John Leguizamo News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
John Leguizamo Tickets - The Quintessential Live Version of Luigi
Yes, this was the man that played Luigi, Mario's brother from the classic Nintendo game turned live film. But before he became a major movie star, he started off kind of small -- at New York University. From the very beginning, this Colombian-born superstar saw the world on July 22, 1964, and then began studying with the late and legendary Lee Strasberg for only day -- the legend then died. It was funny when Leguizamo then commented that he had that 'effect on people.'
John Leguizamo Tickets - Definitely Not a Pest
Although he may have played one in a film, or two, or maybe three. But originally Leguizamo started off his entertaining career as a stand-up comedian, working in several New York clubs. His work began to evolve in a major way when he landed a debut on the iconic '80s television show with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas: 'Miami Vice.' From then on, his actor creds morphed to the silver screen when he landed a small role in 1989 in De Palma's 'Casualties of War' with Michael J. Fox. Achieving other spectacular roles, he starred in 'Die Hard 2' with Bruce Willis, 'Regarding Henry' with Harrison Ford, 'Executive Decision' with Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal, 'Carlito's Way' with Al Pacino, and a feature film called 'Pest.' He stunned the movie industry with his stirring performance as Tybalt in 'William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet' in 1996, a contributing role in a thriller with Robert Dinero and Wesley Snipes called 'The Fan' in 1996, a comedic/dark starring role opposite Michael Jai White as the clown in the movie 'Spawn' in 1997, and the voice of a rat in the film 'Dr. Dolittle' with Eddie Murphy. With all these accolades, some of his best work was on stage with productions like 'Mambo Mouth,' 'Spic-O-Rama,' and 'Freak,' all tremendous one-man comedy shows on Broadway.
