[ # ] Opie Cunningham considered doing porn!
January 23rd, 2015 under Conan O'Brien


Ron Howard spent much of his developing years as an actor, but when he entered his 20’s he wanted to be a director of Independent films. Back in the late ’70s, it was not like it is today in Hollywood and making an Indie film was not as easy to do as it is now. So Richie Cunningham told Conan O’Brien that it dawned on him that Deep Throat cost nothing to make and yet it made deep pockets at the box office; so why doesn’t he do a movie like that to earn the green to make the movies he really wanted to do. Thankfully, that idea only lasted for a few seconds because could you imagine the squeakiest clean actor of the ’60s and ’70s doing a porno? Oh wait, I found my thrills!
Actually, let’s look at the titles of the movies he directed and see which ones could also be considered names for films in Adult Entertainment also. There’s Night Shirt, Splash, Cocoon, Gung Ho, Willow, Backdraft, Far and Away, Apollo 13, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, The Dilemma and Rush. So in a way, it was like he did go into porn without going into it.
