John Leguizamo will be Del Boy

Whether you like it or not, the American remake of Only Fools and Horses is definitely going ahead.

Announced last month, the show has just bagged itself a lead in the shape of Carlito's Way star John Leguizamo.

The ABC update will see Leguizamo play "an overly confident bon vivant and con artist who trades crap out of the back of his car, cheerful and oblivious to the fact that he is a lowlife scamster." The Colombian actor is also known for his roles in Romeo + Juliet and, ermmm, Super Mario Bros.

His character will be called Del and the makers are still on the hunt for Rodney. The show is being brought to American audiences by Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley, who have previously worked together on Scrubs.

It's set to hit US screens by the end of the year. Thoughts?
