Matthew Rush (born Gregory Grove on September 22, 1972) is a bi-racial American gay pornographic film actor, magazine model, and (under his real name) a bodybuilder and personal trainer. He has competed at the Gay Games in Amsterdam and Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Rush was under a lifetime exclusive pornographic career contract with Falcon Studios[3] that ended in 2009[4] in order to pursue other projects in the pornographic industry.[5] His first post-Falcon project was a pornographic video and photo shoot with photographer Jon Royce on January 22, 2009.[6]

Matthew Rush is a powerful top in much of his film roles, but can also perform as a vocal bottom. His first post-Falcon porn shoot was with Pantheon Productions in San Francisco on January 23, 2009. In the film, titled Brief Encounters (Real Men, Vol. 17), Rush played a nasty son that "flip-flopped" with hairy daddy Tim Kelly.[7] Rush's career was revitalized when he joined the website MenOver30.com in 2009. His easy going attitude and versatility has resulted with him receiving the 2010 Grabby Award and GayVN Award in the category "Best Versatile Performer".

Rush has appeared in the TV detective film Third Man Out, starring Chad Allen, and in the motion picture Another Gay Movie.[8] From 2002 to 2005, he acted in a traveling stage production of Ronnie Larsen's, Making Porn.

His announced retirement from the pornographic industry announced in October 2011 was short lived[9] when he returned to making pornographic films in January 2012.[10]
