In addition to his work in both all-sex and scripted adult film, Cox appeared as himself in the 1999 industry tell-all documentary Sex: The Annabel Chong Story. In it, Cox criticizes fellow actor Chong's world record of having onscreen sex 251 times with 70 men in 10 hours as "(giving) porn a bad name."
Cox's professional name was a play on actor Michael J. Fox, the mainstream Canadian-American actor whose boyish, preppy persona he shared.
