Vin Diesel Is the New Kojak

I don't know how many of you even remember the great fictional detective Theo Kojak, but prepare yourselves because he is coming back to the big screen! Vin Diesel will be starring in the role that Telly Savalas made famous on television. 


Ving Rhames also played the part in a short-lived reboot in 2005.  Hopefully, this new movie will be more successful.


Diesel will also produce the new Kojak film, so hopefully it will keep all the elements that made the original so much fun -- the lightheartedness of the character along with the tough-guy edge.  I don't want them to turn this into a spoof comedy!

Let's hope Diesel gets it right.  "Who loves ya, baby?"
