Fashion designer Marc Jacobs - who has an eponymous label based in New York and designs the Louis Vuitton brand in Paris - is about to make his feature film debut.

Jacobs is in the new dramatic thriller "Disconnect," which hits the big screen April 12th. The highly-influential designer plays harvey, a porn baron.

The movie is about family secrets spilling out online and stars Jason Bateman, Paula Patton and Alexander Skarsgard.

Did I mention Jacobs plays a porn baron? I did? Oh well, it really can't be said enough. You should know that Jacob's porn baron is one of those porn barons with a heart of gold.

Glamorous? I don't think so. Jacobs told Entertainment Weekly that his scene was filmed between 4 and 9 a.m. in frezzing weather in - of all places - Yonkers.

In the clip below Jacobs is the one who says, "Trust me. No one else" around 2:12.

And so it begins.....
