what are they thinking?

Ok I admit it, I grew up watching the Dukes of Hazzard I had a huge crush on Bo and Luke Duke I wanted to drive the General Lee and I thought Daisy must have had a gawd awful wedgie in them shorts. But Tom Wopat and John Schnieder were Luke and Bo. And Catherine Bach was Daisy and those are some heavy cowboy boots and hot pants to fill.

So when I found out they were remaking the show into a feature film at I thought cool, it will be all nostalgic and what not. But then I found out who was cast.

So there are two versions being made: a TV version and a big screen version. And the casts are atrocious. For the Film version they are casting a Jackass and Stifler, Johnny Knoxville and Sean William Scott. Those two I can buy though Knoxville isn't known for playing clever guys like Luke was OK I will still buy it. But their choice for Daisy is Jessica Simpson, I don't know if she can simultaniously wear pumps drive a jeep and flirt without tripping over herself. And I certainly don't see her holding her own in a bar fight like Daisy is so known to do.

But that is nothing compared with the TV version. This time they cast Ashton Kutcher and Paul Walker. Now Paul Walker is way believable. Kutcher, not so much. and their Daisy, well for her they are talking about Britney Spears! EEWWW She is no Daisy Duke, besides they would have to write in a dance sequence or something and that would just ruin it.

It makes you wonder who the heck these casting Directors are. Anyway again I apologize for the ridiculous things I choose to rant about. I am just a big ol' dork and I ain't afraid to admit it!
