George Lopez has “been out there with Barack Obama trying to get voters to register and vote” for selfish reasons, the comedic actor said on the The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet.
“He hasn’t nominated a Vice President yet,” Lopez, who is starring as a priest investigating miracles in Henry Poole Is Here with Luke Wilson, said. “I would bring (to the Vice Presidency) not only the Nick at Nite audience and great salsa music, I would make Carlos Santana Secretary of State.”
The groundbreaking comedian, who was the first Latino to lead a TV series successfully (besides Desi Arnaz of I Love Lucy), also made Time magazine’s 25 Most Influential Hispanics list.
“I put that list together…I’m going to come clean right now,” he said. “I admire Jenifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas, who were named. Erik Estrada should have been on there!” he joked. “I would have put him somewhere in the high 80’s.”
