The possible return of Sledge Hammer!

Original creator Alan Spencer is in talks to possibly bring back his 1980's titular trigger happy cop, and I for one would love to see it. What I can't make out from the article is if he's planning on bringing back David Rasche as the .45 Magnum loving Sledge, because that would be awesome. From the linked article (bold mine):

Spencer now envisions the title character being called back to active duty after many years away, a trigger-happy lawman thrust into the changed world of forensic crime-solving and increased scrutiny of police. 

Rasche is in his seventies now so I'm not sure if it would work, but I'd love to see him back in shoot first, ask questions later action. If not, re-casting would be crucial but I think it could be done, especially with Spencer in charge.

The article provides a clip from the pilot episode. Here's a few more awesome Sledge Hammer! moments:

And of course, that terrific opening:
