Vin Diesel is set to revive 1970s police legend Kojak for a new TV series.

The xXx action hero, 45, has landed the lead role as the New York murder detective, the Daily Star reported.

Kojak was orginally played by the late shaven-headed actor Telly Savalas.

He starred as the lollipop-loving cop who was a hit with the ladies and had the catchphrase: "Who loves ya baby"
