On the box
‘ER’
Or, for UK readers, ‘Casualty’ with a humongo budget

¡Viva el doctor Clemente! Он тоже говорит по-русски. (Я его понял без проблем.)

It seems that the talented and potentially funny John Leguizamo finally has found a genre that works for him: edgy drama with some humour thrown in. A Colombian, he apparently can be as funny as Chris Rock or the ‘In Living Color’-era Wayans brothers but none of his past vehicles worked: ‘House of Buggin’’ and The Pest, one of the worst films I’ve ever had to sit through. (I was reviewing movies at the time, which is why I didn’t simply walk out. Wanted to though.) Even with that, though, you could see his potential: the bit in the shower at the very beginning is actually good.
