Cummings at the 2000 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo
March 13, 1940 |
Saratoga Springs, New York, U.S.
Cummings' background is unusual for a typical porn actor: he has both a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and a Masters Degree in Public Administration; in addition, he spent over 25 years as an officer in the United States Army, retiring in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He was married for 22 years and has two children and four grandchildren.
He was almost 55 years old before he launched his acting career and is now regarded as a major adult porn star with well over 500 adult films and a reputation for sexual stamina. Cummings claims that he only uses viagra when doing back-to-back sex scenes or when working with very demanding directors. He was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2007 and the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2011.
