Burt Reynolds, Willie Nelson Visit Hazzard County

The Duke family reunion is coming together. The Hollywood Reporter says Burt Reynolds and Willie Nelson are negotiating to join "The Dukes of Hazzard" movie. If they sign, Reynolds would play corrupt sheriff Boss Hogg and Nelson would portray wizened Duke boy Uncle Jessie.

The other major players have already been cast: Johnny Knoxville will play Luke Duke; Seann William Scott will play Bo Duke; and Jessica Simpson will make a run for the Oscar as Daisy Duke.

In other "Dukes" news, Variety says the film will be set in the present day and the General Lee will likely be the same 1969 Dodge Charger featured in the show (it damn well better be -- I don't want to see the "Audi General Lee").

Additional developments will be chronicled on our "Dukes of Hazzard" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
