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.
I watched Dukes of Hazzard for the cars....
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!
ping for DD photos later
This story has zero relevence and belongs in the crapper.
How about some pictures so we can compare for ourselves!?
Simpson herself adds, 'I wanna wear those shorts so bad.'
Not as badly as I want you to wear those shorts.
She's apparently a lot smarter than most believe. How many
millions of $$$$$ have you accumulated?
I watched it for the guys.
Please they are going to screw up this movies majorly.
1) How can they drive the Genral Lee around with that flag? Im sure they will have it painted completly different. Problably purple.
2) For the life of me, I cant remember one black guy on that show. They will problably make the Shriff Chinese, the mayor black, the deputies hispanic...
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.
General Lee Ping!
