Leguizamo quotes
I was familiar with that and “Rio Bravo.” “Rio Bravo” was what John Carpenter did, that brilliant move of taking a western and turning it into an urban flick. And from there you got, you know, all the cop genre movies of the time.

Leguizamo John

John Leguizamo
Yeah, that came out of a reading. It was great. It's such a fun crew to be with, and we all went out the night before and that really encouraged us to go out and get drunk.




John Leguizamo quotes
I like drama. I love being in a drama where I get to be the funny guy. That's what I really love the most.
