We may be closer to the long-awaited Spawn reboot than we have ever been before, and one original cast member is dying to return, and that's no joke. John Leguizamo, who played the villain "Clown" in the 1997 original film, said he wants a piece of the action and even if he can't reprise his previous role, he's willing to play a minor part or even a cameo.
Although it may not be his best-known role, Leguizamo admits that Clown is his favorite villain. “He gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted, and I did whatever I wanted," he said of the film.
He admits that the role was so fulfilling that he wants to be involved in the reboot in any way possible. “I don't know if I can play Clown again if lightning strikes twice like that,” Leguizamo said. “But I'd love to make a comeback someday.”
As it stands, the film may not include Clown or any of Spawn's more flamboyant villains. Todd McFarlane has described his vision of the reboot as "mature and sophisticated" and intends to "make it ugly, dark, make children cry." Jamie Foxx will play the lead actor in the film, while Matthew Mixon (Joker) will play the writer.
