NBC is returning George Lopez to prime time for the 2022-2023 TV season with a new family sitcom. Lopez vs. Lopez, with real-life daughter Mayan Lopez. The show turned out to have a recipe for success being cast in the fall, earning a 22-episode full season order. Season 1 is full of big family Lopez pranks. Actor Matt Sibley, who plays the lovable Quinten, opened up about the comedy legend’s hands-on approach and how it helped him.
Quinten and George may not have the most solid relationship on the show (despite sharing a hug after George) I know what Quinten’s dad thinks of him), but in a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Matt Sibley had nothing but praise for George Lopez. He shared his experience working with Lopez and what he learned from him, stating:
i am doing this [acting] I was successful for 15 and a half years, but every time I got a job I would say, ‘I’m so lucky to be here. When I did, I wanted to take a slightly different look at it and say, “They’re as lucky to have me as I was lucky to be there.” I wanted to approach things systematically, but George was very hands-on with everything. Same? Can you also spit out your ideas and opinions about things?”

Shirey continued:
He’s been very open from the start and I think it’s hard to find someone with over 30 years of success in this industry. It was a really great moment where I thought, “Wow, okay, this is a team effort.” I wasn’t 100% sure if it was going to happen, but what allowed me to work with him and bring my ideas and things to the table and let him fully open his arms It was a great experience to start with. I just breathed a sigh of relief because I felt like, “Whoa, I’m really a part of this.” It was the first time I really felt like I was part of the creative process, not just being on stage, but saying my lines and walking away.
George Lopez has experienced some ups and downs in his decades of success. Health hazards in the second half of 2021. He bring lots of laughter upon Lopez vs. Lopezhowever, Shared by creator Debbie Wolfe He “really comes to life in front of a live studio audience”. I admired the improvisational skills he brought. Lopez vs. LopezThe Quinten actor said:
He is one of the fastest people I have ever met. Working with someone who is good at improvising and has very quick toes will only make you faster. It was a great learning experience. I feel he has grown more as an actor and creatively in these six months than he has in the last 15 years of work. So this was the project I had to do and being able to work with those people was a dream come true and a real blessing.
