Longtime funnyman and TV personality, George Lopez, returns to television, but this time he is shaking things up a bit as a guest star on Disney's Shake It Up.
Starring present DWTS castmate Zendaya as Rocky Blue and her best friend, CeCe Jones, played by Bella Thorne, Shake It Up follows the two gals as they begin to fulfill their dreams of becoming professional dancers when they land roles on the local dance competition show, 'Shake It Up, Chicago!'
Inspired by real-life popular dance competition shows like DWTS and So You Think You Can Dance, Shake It Up chronicles the tweeny boppers as they learn how to balance being in the public eye all while maintaining their social status at school and going through adolescence. Help consistently comes in the form of frenemy Tinka (Caroline Sunshine), Rocky's older brother Ty (Roshon Fegan) and his right-hand man, Deuce Martinez (Adam Irigoyen). In short, it's kind of like Hannah Montana without the secret identity or wigs.
In this exclusive sneak peek, George Lopez plays Deuce's father, George Martinez. George and Deuce set out to win the Father and Son bowling title again but face some steep competition when a mother and daughter team compete - Deuce's girlfriend Dina and her mom. Deuce's hands are seemingly tied, but he gets some strongly worded advice from his dad which is not limited to how to win the coveted bowling title, but life lessons, including when to use Spanish swear words.
This episode of Shake It Up airs Sunday, May 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
