Kristen Bell gets her motor running and joins the cast of CHiPs

09.18.2015

Adding Kristen Bell to your cast never sounds like a bad idea, so kudos to the big screen treatment of CHiPs, which has managed to secure the VERONICA MARS star for a little piece of their motorcycle cop world... sorry, highway patrol to be exact.

While details of her role haven't escaped custody yet, Bell is joining her husband Dax Shepard on the film, as he'll be both directing and starring in it. Shepard will be playing the big screen version of Jon Baker alongside Michael Pena who will be walking in the shoes of Erik Estrada as Ponch. Vincent D'Onofrio, Adam Brody and Rosa Salazar round out the rest of the topline cast for now.

CHiPS has been in development for going on 10 years now, with Wilmer Valderrama attached, but that version never went anywhere. Shepard looks to have things going in a forward direction, so we'll have to keep an eye out and see if this might be one of those rare occasions when a TV show is capably and entertainly transitioned into a feature film.

I only know CHiPs by reputation, but based on Shepard's love-letter to '70s road movies with Hit and Run, my love of buddy cop movies, and the ace cast, I'm feeling pretty optimistic here.

I loved the series when I was a little kid. I'd say Michael Pena is a better choice than Valderrama, so I'm glad that version didn't get to happen. But I'm always wary whenever an old TV show gets a movie reboot., because it seems that the only way for them to work is to turn them into action comedies. Heck, there were even two Indonesian CHiPs ripoff/parody movies back in the '80s.

The more Kristen Bell the better. I just wish she would finally do a nude scene.

Really? She is cute but you've got to get out more. She's a mom now. It'll never happen.
