Actor John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge!, Summer of Sam, Ice Age) is promoting his film Fugly, which opens Friday before going to video on demand on November 25. Leguizamo plays Jesse Sanchez, a nerdy kid who becomes a Don Juan in college and then gets into acting only to land stereotypical Latino roles – drug dealers, gangsters, killers, rapists. “That was my life!” Leguizamo said in an interview.
Besides working with Rosie Perez on Fugly, and filming the new Amy Poehler/Tina Fey project The Next, Leguizamo is publishing his first graphic novel, “Ghetto Klown,” based on his play of the same name.
