Award season is here--in Hollywood and gay porn. While watching the same celebrities accepting trophies over and over can grow tiresome, it's also a great time to snag some attention. And superstar Mark Dalton, who hasn't been heard from since his infamous run-ins with the law in 2009 and a brief bodybuilding career shortly after, showed up at the Cybersocket Awards in West Hollywood this week to spotlight his return to the industry. (No, GayDemon did not win. Props to Dewitt and the folks at Manhunt Daily, who took the Best Porn Review Site prize.) Dalton's longtime manager David Forest tells us that this is the first step in yet another comeback for the beefy Texan.
Now 35, Dalton did a red-carpet interview with Sister Roma (pictured above) and posed for these exclusive pics taken by veteran photographer Mocha. The five-year hiatus (with a couple of years spent in jail) has done Dalton good, and he says that he's refreshed and ready to do live performances, private meetings and even some solo scenes. Mark got his start in 2002 as a dancer and was known for his solo work in movies like Falcon's Super Soaked, Mark Meets Zeb: The Texas Two-Step (jerking next to Zeb Atlas) and Jet Set Men's Getting Levi's Johnson. The notoriously straight muscle stud (he's divorced and has an eight-year-old daughter) is the first exclusive for Forest's new MaleAdultStars.com site, which is sponsoring Dalton's "The Xtreme Tour 2015" kicking off in mid-February. Exact dates and venues will be announced soon. Who knows? Maybe the 10th time's the charm!?
