Actor Discusses Influences, Looks Back at Forgotten Roles

Veteran actor John Leguizamo spoke with affiliates of Envision Networks®’ Guest Services and discussed who his influences were growing up in the industry, along with roles he had forgotten about.

In an interview with Morning Bull with Rich and Rob on WGRF-FM/Buffalo, Leguizamo discussed who his biggest influences were in the entertainment business. Listen to the clip here:

“When I was a kid, it was Eugene O’Neill and Richard Pryor. Those were my huge influences, with a little bit of Jonathan Winters, when I was a little, little kid,” Leguizamo said. “Then when I was writing, it was Eric Bogosian and Spalding Gray and Whoopi Goldberg that got me sort of into [thinking], ‘How can I take a little bit of what they got and make it my own?’ And I came up with my own hybrid, [it was] sort of a one-man play about myself.”

Rich and Jeremy in the Morning on WGZZ-FM/Auburn, AL asked Leguizamo about any roles he has forgotten about. He discussed his role in Frogs and Snakes.

“You always do learn something no matter what…I think there was something called Frogs and Snakes. That was weird. I barely remember anything of that,” he said. Listen to the full interview here:
