Through season 2 of Netflix’s Bloodline, John Leguizamo’s character provides for some chaos as the Rayburn family tries to put itself back together.

Leguizamo plays Danny’s (Ben Mendelsohn) friend Ozzy in the second season, who wants to take the Rayburn family to task after Danny’s death. Yet, Leguizamo doesn’t see Ozzy as just a villainous criminal.

“I don’t want to pigeonhole [Ozzy] as a criminal,” Leguizamo said in a new interview with The Daily Beast. “But a lot of people who go on the wrong side of the law are super intelligent but don’t have the moral backbone. They can’t survive watching other people get things they felt like they deserved. They want the American dream. They want it just like those people over there, but society said you can’t have it because you were born over here.”


This societal commentary appealed to Leguizamo, particularly with the storyline involving immigrants coming in to Florida.

“I was very fascinated that there’s a social stance,” he admitted. “With so much hate and so much xenophobia coming from our political candidates, it makes the country act in weird ways. When Trump said a lot of that stuff about Latin people it gives others an excuse to act out. So I think it’s important to comment and show the plight and show what the people are really like, which is not the damaging picture that he presented.”

Leguizamo, who has starred in a number of films and TV shows over the years, also suggested that Netflix is really the place to be right now for strong writing.

“You chase great writing and wherever that is, you gotta go,” he explained. “Like a migrant farmer. Wherever the ripe fruit are that’s where I want to go picking. Cable and streaming is the place to chase the great writing right now.”

Bloodline‘s first two seasons are available to stream now on Netflix.
