Acting

In 1995, MTV hired Rex to work as a VJ and kept him on the air for over two years.[3] After being let go by MTV during an update to its VJ line-up, and after his adult video work became more widely known, his notability and popularity increased.

He was once featured on an episode of MTV Cribs.

Rex began to pursue mainstream acting and in 1999 was cast in the television show Jack & Jill, which ran for two seasons. He appeared as "Eli" in the TV show Felicity and television guest appearances followed including Baywatch, Everwood, and Summerland. In 2002, the pilot for the show What I Like About You was picked up by The WB, which now has become The CW. Rex starred in the first season. He later appeared on the Lifetime show, Monarch Cove which ran for 11 episodes in 2006. He also co-produced a pilot for a show called Rex, with supporting roles performed by Paris Hilton, Lance Bass and Jaime Pressley.

Rex has appeared in The Forsaken, Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4 and The Karate Dog. He also starred in National Lampoon's Pledge This! with Paris Hilton.

Music

Rex entered the music industry as a rap artist after becoming friends with Mickey Avalon. Rex adopted the stage name "Dirt Nasty" and formed the rap group, Dyslexic Speedreaders, along with Mickey Avalon, Andre Legacy, and Beardo. Rex often toured with the group and collaborated to create the Shoot To Kill mixtape. The group ended abruptly, as Mickey Avalon left due to personal problems involving Rex and Andre Legacy. Rex still remains close to Andre Legacy and Beardo. He also collaborates with other artists such as Andy Milonakis and Rich Hil. In 2007, he released his self titled debut album. Rex appeared on Paris Hilton's My New BFF in his "Dirt Nasty" persona and in Kesha's video for her song "Tik Tok". He appeared in the LMFAO music video for "Yes" and "Sexy and I Know It" . He rapped at the conclusion of Charlie Sheen's "Torpedo of Truth" show in Detroit but did not perform at the show's second presentation in Chicago the next day.[4]

In 2011, Rex performed at The Piano Room, a Kings Cross nightclub in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Rex was involved in a minor incident at the nightclub, jointly owned by John Ibrahim and investors, including Kyle Sandilands, where a customer allegedly took a microphone from Rex and assaulted him. It was alleged that Rex, in self-defense, punched the man, and was defended by associates of the Bra Boys.[5] Rex was also a co-owner of the nyc nightclub Plumm with partners Noel Ashman Samantha Ronson and Chris Noth. Plumm is now closed.[citation needed] In November of 2011 Rex performed as Dirt Nasty with KC rapper Mac Lethal. Mac Lethal is known for being one of if not the fastest rapper currently.
