Erik Estrada has pretty much done it all.
After getting his break in a Christian film, "The Cross and the Switchblade," that starred Pat Boone, he went on to become chick magnet Frank "Ponch" Poncherello on motorcycle-cop drama "CHiPs." Since then, he's done everything from telenovelas to reality TV ("The Surreal Life") to guest shots on everything from "My Name Is Earl" to "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."
After becoming a genuine police officer in Indiana some years ago, he's focused more on law enforcement, and stopping Internet predators in particular -- but on occasion, Estrada still takes on an acting project. His next one, "Chupacabra vs. the Alamo," hits the Syfy Channel on March 23. As DEA agent Carlos Seguin, Estrada must face off against a murderous pack of chupacabras -- the mythical "goat-suckers" who drain animals (and sometimes humans) of their blood -- while holed up in the Alamo, where his legendary ancestor Juan Seguin fought with distinction.
