Leguizamo's 1992 follow-up, Spic-O-Rama, continued on in the same vein. His 1998 offering, Freak, was equally successful and turned into an HBO special directed by Spike Lee. 2001 saw Leguizamo return to the stage with Sexaholix...a Love Story, which was based on his sold-out national tour, "John Leguizamo Live!"
Leguizamo's onstage success led to television opportunities. Reluctant to take part in a situation comedy, he convinced the FOX Network to carry a Latino-flavored variety show called House of Buggin'. Although the show lasted only one season, it performed well in metropolitan markets and boosted Leguizamo's film profile.
He then played a drag queen in the commercially successful To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995) and Tybalt in the daring modernization of Romeo and Juliet (1996). Roles in everything from smash hits like Ice Age and turns as television doctors on E.R. have followed.
Leguizamo married Justine Maurer in 2003. They have two children; daughter Allegra Sky was born in 1999 and son Ryder Lee followed in 2000.
