ABC may not have picked up pop tart Jessica Simpson’s sitcom, which had her playing a reporter for an ‘Entertainment Tonight’ type show, but the casting news isn’t all bad for the blonde bombshell. Producers of the big screen version of 70’s TV staple ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ have chosen Simpson to fill the cut-offs made famous by Catherine Bach way back when. The news comes as something as a surprise since another star better known for her rack than her singing, Britney Spears had been lobbying long and hard for the role. No doubt Simpson’s flawless body and increased profile from her MTV series ‘Newlyweds’ helped her land the role. Jessica, reportedly told Star magazine, “I wanna wear those shorts so bad!” Yeah, but not half as much as we want to see it. The Dukes of Hazzard showing this summer.
