When he was four years old, John Leguizamo emigrated to New York City. The actor credits his small stature in rough neighborhoods like Queens and Jackson Heights as the reason for developing his acting and comedy skills. Best known for Moulin Rouge! and Ice Age as well as his own unique brand of stand-up comedy, Leguizamo has won a Drama Desk Award for his one-man Broadway show turned film, Freak.
