John Leguizamo Signs On For Two High-Profile Movies

By Michael Lopez

Someone in Hollywood must have really liked John Leguizamo's portrayal of Sid in Ice Age 4. This week it was announced that the he's booked roles in two more prominent flicks, The Counselor and Kick-Ass 2.

The Counselor will be a heavy courtroom drama directed by Ridley Scott. Penelope Cruz, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem are all headliners and John has signed on to play a nasty drug dealer.

Kick-Ass 2 really needs no introduction as it's the sequel to one of 2010's most popular underground flicks. Part superhero film, part fist-to-the-face action epic, Kick-Ass is definitely a franchise worth putting on your radar. And Leguizamo will be suiting up to play the Red Mist’s bodyguard.

But knowing John, that's hardly enough. The hard-working Tr3s fave is also plotting out the details for his own ABC pilot, which may get picked up sometime in 2013.
