#Fact
1Claims to be of partial Puerto Rican, Italian, and Lebanese descent.
2Mentioned on The Bob and Tom Show that he turned down the role of Tom Hanks' boyfriend in Philadelphia (1993) to do Super Mario Bros. (1993).
3Was considered for the role of Det. Rey Curtis on Law & Order (1990).
4His parents encouraged him to maintain his Spanish, sometimes with bribes. They spoke to him in Spanish, but he usually replied in English.
5Although he was born in a Spanish-speaking country and has understood Spanish since childhood, Cronicas (2004) is his first Spanish-language acting performance.
6Although he is about 5' 8" in reality, he has played two characters who are technically little people (under 4' 11"): the Clown in Spawn (1997) and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in Moulin Rouge! (2001).
7Was nominated for two Tony Awards in 1998: as Best Actor (Play) and as Author of Best Play nominee, his one-man show titled "Freak."
8For his role in Ice Age (2002), he tried a variety of different speaking voices for his character, Sid. After watching several hours of Discovery Channel footage of sloths, he developed the lisp, because sloths store food in their cheeks.
9Father of Lucas Leguizamo and Allegra Leguizamo.
10Majored in theater at New York University and was the only Latino in drama class.
11Began writing material for himself in high school, testing it out on classmates.
12Grew up in the Jackson Heights section of Queens, New York.
13Last name is actually pronounced: leh-gee-ZA-mo.
14John's parents divorced when he was in his teens.
15John and Justine welcomed son Ryder Lee, weighing 8lbs 1oz. [December 2000]
16Daughter, Allegra Sky, born (with girlfriend Justine Maurer). [October 1999]
17Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1991" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 43.
18Was accepted into Lee Strasberg's actors' studio and studied with the master for one day before Strasberg died. "I have that affect on people," Leguizamo quipped.
19Moved from Colombia to the United States with his family when he was three years old.
20Was voted "Most Talkative" in high school.

#Quote
1Marriage is wild. I thought it was this perfect land of happiness and joy. Wrong! After you say you do, you don't for a long time.
2I loved working on Carlito's Way (1993) with Brian De Palma - it was so exciting and the first time I really understood what film acting was for me.
3"Because you get to be free. Not that there's a problem with being the leading man, but the leading roles are always tough. It's hard. It's a really hard thing to do right, to get right, and it's not as fun to be the leading man. Being a supporting actor you have no responsibility. You just go there to play and have a really great time. And you have a really great time. You just go home and you enjoy everybody. When I'm the lead in a movie, you don't sleep, you focus on every aspect of the movie and it's a huge responsibility. And there aren't that many great leading parts, either. There are more, better written supporting parts than there are leading parts." - On why he always seems to play supporting roles.
4I love independent films, it's the only place as an actor you're totally allowed to breathe. You're not following the plot, or the next action beat, or promoting some big dumb movie. Independent film is for actors that love to act. There's more interesting storytelling. It's not about a paycheck, that's for damn sure.
5"I always improvise, you know. That's my thing. Luckily, I'm a writer, so I always try...If there's great writing, improvising just adds a little bit more to it. Just takes it to another level. 'Cause an actor, believe it or not, really knows his character more than anybody else, even more than the original writer. Even more than the director. At some point, we know that character better than anybody else. Especially if you connect with it, and it's infinite possibilities that can come out of you. And I think the better directors know that they have final cut, and the more they let you go, the more choices they're gonna have in the editing room to create a performance or to change things. I mean, you just give them crazy choices and they can do whatever. A smart director, the more confident ones who have experience, know that in the editing room, it's all theirs. It's not a problem. It's the newer cats who haven't had experience who are sometimes a little too precious about their own words." - On improvising in films.
6Comics are much smarter than actors. Most comedians come from a hard life, and have to struggle a lot. You have to have a lot of skills. When you can hone all of that, and act, you're going to blow the world away.
7I see the new Latin artist as a pioneer, opening up doors for others to follow. And when they don't open, we crowbar our way in.
8On what was it like in the Clown suit while filming Spawn (1997): "Like a penis wearing a condom".
