After news emerged that John Leguizamo had been cast as Del Boy in the American remake of Only Fools and Horses, we were waiting patiently for any Rodney-related information.

It's finally here, although it might be received with a bit of a shrug.

Dustin Ybarra anyone? Anyone? The curly-haired comic is somewhat of an unknown, with only small roles in Hop and the upcoming Matt Damon drama We Bought A Zoo and, ermm, just 339 followers on Twitter.

The US remake is set to air on ABC this Autumn. It will chronicle "the misadventures of two streetwise brothers, Del and Rodney, and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires".

You can take a look at Ybarra's stand-up below. Let us know what you think right after.
