A multi-faceted performer and Emmy Award winner, John Leguizamo has established a career that defies categorization. With boundless and visceral creativity, his work in film, theatre, television, and literature covers a variety of genres, continually threatening to create a few of its own.
This year, Leguizamo completed production on three back-to-back films: The Nest, American Ultra, and The Man on Carrion Road. Leguizamo recently starred alongside writer/director Jon Favreau in Chef and in the breakout comedy hit Ride Along, opposite Ice Cube and Kevin Hart. He also just completed production on Cymbeline, a modern-day take on Shakespeare’s play, and Stealing Cars. Leguizamo’s other film credits include Walking with Dinosaurs, The Counselor, Kick-Ass 2, the Ice Agefranchise, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and many more.
Leguizamo just debuted his 5th HBO solo special, Ghetto Klown, an adaptation of his Drama Desk Award-winning one-man stage show of the same name. Written by Leguizamo, Ghetto Klown is directed by Fisher Stevens, who directed the Broadway production and national tour.
To add to his list of attributes, Leguizamo is also an accomplished author. He penned his autobiography Pimps, Hos, Playa Hatas, and All the Rest of My Hollywood Friends, which was released in 2006. The New York Times called the book “brutally funny,” while USA Today coined Leguizamo as “one of the most exciting talents to come along in some time.”
