Alek Skarlatos, one of the three American heroes who helped thwart a terror attack on a train in France in August, will appear in a film with an ex-porn star, TMZ reported Monday.

Skarlatos, 23, was asked to make a cameo in the military comedy "Range 15" which features porn veteran Ron Jeremy, William Shatner and Danny Trejo. It is due for a July release.

Skarlatos, who recently appeared on reality hit "Dancing With the Stars," was so new to Hollywood that he did not know who Jeremy was, the report said.

Skarlatos won't have too many lines to remember: He will be playing himself in a quick guest star role.

On August 21, Skarlatos and two friends, Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler, leapt into action and stopped heavily armed Ayoub El Khazzani from completing an attack on a Paris-bound train.

The three have since been hailed as heroes both in the United States and in France, where they were awarded the Legion of Honor, the country's highest decoration.
