focuses on a nerd who discovers that his parents were famous porn stars in the '70s, so he sets out to follow their path. But where Reynolds gave us retro porn, Johnson will delight in this century, playing "a down-on-his-luck director" who gives the nerd a shot.

Honestly, I'd pay just to see that, but it helps that Stephen Dorff will play a porn star named Dick Shadow (cue Dirk Diggler), and Edward Herrmann, of all people, also has a role. Am I wrong to think that this might take us back to a better day of Sandler projects? Whatever the case, I'm going to go fire up YouTube, listen to "Heartbeat," and remember the days of rocking out to Don with my Pocket Rockers.

Weigh in: Don Johnson, mustached man of porn ... Yay or Nay?
