Actors George Lopez, Oscar J. Gutierrez and Anthony “Citric” Campos on location outside of “Carrillo’s Tortilleria” in the San Fernando Valley, CA.

Great News! I have been waiting for a while to announce that after months of hard work, the pilot I was cast in March 2015 has been bought by CBS for 12 episodes (1 season) for 2016.  George Lopez who is a comedian renown for the ABC comedy “George Lopez” and with whom I participated in the movie “Spare Parts” will have his own show again in 2016 and I will have a recurrent role (Eduardo) in it. Eduardo is a waiter in a restaurant in the San Fernando Valley “Carrillo’s” to where George Lopez goes when he is feeling the pressures of his life in Hollywood. Eduardo is one of his “homies” whom treats George as just another friend from the barrio – along with Manolo (Anthony Citric Campos). John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky will write and executive produce the series while Michael Rotenberg of 3 Arts Entertainment and Troy Miller will also executive produce and direct.  The series will be based on the struggles of George as he tries to balance the working-class Latino sphere from which he came and the celebrity lifestyle which he currently has. I invite you to watch the show and I will keep you posted on any new developments. In the meantime, here’s the trailer/teaser for the first episode. Enjoy!


Collage Imagen Awards 1Imagen Awards 2

I feel blessed to have been able to attend the 30th annual Imagen Awards 2015. My movie “Spare Parts” was nominated for four awards; Best movie: Spare Parts, Best Actor: George Lopez, Best Director: Sean McNamara, and Best Supporting Actor: Esai Morales. I am happy to announce that we won two of those coveted awards: Best Director: Sean McNamara and Best Actor: George Lopez. I am also extremely happy because this project not only opened the doors of acting and Hollywood for me, but it also introduced me to some of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I can truly say we have become a close knit group and family.

This event also gave me the opportunity to meet icons such as Edward James Olmos, Norman Lear, Rita Moreno, Paula Abdul, Rosalyn Sanchez, America Ferrera, Jon Seda, Rico and Raini Rodriguez, and so many others. In addition, I had the opportunity of interacting and spending time with the cast of McFarland USA, American Crime, and East Los High which are mainly young up-and-coming latino actors and David Barrera and his beautiful wife Maria Canals-Barrera.  David is a native of the Rio Grande Valley just like myself and I was looking forward to finally meeting him.

It was truly a memorable night full of stars and fun. I learned a great deal from everyone present and I look forward to one day being nominated for the honor of an imagen award. Until then, I will continue to look up to the many great mentors and role models I have in the industry.
