Entertainment's Orange Carpet Reporter for the 2010 Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards. He also appeared as the Red Carpet Correspondent for the star-studded Nickelodeon Mega-Music Fest special.

Since the premiere of Modern Family, Rodriguez has garnered widespread attention for his work as Manny Delgado.
