In February 1996 Loren met actor John Travolta while working as a stand-in on the set of Face/Off. Loren put his music on hold to work with Travolta. In 1997, Loren had a small role in the movie The General's Daughter. In late 2007 Loren decided to go back to music, launching his debut solo album titled Forever Be Cool in June 2008. The release party was hosted by television personality Mark Steines of Entertainment Tonight and attended by Travolta, Nikki Blonsky, Luis Guzmán, Chubby Checker, and director Tony Scott. His album reached number 6 on the Top 40 AC chart in January 2009.
While filming From Paris with Love  in Paris, France in December 2008, Loren suffered a severe broken ankle after a stunt went wrong and he fell three stories out of a window. This led Loren to evaluate his profession as a stuntman and he redirected his career towards hosting and producing film and television. One of Loren's first producing endeavors was Dog-On Television, a DVD for stay at home dogs. The DVD has been featured in O Magazine, on Dateline NBC's Pet Nation, Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. Along with producing, Loren has gone on to become a television personality for the magazine style talk show First Coast Living.
Since 2009, Loren has been traveling the country teaching workshops to children and young adults on how to handle being in the entertainment business. Loren was a single dad to his 5-year-old son before he married television production manager Denise Loren September 9, 2000. They now have two children together.
