Genre-defying actor John Leguizamo ('Romeo + Juliet', 'Carlito's Way,' 'To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar') is set to debut his latest one-man show, 'Ghetto Klown,' for an 11-day run in Toronto beginning November 9. This is Leguizamo's fifth one-man show, and he promises it will raise the bar for one-man shows everywhere. The show is based on Leguizamo's life, and includes some of his deepest, darkest secrets that he previously only told his therapist. He enlisted long-time friend Fisher Stevens (who recently won an Oscar for his producing role on 'The Cove') to direct the show.

The famously-energetic Leguizamo has also just wrapped filming the movie 'Fugly,' which is a fictionalized version of 'Ghetto Klown.' He spent eight years nurturing this passion project, which he developed at the Sundance Institute's Writer's and Producer's Labs. On top of all of that, he's also in several upcoming movies, including 'Vanishing on 7th Street,' 'One for the Money,' and 'The Lincoln Lawyer.'

Moviefone caught up with Leguizamo to talk about everything from blunt fans to why he loves Kevin Smith to how he maintains his famous energy levels – and flexibility!
