Ohhh, Romeo!

If you’ve ever wanted to know what Romeo from “Romeo & Juliet” would sound like if he were a foul-mouthed criminal, you’re in for a real treat!

HuffPost Live asked John Leguizamo to recite Romeo’s monologue as Rose, his character from the action comedy film "American Ultra." The 51-year-old comedian and actor obliged, giving us a character mashup that will forever change the way we look at one of Shakespeare’s most romantic (and naïve) protagonists.

Watch Leguizamo's hilarious character mashup in the video above. Check out the full segment below to watch Leguizamo discuss the lack of representation of Latinos in both film and U.S. history.
