Tom Judson (b. (1960-11-14)November 14, 1960) is an American musical theatre actor and composer, particularly for off-Broadway and Broadway plays, and a retired pornographic film actor. His credits include writing music for the films Metropolitan,[1] Good Money and The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love, as well as performing on Broadway and in national stage tours of the musicals 42nd Street and Cabaret.

Well into his forties, and with an established career in mainstream show business, he embarked on a gay pornographic career under the stage name of Gus Mattox. He retired from the pornography industry in 2006 after only two years to concentrate on his career as an actor and musician.

As Mattox, he received the 2006 GayVN Awards Performer of the Year Award for his work in the industry.[2]

Judson wrote and performed his autobiographical one-man show Canned Ham from 2009-2011. Much of the material from that show was collected into his book of essays "Laid Bare." He is currently performing as a cabaret artist at venues around the US.

Since 2011 Tom has served as musical director and Second Banana for Charles Busch's cabaret act.

His latest madcap venture is a line of graphic T-shirts featuring political protest imagery and various entertainment references. They're available on his Etsy shop.
