John Alberto Leguizamo (born July 22, 1964) is a Hispanic actor (Colombian, ''not'' half Puerto Rican as once believed, but anyway raised in the Bronx) best known for his movie and TV roles. Mostly a comedian but has done serious roles too.

His most famous role may be as Luigi in the ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' movie, although it is an OldShame that he (and Creator/BobHoskins) got through by being drunk the entire time. Unless you count [[VoiceActor voice acting]], then he's probably more famous as the voice of Sid The Sloth in the ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'' animated movies.

Tends to [[{{Satire}} satirize]] his own Hispanic nature, as in his (most infamous) role as Pestario Vargas in ''Film/ThePest''. Also plays [[CampGay 'flamboyant']] roles as in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar''.

His best role probably was Benny Blanco in the film ''Film/CarlitosWay''.

In 2008, he received the Rita Moreno Award for Excellence from the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors (HOLA).
