Gay Porn Star Turned Broadway Actor Ryan Idol Gets Jailtime For Toilet Tank Attack
Ryan Idol
Ryan Idol, who appeared in 'The Ritz,' is heading to jail.

Gay porn star (and onetime Broadway actor) Ryan Idol has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for attempted murder, following his conviction last year, reports The Sacramento Bee.

A Sacramento judge handed down the prison sentence on September 26, more than a year after Idol’s conviction. The sentencing was delayed to make way for a motion for a new trial, which was rejected.

On September 5, 2009, Idol (whose given name is Marc Anthony Donais) was accused of smashing his girlfriend over the head with a toilet tank lid. During his trial testimony, Donais said he was acting out of self-defense. According to The Bee, Donais’ ex-girlfriend testified that she severed ties with Donais upon discovering him having sex with his male lover. He later reportedly entered her apartment and said, “I came over here to kill you.” 

Donais made his first and only Broadway appearance using his Idol moniker in Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of The Ritz in 2007. Prior to his Broadway debut, Donais was one of the most popular gay porn stars of the 1990s. He also once appeared as a centerfold in Playgirl magazine.
