Back in 2009, Nathaniel Marshall worked his way into the Top 36 contestants of American Idol with his self-described "country R&B" sound before getting unceremoniously booted off the show. But before that, Simon Cowell—who had no love for the lad—told Marshall, "You're way too loud with your clothing."

Well, It seems Marshall has finally taken that advice to heart, because according to TMZ and Queerty, he's allegedly stripped down to nothing to star in a just-released gay porn.

Going by the nom de porn Jadyn Daniels, Marshall is following the trail blazed by previous Idol singer-turned-porn actress Olivia Mojica with a starring role in the long-awaited sequel to Men Caught on Video.

Although Marshall's Twitter has been silent since 2011, his last tweet might shed some light on why he turned to adult films in lieu of his floundering singing career. "Broke but not defeated," he wrote. "I'm just working my ass off!"

From what we can tell, one of the participants in Men Caught on Video 2 does appear to be Marshall... or at least someone eerily similar. Both Marshall and "Jadyn Daniels" share the exact same bird, face and vine tattoos on their necks and both arms. And it seems rather unlikely an aspiring adult actor would go to all the trouble to imitate the ink of a reality star no one remembers. 

Watch Marshall's original Idol interview below and if you want to see the NSFW things he's doing to work his way to the top, you'll have to search for that yourself.
