Ice Cube to star in “Welcome Back Kotter” movie

LOS ANGELES (AP)—“Welcome Back Kotter” is being made into a movie, with Ice Cube taking over for Gabe Kaplan in the starring role.

  1. Just as strange, on the same page was mention of Jennifer Lopez being offered the role of Sue Ellen in “Dallas” movie.

    Huh?

  2. As if the cinematic “Starsky and Hutch” remake wasn’t crappy enough, now we get this? Enough with the film remakes of shows that were mediocre to begin with!

  3. I’m trying to picture Ice Cube doing a Groucho impression.
    I’m failing. rolleyes
    Maybe he’ll do Richard Pryor impressions.
