"Fez" Joins the California Highway Patrol

by | December 8, 2005 | Comments

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wilmer "Fez" Valderrama is set to star in the big-screen adaptation of the 70’s cop show "Chips." Whether or not this project will be any better than the big-screen adaptation of the 80’s car-fest "The Dukes of Hazzard" is anyobdy’s guess.

"Wilmer Valderrama will star as motorcycle cop Ponch in Warner Bros. Pictures’ big-screen version of "CHiPs." The studio has just acquired the rights for the TV series and has set Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgove to adapt. Erik Estrada famously originated the Ponch role in "CHiPs," which ran on NBC in the late 1970s and followed the adventures of California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers Francis "Ponch" Poncherello and Jon Baker. Larry Wilcox played Baker. The show had a serious macho tone, but over the years has achieved a cheesy, cult status. Sources say the project was built around the involvement of Valderrama, best known as Fez on "That ’70s Show.""
