Valderrama whos rumored to be playing Francis Ponch Poncherello in a big screen version of CHiPs in 2009 says before he hit it big in showbiz, he was driving to auditions with his dad, hoping to be discovered.
Says Valderrama: When we moved from Venezuela to Los Angeles, I told my dad I thought I could make money from acting. We gathered some money for headshots and drove all over town to every audition we could find. I went to callbacks I wasnt even called in for and showed up to auditions uninvited anything to catch that break!
Valderramas lucky streak came when he scored the part of Fez in That 70s Show, and the rest is rags- to-riches history.
Valderrama adds, That 70s Show was the biggest break my family ever had, and it lasted eight years. My parents came to America for a better life and it has been amazing. Theyve been my biggest fans and that makes me want to keep working my butt off!
