Interview: Erik Estrada (Planes Fire & Rescue, CHiPs)

ErikEstrada

I recently had a chance to speak with television legend Erik Estrada, who plays Nick “Loopin” Lopez in Disney’s new Planes: Fire & Rescue. We had a terrific conversation about his character, who is heavily inspired by Erik’s character of Frank “Ponch” Poncharello from the hit TV series CHiPs.

Here, we talk about being the voice of a helicopter, action figures, recording voice overs, and — of course — CHiPs! You can hear the entirety of the interview below!
