jlAccording to TV Guide's website, John Leguizamo has signed on the join the cast of NBC's 600 pound gorilla, ER. Word is that Leguizamo will "replace" Noah Wyle, whatever that means. I guess he's a body, which Wyle was, but he's not a skinny white guy playing a characters named John Carter or anything. Or at least I don't think he is - though that could make for some interesting TV.

It'll also be interesting to see if Leguizamo's audience (of which I consider myself a rabid element) follows him to ER, since apart from aberrations like Super Mario Bros. and Spawn, his starring roles have mostly been outside the mainstream. Personally, I'm torn: I hate ER but am grateful for the chance to see Leguizamo every week, so I'm ashamed to say I'll probably follow him, at least at first.
