Born on September 22, 1972, Matthew Rush is one of the most recognized and popular faces in gay porn. The muscle-packed biracial stud got his start in 2001 and quickly rose to superstar status. In 2002 Matthew was awarded Best Newcomer at the GayVN Awards; his trophy shelf has grown fuller with Grabby Awards for Best Performer and Best Duo (2003), a Grabby Award for Hottest Ass (2005), and a Grabby Award for Best Versatile Performer (2010). He also became a member of the Grabby Awards Wall of Fame in 2006.
Matthew is one of the few performers ever to have signed a lifetime exclusive contract with Falcon Entertainment, for which he starred in films like Riding Hard, The Recruits, Bootstrap, and Dare. Matthew also directed his first feature for Falcon Studios, Rush and Release. On screen Matthew is known mainly as a top, although he has bottomed for a handful of performers including Ethan Kage, Erik Rhodes and Rob Romoni. Unlike most porn stars Matthew has achieved success as a mainstream actor. He has appeared in the TV detective film Third Man Out alongside Chad Allen and in the motion picture Another Gay Movie. Matthew has also enjoyed a lot of success in theater, acting in the traveling stage production of Making Porn as well as Naked Men, Psycho Beach Party and CellbloQ.
Aside from performing, Matthew is a bodybuilder and professional trainer under his real name, Gregory Grove. He has competed at the Gay Games in Sydney, Australia, and hopes to one day open a gym. Matthew also works as head of FabScout Live, a live entertainment division of gay adult agency FabScout.
In January of 2009 Matthew made industry headlines when he announced he would be parting ways with Falcon Studios. Matthew asked to be let out of his Lifetime Exclusive contract in order to pursue other interests within the industry. His final performance for Falcon was a live webcam show on January 11, 2009 and his first post-Falcon porn shoot was with Pantheon Productions in San Francisco on January 23, 2009, for an incredible film called Brief Encounters.
