Most of us have awakened in the middle of the night to the George Lopez opening credits running on TV. As it turns out, we actually have Sandra Bullock to thank for that! In the early ’90s, George Lopez was a comedian working the comedy club circuit in southern California.

At the same time, Bullock was looking for Latino talent to feature in a show that would promote visibility for Latinos in America. Bullock went to see Lopez perform in 2000 and afterward, visited him backstage to pitch the show.
