Speaker 1 (00:00):
Mario fun with Mario.

Speaker 2 (00:02):
Lopez, Tobrael.

Speaker 1 (00:04):
Mario Lopez joining me now on zoom from nine to
one one. In the new movie The Present actor Ryan Guzman,
Welcome to the show man.

Speaker 2 (00:11):
I then, oh, man, always a pleasure to see your face. Brother.
I've been great, man.

Speaker 3 (00:16):
I can't complain living in gratitude and just taking my
time with my kids as of late.

Speaker 1 (00:21):
Oh that's the best. I want to get to that
in a second. But meanwhile, congrats on the new movie
The Present. It looks like a fun kids type of adventure. Well,
what's it about.

Speaker 2 (00:30):
Yeah, so it's a nice family film.

Speaker 3 (00:33):
It's about two individuals played by Greg Knear and Isla Fisher,
who happened to be getting a divorce, and in the
midst of that divorce, their kids want to save the relationship,
so they are gifted a grandfather clock that happens to
turn back time.

Speaker 2 (00:47):
I'm going to use that clock to try and mend
the relationship.

Speaker 1 (00:51):
Oh I like that concept right there. And how does
your character fit in?

Speaker 2 (00:54):

Speaker 3 (00:55):
I played Richard. I play a guy hot after Isla
Fisher's character can make that he can weasel his way in.

Speaker 1 (01:03):
Oh okay, she seems like she'd be a lot of
fun to work with.

Speaker 2 (01:06):
She was fantastic.

Speaker 1 (01:08):

Speaker 3 (01:08):
I gotta say nothing but incredible things about her, because
she gave me some incredible advice off off camera and
and just gave me really inspirational stuff to feed off of.

Speaker 2 (01:19):
So she was amazing.

Speaker 1 (01:21):
Oh that's great, Well, congrats on that. And season seven
of nine one one recently ended, and your character was
having an affair with someone who looked like his late wife.
That's some serious soap opera vibes right there. But Helen
Novella's yeah, Telen Novella, for sure, man, but also pretty emotional.
What do you think is gonna be in store for
your character season eight?

Speaker 2 (01:41):
Uh? Probably a lot of drama.

Speaker 3 (01:44):
I mean that's what we thrive, right, So I'm guessing
that you know, his whole foundation, my character, Eddie, his
foundation has been ripped from him. His kids no longer there,
he doesn't have any relationship. He said goodbye to his
deceased wife now a billion times. So now it's probably

going to be him finding himself all over again in
a new landscape.

Speaker 2 (02:08):
And what I think might happen.

Speaker 3 (02:10):
And I'm no writer, but I would think that it's
kind of relatable to when in such chaos you try
and escape. So he's going to want to escape somewhere,
and whether that's a healthy escape or a non healthy
escape to be determined.

Speaker 1 (02:27):
Yeah, I've got the chance to interview a lot of
your fellow castmates, all really nice and it's great to
see you guys having such a nice run. However, I
haven't seen Jennifer Love Hewitt, who I've known since she
was like twelve, in a long time. But we got
on the phone, all three of us in not too long.
It was so nice to hear her voice. Please give
love my love and hope to get to see her soon.

Speaker 2 (02:50):
Love to love. Yeah, it was.

Speaker 3 (02:53):
Nice being on the other side of the phone and
seeing her reaction to your voice, because man, she lit up.

Speaker 2 (02:59):
She's oh my god, Yeah she is right. She's been
that way the whole time.

Speaker 1 (03:04):
Right, Yes, that's cool man, And I didn't know, right.
You're also an artist, brother, Like, well, what in what
sense of painting or sculpting or.

Speaker 2 (03:14):
All the above. I like mixed media.

Speaker 3 (03:16):
I dabble and damn near everything, But I think artist
is a generalized term.

Speaker 2 (03:22):
So for me, what artist is is just a storyteller.

Speaker 3 (03:26):
So I'm just trying to tell my stories, whether it's
you know, on the canvas or sculpting or you know,
as an actor, even martial arts. To be honest, I'm
telling a version of my story. Yeah, I'm allowing myself
to fight through something or letting something take over me.
So all of it is encompassing of who I am
and what I like to do.

Speaker 2 (03:46):
But just recently I felt a little bit more confident
with sharing my art.

Speaker 1 (03:52):

Speaker 2 (03:53):
Good for you.

Speaker 1 (03:54):
No, I agree too. The martial arts is definitely a
creative outlet, both physically, therapeutically, emotionally all of the above.
You look in great shape, man, You're still training a lot.

Speaker 2 (04:06):
When we're gonna get back to it, brother, like, let's
do it.

Speaker 3 (04:08):
Let me know.

Speaker 1 (04:09):
Let me know. I was all jacked up for a minute.
I had a bad pinch nerve and I couldn't train
for a few months. But I'm kind of getting back
in there. And that's good man, that's good that.

Speaker 2 (04:17):
You get back that next pardon me, when are you sparring?
Next shoot?

Speaker 1 (04:21):
I'll probably try to get in there maybe like a
week or two.

Speaker 3 (04:24):
So, uh man, I got three weeks okay, ready to
do something?

Speaker 1 (04:28):
Okay, I'm around two.

Speaker 2 (04:29):
I'm round. You rolled too, right? Do jujitsu? Yeah? I
haven't rolled in a while.

Speaker 3 (04:34):
I've been actually just doing boxing ever since we sparred,
I got more in tune with the boxing the weakest.

Speaker 2 (04:43):
Where are you training at right now?

Speaker 3 (04:46):
It's just still that city out tongue or just by
myself with a bunch of other that fight. So it's
whenever I can get the rounds in with whoever.

Speaker 1 (04:53):
Perfect man, Hey, I'm around this next week, let me know,
let me know all the schedule looks if you're around.

Speaker 2 (04:57):
Brother, Yes, new gloves okay?

Speaker 3 (04:59):
Sound good?

Speaker 2 (05:00):

Speaker 1 (05:00):
And how old are the kids now?

Speaker 2 (05:02):
Three and five? Jenne? That's my life right there.

Speaker 1 (05:05):
It's fun. Huh, it's fun. Are they are they?

Speaker 3 (05:08):

Speaker 1 (05:08):
Because we had talked for a little bit. Are they
Are they getting into any sort of kind of activities?
Are so interested in getting them in wrestling and stuff?

Speaker 2 (05:14):
Yeah? Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 3 (05:15):
So I would love to get my little girl because
her balance is a little off and I think wrestling
could be very advantageous for her that in gymnastics maybe.
But my son, you know, he's a ball of energy.
You know you have two sons, so and I watch
your kids Man, I want my kid to like learn
from that as well. So uh yeah, just getting them

in tune with their bodies and allowing them to play
at this stage, because I think one to seven is
that that good range to fall in love with that
state of play and develop that structure slowly but surely.
So we're seeing what tao Is is interested in or
not and showed a heavy interest in soccer and white tie.

Speaker 1 (05:56):
Well, if you want to still have my guy hooke
up with them, man, I'm I'm telling you he's great.
I think your kids will love it. It's great for
their confidence as well as all the other things you mentioned.
So yeah, let me know and let me know when
we'll get together. Meanwhile, congratulations on everything and listen. The
Present is available now on digital and on demand. Ryan,
thanks for hanging out.

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
