NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Actor John Leguizamo plays an undercover narcotics agent alongside Bryan Craston in the new movie, 'The Infiltrator.'
The year is 1986 and the character played by the Queens native is looking to take down the banks funding Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
The pair infiltrate Escobar's cartel, but instead of taking down the criminals, they become addicted to the high life.
"Normal life becomes a little too boring for them. It really captures what happens to an undercover cop. They are living large. They are living like king pins and then they have to go back home and take out the garbage," said Leguizamo.
'The Infiltrator' is now open in theaters.
