Cavallari To Take Over Simpson's Role
US reality TV star KRISTIN CAVALLARI is set to take over the role of DAISY DUKE from her rumoured love rival JESSICA SIMPSON in the next DUKES OF HAZZARD movie. Cavallari was rumoured to be dating Simpson's estranged husband NICK LACHEY earlier this year (06), and now she's hoping to pick up one of the pop star's cast-off movie roles. The film's producer BILL GERBER, is working on a prequel and is desperate to cast Cavallari in the role, which marked Simpson's film debut. He explains, "She's at the top of the list. I like her innocence and her beauty. "It's a prequel, like BATMAN. We're going for a whole new cast."
