The good news is that Erik Estrada has finally found some work. The bad news is that it’s in a movie being filmed at Liberty University, which has the folks at Liberty terribly excited to have a genuine Hollywood “star” — albeit one who couldn’t even get into the Surreal Life house –on campus.
Lynchburg, Va., has become the epicenter for the upcoming faith-based film, Finding Faith, and Liberty University is right at the heart of the project.
Finding Faith aims to educate families on the importance of Internet safety through a powerful drama based on the real-life story of a girl who was abducted after falling prey to a skillful online predator. It stars Erik Estrada, a Hollywood legend and activist best known for his role on the 1970s and ’80s television series CHiPS. The film is set to release in early 2013 after a nationwide screening tour later this year.
Yeah, Estrada is a “legend” — in the sense that there are mythical stories about his career in the distant past. How amusing.
