Report: George Lopez Eyed to Replace Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice

George Lopez Celebrity Apprentice

By George, he’s (almost) got it.

Actor-comedian George Lopez is in talks with NBC to replace Donald Trump in the boardroom on Celebrity Apprentice, according to a report in Wednesday’s New York Post

The Post story cautions that the conversations are in the early stages and that the network is casting “a wide net” for Trumps successor. (Among those also being eyed: Shark Tank‘s Mark Cuban.)

NBC last month fired the outspoken entrepreneur-turned-presidential hopeful in the wake of his inflammatory statements about Mexican immigrants.
