Dax Shepard Is Making a CHiPs Movie
The Parenthood star will play straight-laced Officer Jon Baker in the role originated by Larry Wilcox on the NBC series, which ran from 1977 to 1983. Michael Pena is set to play Jon's trouble-prone partner, Frank "Ponch" Poncherello, first played by Erik Estrada.
Warner Bros. originally tried to develop a CHiPS movie a few years back with Wilmer Valderrama, who visited an executive's office wearing the tight-fitting uniform and sold the idea simply by saying, "Funny, right?" This new adaptation will reportedly be more of a Lethal Weapon action film than a comedy.
