Jessica Simpson will again enjoy the spotlight both in a new video and on the big screen in the role of Daisy Duke, in a remake of the 1979-85 hit television series Jaylewis The Dukes of Hazzard.
The new Duke’s of Hazzard movie features Jessica Simpson in addition to other well-known celebrities such as Willie Nelson as the lovable Uncle Jessie, and the corrupt Hazard County Commissioner Bogg Hogg who is played by the versatile Burt Reynolds.
