First Look: John Leguizamo as Pablo Escobar from "The Ballad of Pablo Escobar" Audition

First Look: John Leguizamo as Pablo Escobar from "The Ballad of Pablo Escobar" AuditionSubmit Comment
A few years ago, "The Lincoln Lawyer" director Brad Furman was attached to direct "The Ballad of Pablo Escobar," a movie about the drug kingpin, who was going to be played by Oscar Isaac.

Furman seems to still be attached to the project, but Isaac dropped out. Soon after, Wagner Moura (Elysium) entered talks to take over the role, but has since dropped out as well.

Now comes word that John Leguizamo, who worked with Furman on "The Lincoln Lawyer," is heavily pursuing the lead and has even put together his own screen test. The actor underwent lots of make-up sessions to turn himself into Escobar. He revealed a photo of the result, adding that he's actually being considered, but there's another actor who's also in talks.

Check out the photo of Leguizamo as Escobar below.

Benicio Del Toro is the only actor that should ever considered for a Pablo Escobar role.

More pointless glamorization of drugs, trafficking and the wholesale of narcotics.

I'd watch this movie. I've read of Pablo Escobar before, this sounds interesting.
