John Leslie Nuzzo, born January 25, 1945 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a prolific porn actor who went on to have a long-running career as a producer and director of adult movies. Usually credited under the name John Leslie, he has also worked under a variety of pseudonyms, including Louis T. Beagle, John Leslie Dupre, and Frederick Watson.
Beginning with 1973's Sensuous Delights, Leslie was a performer in almost 300 adult films. He won numerous awards during his days as a performer. He appeared with some of the era's most noted porn stars, including; Seka, Kay Parker, Annette Haven, and Christy Canyon. His most noteworthy roles were in Talk Dirty To Me (1980), Nothing To Hide (1981), and Talk Dirty To Me, Part II (1982).
He was one of the first porn actors to make the transition from performing to directing, beginning with 1987's Nightshift Nurses. Since then he has directed more than 90 adult movies, including The Chameleon (1989), Curse of the Catwoman (1992), Dog Walker (1994), and Drop Sex (1997), along with the Voyeur, Fresh Meat and Crack Her Jack series. He won many awards for his work behind the cameras as well. Though much of his recent work, in keeping with current trends in adult video, has been in the gonzo genre--such as the "Fresh Meat" and "Crack Her Jack" series--Leslie has continued to make feature films, or "sex dramas"; most recently, in 2007 he directed the film "Brianna Love, Her Fine, Sexy Self," a star vehicle for the up-and-coming performer Brianna Love.
In the early 1970s, he was a vocalist and harmonica player for the The Brooklyn Blues Busters, a southeastern Michigan-based musical group. The Brooklyn Blues Busters quickly rose in the blues ranks and often backed up John Lee Hooker on his East Coast shows as well as Victoria Spivey, whom they called "Queenie". The Brooklyn Blues Busters were the backing band for Spivey during the 1973 Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival.
Nuzzo also worked for a time as a bartender in the early 1970's at Mr. Flood's Party, a bar in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

John Leslie Filmography
Actors Directed by John Leslie
“The JohnLeslie here just happens to be the famous performer-turned-director of porn movies. You have probably seen his name before (if not his cock) and you might even be familiar with his brand of porn. If you aren't, I can tell you that it is hot and it is hardcore. Horny pornstars, one-on-one fucking, threesomes, foursomes, anal, facials, rough deep throating, all of these are staples of a Mr. Leslie porn movie. ”() Rabbit’s Reviews (76/100)
“This is the official website of well-known Evil Angel porn producer, John Leslie, and offers a good selection of his movies and DVDs. A quick look around shows some pretty standard hardcore stuff; if anything, I'd guess there's a lean towards threesomes and anal, but those niches aren't too specific of course. “() TheBestPorn (77/100)
