Village People Cop -- 'Idol' Considering Me as Judge!!

8/4/2010 10:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who played the original cop in the Village People claims he recently had a meeting with "American Idol" execs ... who told him that he's a "dark horse candidate" to be a judge on the show!

Victor Willis tells TMZ he'd be the "best choice" to replace Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell because he was "the original idol judge for the selection of the Village People talent" back in 1977.

As we previously reported, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are slated to take the judges table once their contracts are worked out -- but just in case it doesn't work out with them, Willis claims, "I reminded the [American Idol] representative that I was a judge for the selection of talent for the most iconic group of characters of all time."

He added, "The show’s response was that they’re very much aware of this and that I’m considered a serious dark horse candidate."

So we gotta ask ...

Sandy... How many times has Paul McCartney been arrested? How many times has Jennifer Lopez been arrested (with P. Diddy)? How many times has Steven Tyler been arrested (for drugs)? How many times has Robert Downey, Jr. been arrested (and how how much time did Downey spend in prison)? In fact, how many times has Willie Nelson been arrested? Elvis Presley did drugs too. Mic Jagger was arrested for drugs in the US and London several times. Ozzy Osborne is a long time drug addict, Steven Tyler and Brit Michaels still are addicts. Finally, we see how silly you really are Sandy!

Victor needs to be judged for all the rotten ass things he did to many people, especially me. He begged, borrowed,and stole from me and swindled my car away from me. He promised to replace my car with a little convertible as he put it. always any money he borrows or steals is always just a little unimportant thing because he believes that only his agenda is worthy . He is a lier and a thief. He looks like a cow since he got married and off of drugs. He belongs in jail for all the money he stole and borrowed from others as well in San Francisco. He belongs behind bars if he could even fit in a cell. and that is the real truth.
