Jessica Simpson Is Daisy Dukes

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Pop star Jessica Simpson has been cast as Daisy Duke in the big-screen remake of "The Dukes of Hazzard," a project that essentially marks her feature film debut.

Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville already had been cast as Bo and Luke Duke, respectively, in the Warner Bros. project. Jay Chandrasekhar is directing. A start date has not yet been set.

The series, which ran on CBS from 1979 to 1985, followed the weekly adventures of southern cousins Bo and Luke -- "just two good ol' boys, never meaning no harm," according to the Waylon Jennings theme song -- who raised hell driving their souped-up Dodge Charger, the General Lee, in fictional Hazzard County. They, along with their cousin Daisy and Uncle Jesse, staged running battles with the corrupt authorities, Boss Hogg and Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane.

So they've got a Jackass, Stifler, and now a platymapus. You'd think there'd be a joke in that trio (their respective acting careers are already jokes), but I'm just not seeing it...

Jay Chandrasekhar directed Supertroopers, which was actually far funnier than it had any right to be. At least the casting shows that they have no intention of taking themselves seriously.

If the role of Boss Hogg is still open perhaps Al Gore should submit his resume. He needs a job, and people laugh at him already, which can only help the movie.

PS. I hope they cast an orange Toyota Prius ( ...with Hybrid Synergy Drive«) with a National Liberation Front (Vietcong) on its roof as the General Van Tien Dung Lee. It would be so timely!

Jon:

Maybe I'll watch it on DVD, and just mute it when she opens her mouth. Casting Knoxville in that is a dumb idea, though. He couldn't even act in MIB2, which wasn't exactly Shakespeare...

Re: Sergeant America

Heh. I can see Roscoe chasing the General Van Le atop a M113 (festooned with obnoxious imperialist American flags, natch), the Duke boys and Roscoe redlining their machines to the max.

Wonder what a chase scene would like at about 12 mph?

If the General Lee has any flags on it they probably won't be confederate flags.

As for Simpson, all she needs is a few sticks of dynamite and she'd be Tanya Tucker.

"Dipstick" is good! "Disstick?"

OBTW, one does need some mammaries for Daisy and yes; I'd jest' replace her with Tanya!

She was better looking a few years ago. Her face has grown too chiseled-looking... almost mannish.

Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke looked pretty and wholesome.

Jessica Simpson, on the other hand, is dressed up like a cheap L.A. hooker.

I hope it bombs.

CrzBadboy:

Britney Looks better in some Daisy Dukes but I think its cuz her stomach is getting flabby they didn't cast her. Britney is starting to look like 100% trailer trash.. she could of done the job better than Jessica, If J.Simpson plays Daisy for 1.) she gotta get rid of the blonde hair. and learn to talk country. 2.) Stifler for one of the guys WTF instead of being serious he's going to be a total dumbass. 3.) if they go this much on it they should at least cast Burt Reynolds as Boss Hog. Now that would be funny.

The Cast should of been.
Ashton Khucher, Paul Walker, Burt Reynolds, and Jessica Alba as Daisy Duke.and get Adam Sandler for Rosco. and guess star Willie Nelson as Uncle Jesse

NOW THAT WOULD BE A GOOD FUNNY MOVIE. Then it would be worth watching.

I loved catherine bach as daisy duke and had such a crush on her. usually they can't get anyone as goodlooking in these remakes of old series example charlie's angels but i have to say jessica simpson is about the prettiest thing on the planet and her figure is so curvey and she will more than fill Catherine's bra top i don't doubt...if the strap doesn't snap off and i think she'll have an inch or two free at the waist of the shorts because she has the tinniest waist i've every seen so good for you jessica and its great to see more of you and your up there with the brigit bardots and sophie lorens and raquel welshs in face and figure and your here to stay
