    I loved the old show, not sure Vin can pull the role off, Telly Savalas had so much charisma.

    Its too bad MCD is dead because he could do a great Kojack. Who Loves ya Baby would be classic from his mouth.

    Lets face it the only real actor suited for Kojack would be Willis.

    Only In The Fast Movies and Riddick I guess. He can't seem to carry or make a new good movie.

    Is Kojak? :oldrazz:

    Sounds like the bland leading the bland.

    I will ofcourse check this out at some point but movies have to be very appealing to go on the theatrical list.

    Vin Diesel has the bald look for the role, however I think he severely lacks the charisma for the role in my opinion. :o

    If he plays Kojak like he played Jackie DiNorscio in Find Me Guilty, then yes, he does have the charisma for the role.

    The guy's last film made $620 million and his next one is getting an IMAX release, plus Fast 6 on the way. I think he's doing fine.

    He's doing great if you look at Fast and Furious. I just meant he's a good actor and deserves better roles.

    Strangely I don't see romantic comedies in Vin's future.

    If they ever make another Grudge movie, then I want to see Vin Diesel take on Kayako.

    Such a bizarre cinematic reboot to such a episodic TV show.

    It would be like getting Helen Mirren to do a film version of 'Murder, She Wrote".

    Kojak and Murder, She Wrote were big here in France.
    At least it is not as lame as a Power Ranger/Voltron movie.

    But that's comparing procedural shows vs. bombastic children shows. Different.

    The show are differents but it is still the same thing, "they" want to bring to the big screen old and irrelevent TV Shows.
