Jessica Simpson Beats Spears To Daisy Duke Role

Britney Spears's hopes of landing the role of Daisy Duke in the forthcoming movie version of the 'Dukes of Hazzard' have been dashed-after bosses handed it to Jessica Simpson.

While star Spears had expressed interest in playing the sexy character from the '70s TV show, singer Simpson has been chosen as the blonde who will fill the extra short shorts of original Daisy Duke Catherine Bach.

Simpson's manager father Joe, 'She is really excited.' Simpson herself adds, 'I wanna wear those shorts so bad.'

The film about three redneck cousins, two corrupt public officials and a souped up Dodger Charger car, begins production this summer.

I really don't understand the Jessica Simpson thing. She has a really masculine looking face and ignorance and stupidity always strikes me as hideous.

Britney Spears' last best hope of being taken seriously was to appear as Daisy Duke. Alas, now she will never be considered for an Oscar-calibre role!

They're looking to cast Anthony Anderson as Boss Hogg. I have never seen him in anything, so I can't comment on his acting skills, but a black Boss Hogg just doesn't work for me somehow.

I like blonde bimbo's as much as the next guy, but neither of these gals is worthy to don the frayed shorts of the original Daisy!

Not as badly as I want you to wear those shorts.

Also, Catherine Bach was a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of things, but as Daisy she was not a dumb bimbo (well, ok, taking sharp corners in a CJ-5 as fast as she drove was not a Mensa-caliber move, but still...)

The original wasn't blonde and I don't recall the shorts being frayed.

There was one recurring black character on the show. Sherrif Little, from chickasaw county. He was the only LEO that the Dukes had any respect for, and was a hard-a$$ed mofo to boot. They never messed with him.

I know, Anthony Anderson is funny. He's one of the sons in Me, Myself and Irene.

But Boss Hog is supposed to be a big fat OLD white cracker. Hollywood people are F**ing morons. They probably think it would be cool to have a black Hogg. This movie will be about as good as Scooby Doo.

There is thing called hair dye. Perhaps you've never heard of it. It is used to alter the color of hair.

What?? There's no hottie brunettes around, so we need to spruce up a blonde bimbette to fill the role??

Lucille Ball made millions and millions playing a dumb redhead. The Hollywood crowd was shocked when she took over Desilu productions and was a tough, smart business
manager.

Didn't read the article. The title was enough to warrant a gut shot. In years past, no one would have posted this trash on FR and if they did, it would have been pulled. Juvenile toilet crap from Hollyweird.

not to get to deep on the Dukes of Hazzard but I was wondering about something the other day. Remember in the 70's there was a bunch of "redneck" movies made? It was during the time of the Dukes of Hazzard when you also had trucker movies, Smokey and the Bandit, Country/Western music was hot and you had a lot of movies on that theme and other media heavily invested in "Middle America". It seemed to be a backlash at the elitism the preceded it and the emphasis on "metro" culture. I suspect the reason this genre became so popular was because people were fed up with the 60's counter culture.

In light of the current elistis and "metrosexual" culture/media it seems we should be due for another "backlash" to tip the balance again. Since you would expect the movies and so forth to come after the movement started I wonder if we are just entering another phase where the focus becomes based more on traditional values, regular people, and the midwest. In light of gay marriage, elistis hollywood types, liberal media bias, and a continual focus on California and the east coast by the media we may be seeing a reversal pretty soon, which by the way is good news for a Texas, rough and tumble, butt kicker running against a femmy, metrosexual, Mass. liberal.

The lady from the Dukes of Hazzard is Catherine Bach. Don't know about her heritage. Just looked up Barbara Bach who is married to Ringo Starr at Imdb.com--they said she is also known as Barbara Goldbach.
