Erik Estrada, best known as one half of the “CHiPs” duo back in the day, has been staying busy in recent years as an infomerical pitchman and reality television participant. According to his Web site it looks like he is also hawking Butterfingers candy bars.
He’s here in Atlanta right now, filming what’s been described to Buzz as “a B-movie.”
Since posting this earlier today we’ve since heard that this project is called “Hillbilly Highway,” but haven’t been able to shake loose any details. (Thanks to the blog responders and e-mailers for this detail!)
We’re trying to figure out what the deal is, but for now please enjoy these hilarious photos.
Estrada was filming Wednesday at The Pool Hall in Buckhead.
These photos come to us courtesy of Joel Darby, a partner at The Fur Bus, which is sort of fitting, given the shaggy stuff stuck to Estrada’s face.
Anyone know more about “Hillbilly Highway?” Who knows, maybe they will have a screening of it here to celebrate when it is ready to roll. Although, somehow we’re thinking this has that “straight-to-DVD” feel to it..
