We all know the Mayor has a mega-watt smile and has been a political celebrity since his election last May but the question remains: does he have comic timing?
Well, we'll all get the chance to find out when he makes an appearance on The George Lopez Show on October 5th. He plays himself in the episode in which George Lopez is impersonating him. Reality Show Bounty Hunter "Dog" is also in the episode.
As Franklin Avenue points out, though, Lopez was not one of the Mayor's supporters during the campaign. He was in the Richard Alacorn camp. Maybe they'll play that up in the episode and give Villaraigosa some good one-liners.
Now the governor isn't the only one with an acting resumé.
