15847, LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - Saturday June 9 2007. Wilmer Valderrama, host and producer of the MTV series "Yo Mamma", shows off his bling as he hosts a party in Pure nightclub, Las Vegas. The former "That 70's Show" star whipped the crowd into a frenzy as he took to the mic and danced whilst celebrating the launch of the third series of "Yo Momma". Guests were supposed to have included Nicky Hilton, but the younger Hilton sister was nowhere to be seen following her older sister, Paris's, dramatic week in which she went to jail, was released and was then returned to prison to serve out her 45-day sentence for probabtion violation.

Wilmer Valderrama has had quite a run. Born in the US, Wilmer’s family later moved to Venezuela and then moved back to the US when he was 13 years old.

When he got back, he didn’t know a lick of English and spoke with an accent thicker then Charo. What does a young kid in this situation do?

Become and actor and get rich of course….

Within 5 years, this non-English speaker was:

  1. On a hit TV show
  2. Rich…and
  3. Dating Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore and Jennifer Love Hewitt

This non-English speaker has had more success in his first 5 years then Tom Vu did selling infomercial real estate in the 90’s !!

Luckily for him, the character he portrayed on “That 70’s Show” was a foreign exchange student with a very thick accent. Talk about luck!

(Anyone making a movie need a chubby Latino with male pattern baldness????)

Since then, Wilmer has parlayed his success into 3 restaurants and a TV show on MTV.

So what’s next for a mid-20’s Latino heart-throb with a great head of hair and nearly no noticeable accent AND who also has 70’s TV show experience?

DUH! Hit the big screen and portray a mid-20’s Latino heart-throb from the 70’s with a great head of hair and no noticable accent!!

Thats right! Young Wilmer is scheduled to hit the big screen as a 70’s latino icon Francis “Ponch” Poncerello in the upcoming re-make of CHiPS.

Some guys have all the luck…

Anyhoo, looks like the spoils of Hollywood has infact made it to Wilmer’s wrist. Seen here in a night club Wilmer is photographed wearing a Breitling Navitimer – that – doesn’t quite fit him correctly. I wonder is he knows that theses watches are meant to be sized to the individual.
