John Leguizamo to play Del Boy in US Only Fools and Horses pilot

John Leguizamo, known for films including Moulin Rouge!, The Happening, and Gamer, has been cast as Del Boy in the pilot for the Only Fools and Horses US remake.

The actors who will play Rodney and Grandad in are still unknown at this time.

The pilot was announced in January to be aired later this year, and if successful, a full series will be made after.

Steven Cragg and Brian Bradley – the writers behind hit US sitcom Scrubs – will be writing the episode.

David Jason, who played the original Del Boy, has expressed his doubts about the success of the show in the US, saying, “They can do brilliant comedy [in America] but I don’t see that they can bring off Fools and Horses.” He went on to say, “I don’t see that it will travel across the pond.
