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…
