Trivia that mentions this person:
Super Mario Bros. [1993]
  • John Leguizamo broke one of Bob Hoskins's fingers during a stunt involving the Mario van. According to Leguizamo, when it happened, Bob started cussing profusely and incoherently. For the rest of the film, Hoskins is wearing a cast that was painted pink to look like a hand.
  • In his 2007 autobiography John Leguizamo states he and Bob Hoskins hated working on the film and would frequently get drunk to make it through the experience. Both men apparently knew the movie would turn out bad, so they simply tried to make the best of it. He also stated he felt one of the biggest reasons the movie turned out the way it did was because the directors wanted a more "adult" movie while the studio, considering the source material, was looking for a children's film.
    Die Hard 2: Die Harder [1990]
  • According to John Leguizamo in his autobiography, his role was intended to be much larger until the filmmakers realized how short he was. His part was cut down to one line which was dubbed by someone else.
