Wilmer Valderrama to Star in "CHiPs"

That's right, not only are the remaking a 70's show "CHiPs" as a film but also "That 70's Show" ensemble memeber Wilmer Valderrama will play Ponch. At least that's what Hollywood Reporter says, personally I hope they are playing a joke on us all.

Valderrama will be taking the role carved in everyone's pop culture consciousness by Erik Estrada. It's a no win for him. If he does well, he'll just be typecast playing gimmicky characters having something to do with the 70's. Either that or he'll fail, and then his career will be ruined by the sentence "Wilmer Valderrama does live up to the performance of Erik Estrada." --Terrence Ryan
