Would you take love advice from Wilmer Valderrama??

That 70s Show veteran Wilmer Valderrama has returned from his lengthy sitcom hiatus to play Selena Gomez’s uncle for an episode of Wizards of Waverly Place most likely airing this summer, and feels as protective of his young co-star as if she were actually part of his family!

“I met Selena many years ago when she was about to launch the show, and when [Wizard producers] told me the role was on Selena’s show, I said ‘of course!’” Wilmer told us March 10 at the MALDEF and VotoLatino Multimedia Censius 2010 Campaign Launch in Los Angeles, Calif.

Wilmer, 30, and Selena, 17, have grown extremely close over the years. “I became Selena’s honorary older brother and it’s been really great, I keep in touch with the kids – they call me Uncle Ernesto!”

However, duties as honorary older bro come with certain restrictions. “I don’t give Selena any relationship advice,” Wilmer says sagely, “but watch out; [boys] – Selena is a force to be reckoned with!”

We can’t wait to see what the young Disney starlet does next! Would YOU want Wilmer Valderrama to be your big bro?
