    That's actually a really smart re-casting.

    Kojak is a tiny bit before my time (born in '79), but even I'm wary of Vin Diesel playing a character that was once Telly Savalas'.

    Ving Rhames did a decent Kojak when USA had it on TV

    I think he can handle the role.

    Likewise I've never seen Kojak, but I can see the logic behind this.

    Is Hollywood starting up the lets make a movie out of an old tv show thing again? I see there's already The Man from U.N.C.L.E on the way.

    I've seen Kojak, and Vin is a good fit even beyond looks. He could definitely do the part. Why is another question. Is anyone dying for a Kojak remake?

    But I'm not a big Purvis & Wade fan.
