SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Hot off the success of Ice Age: Continental Drift, John Leguizamo has lined up a trio of projects, including a role in the sequel to Kick-Ass.
Based on the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., Kick-Ass 2 will see the return of stars Aaron Johnson as the title character, Chloe Moretz as Hit-Girl and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist. According to Deadline, Leguizamo will play Red Mist’s bodyguard Javier.
The site also reports that Leguizamo will join Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt and Penelope Cruz in The Counselor, the film directed by Ridley Scott from a script by Cormac McCarthy- about a lawyer who thinks he can easily join in on the drug game without getting his hands dirty. As if all that weren’t enough, the actor is set to star in the ABC pilot Only Fools and Horses. It’s a good time to be a John Leguizamo fan or the man himself!
