2011 Drama Desk Award winner John Leguizamo will star in ABC's comedy pilot Only Fools And Horses, according to Deadline.com.

The site reports that the series will chronicle the misadventures of two streetwise brothers, Del (Leguizamo) and Rodney, and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes.

The actor recently signed a development deal with ABC, which also includes the possibility of creating a series based on Leguizamo's life.

Leguizamo won the Drama Desk for Ghetto Klown, which he is currently touring. His previous shows include Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholix... A Love Story, and his many other stage credits include A Midsummer Night's Dream and La Puta Vida. He won an Emmy Award for the televised version of Freak on HBO.
