Chips Star Estrada Mentors Valderrama

WILMER VALDERRAMA is being coached on how to ride a motorcycle by former CHiPS star ERIK ESTRADA as he prepares for his part in the upcoming big screen version of the TV classic. Estrada played FRANK 'PONCH' PONCHERELLO during the motorcycle cop show's five-year run between 1977 and 1982, and his character is now being brought back to life by Valderrama. THAT '70S SHOW star Valderrama says, "Erik loves the fact that I'm doing the movie. He said, 'I couldn't ever imagine anybody else playing me but you.' "He's been teaching me all these motorcycle skills and things. "It's going to be a lot of fun but like Erik's show it will have a serious side, some great action and a lot of heart."
