John Leguizamo, who launched his career writing and performing one-man stage shows, has transferred that voice to the big screen. Leguizamo just wrapped Fugly!, a comedy he wrote and stars in, along with Rahda Mitchell, Rosie Perez, Ioan Gruffudd, Ally Sheedy and Griffin Dunne. Leguizamo plays a New York comedian struggling to make the right choices in his pursuit of love and happiness. A near-death experience forces him to choose between the wife he no longer loves and the college crush he regrets losing. Alfredo De Villa directed the independently-financed film, which Leguizamo produced with Laura Knight and Danny Bigel. The film features animation created by Bill Plympton.
