Also available on the nbc app

It truly is a small world! Jay Hernandez chatted with longtime pal Mario Lopez on Access Daily and they recalled how an early mutual Hollywood connection led Jay to his big break! Jay shared, “I ran into a guy, literally in an elevator. He saw me walk in and he jumped in and from like the tenth floor to the first floor, he pitched me on like how I was going to be in Hollywood and was going to make it big and be in movies and all this kind of stuff. And he was the guy who discovered me.” Turns out, Mario was also close with the same guy, and the rest is Hollywood history! You can watch Jay in the “Magnum P.I.” finale, which airs tomorrow night at 9pm on CBS.
