John Leguizamo Fires More Rounds Than Ever

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Emmy Award-winning actor John Leguizamo is known for being a straight shooter, and for his latest role, he really had to bite the bullet.

Leguizamo is starring as an Iraq War vet who leads a bank heist gone wrong in Spike TV’s dramatic mini-series, The Kill Point, and during filming, he was firing guns left and right.

Says Leguizamo: “I’ve shot a gun in almost every film I’ve ever done, but for The Kill Point series, I had to shoot thousands and thousands of rounds. I shot so many times, they literally had to sweep the floor after every take!”

And while Leguizamo was firin’ away, he called in some very cute backup to help him bust a cap.

Like father like kids, Leguizamo’s own tots visited him on the set and practiced their slick shooting skills by unleashing their water guns on the film crew.

He explains, “At one point, every sound operator, actor, and director was hiding from my son and daughter so they could dodge their water guns. It was hilarious!”

Still, despite the chaos, Leguizamo was a proud papa.

He boasts, “What can I say? Good shooters run in my family!”

The Kill Point premieres this Sunday (July 22) on Spike TV.
