John recently shared with me that he's just been cast in a movie that's going to start filming in July 2014. Below is a brief glimpse of our conversation.
So, John, I understand you were cast for a movie. Can you tell me a little bit about it?
A Sense of Purpose: Fighting for Our Lives
When four veterans, two men, Shawn Wallace and Alexander Blakely, and two women, Sabrina Smith and Nancy Dawson, who served in Iraq or Afghanistan during wartime return home they all suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Turning to drugs and alcohol and struggling with depression they find that an unconventional form of therapy, Mixed Martial Arts. It helps them heal, assimilate back into society and find peace. I play the character role of Sgt. Jason Garrett who served in Iraq with Lt. Alexander Blakely (Clinton Bullock). Together we open an MMA school together in Philadelphia to serve veterans. The school is Elite Warriors MMA & Boxing School.* *Not a real school, just for the movie*
Wow, that sounds intense. How did the opportunity come up?
I was selected by producer Jillian Bullock based on my look and good attitude.
Congratulations John, that's great! Have you ever done any acting before?
Yes, I have a trailer coming out soon as a very well-known character in the romance world and this whole thing is associated with Apple. Being billed in romance as ‘The Most Tattooed Male Romance Cover Model in The World’ I feel helped me to get selected for this honor. I can’t speak anymore on this as I have been sworn to keep it quiet until it is released by the producers and author. I have been coached in acting over the years by a few individuals who choose to remain anonymous.
Awesome! You're secret's safe with me... sort of. *Grins* So, let's talk about your modeling career. How did you get into nude modeling?
As a model for many years and after several people encouraged me to do so, I decided to take my modeling to a new level. In June of this year I was nominated for Playgirl’s Hunk of The Month. It was an honor just being nominated as so many male models apply. I have received mails from people all over the world globally supporting me as an adult model.

Does walking around naked in front of a camera crew make you nervous?
Not at all, I am very comfortable with my body so it’s just another day for John Quinlan.
WARNING STEAMY PICTURES AHEAD!!
Is there a big difference for you between modeling nude and modeling with clothing on?
I can only answer this question from my own point of view and past experience that to me there is no difference. I think one has to have great self-confidence to go all the way and be very comfortable in your own skin. It is not for every model out there trust me J
Do you have a preference?
To be honest I don’t think I have one real preference when it comes to different modeling genres. I enjoy them all as each one challenges me in their own way. To answer your question if I had to pick one that might be a bit of a cut above the rest I might say the classic Calvin Klein suit. Nothing says classy like a well-dressed business man.
I couldn't agree more. Although low hung jeans and tight shirts work for me too! Yum! Can you tell me about one of your more grueling shoots?
I can’t narrow it down to just one but any of the shoots that I have done on beaches or out in the desert when the weather tops 100 degrees is a real challenge. To hold poses for hours in the hot sun with humidity added in really makes for a grueling shoot but in the end when the photos come back successfully and both parties are pleased it is all worth it.
Thanks for coming to play with me today John! I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming movie and feel free to come back anytime. The ladies really love you! Yeah, yeah, ok I love you too!
