Bell, who also appeared in Shepard’s previous directorial effort, the 2012 action comedy Hit and Run, isn’t the only performer lending CHIPs some extra star-wattage. The movie also features cameos from Saturday Night Live favorite, Maya Rudolph, and Erik Estrada, who become a pop culture icon for his role as Frank “Ponch” Poncherello on the late ’70s/early ’80s TV series that inspired the movie.
Stars say action-packed comedy's stunts kept explosives experts busy: “The day where you actually say, ‘Fire in the hole, let ‘er rip,’ is exhilarating."
The “View” hosts got into the juicy stuff, when they asked who's more likely to send nudes, and who's more likely to Netflix cheat.
CHIPS was written and directed by its co-star, Dax Shepard, an actor with a puckish off-center charisma I’ve always enjoyed. Shepard has a distinctive fugly appeal — he’s tall and loose-limbed, with the preening confidence of a star, and with eccentric features that are just this side of handsome. In CHIPS, he plays Jon Baker, a former competitive motorcycle rider whose beaten-up body is a scarred welter of aches and pains (he pops opiates like candy), but he’s inept at everything except riding that chopper.

Michael Peña visited Ellen on Wednesday and revealed the story behind a graphic scene in his new movie CHiPs. In the scene, Peña’s character lifts Dax Shepard’s character into the air, but the towel covering him is ripped off. Shortly after, Peña’s head is thrust into Shepard’s naked lap.
Actors Dax Shepard and Michael Peña stopped by Canadian morning show Breakfast Television to talk about their new movie, "CHiPs." Shepard is the writer, director, and star of the film, which also co-stars his wife, Kristen Bell.
Dax Shepard was in his happy place on the set of CHIPS. The actor-writer-director was three days away from wrapping the $25 million action-comedy, and he sat in his trailer recalling the many times he’d gotten to blow stuff up over the course of the film’s 45-day shoot. With each anecdote, Shepard grew more and more excited, sounding like he’s liable to break into a Michael Bay impression at any moment.
From 1977 to 1983, the fictional highways of California were patrolled by motorcycle cops Ponch and Baker on the campy action series CHiPs. Writer-director Dax Shepard wants us all to hit the road again later this month with a big-screen adaptation starring himself and Michael Peña as the tight-pants-wearing duo. Audiences just got a new red-band trailer to see just how raunchy this ride will be. Watch it above.
