RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - As we learn VCU coach Shaka Smart will be sticking around Richmond a little longer, we're also are learning some VCU players will get a little taste of Hollywood this week.

VCU's star point guard, Joey Rodriguez will be on the George Lopez show on TBS Wednesday night.

The VCU senior said on twitter that he's flying to L.A. to make the appearance, And don't be surprised if you also see another VCU player.

Rodriguez tells our morning producer he was allowed to bring teammate Ed Nixon on his trip to the show.
