Was that philipino ex-president joeseph estrada really the star of sum 70's cop show (CHIPS) ?
how did he become a prez from just being some actor?
- Anonymous1 decade agoBest Answer
No he is not.
The actor who starred in the 70s TV series, CHIPS is Erik Estrada.
And please don't underestimate actors, the former president of a superpower country, the United States is a former actor himself (in fact he is classified as a mere B-actor in Hollywood), the late Ronald Reagan.

Maybe the better question is, "how did Joseph Estrada go from being president to receiving a life in prison term yesterday in the Philipino courts?" Now if Eric Estrada had half the acting talent that Joseph had (note: he was good at schmoozing the populace), he might have had a career beyond CHIPs. But, Erik's acting was all in his choppers: His super white teeth and that huge smile. Erik is now selling real estate on late nite tv infomercials.

joseph estrada and eric estrada are not the same person. they are not even related. but, he was an action star before he became the President. I think Filipinos vote for who are popular rather than who is politically better. there are a lot of celebrities who turned into politicians.

ERIC Estrada was on chips, and no, they are not the same person
