Dukes Star Jones Wants A Tv Return To Hazzard

Former DUKES OF HAZZARD star BEN JONES is hoping the upcoming movie adaptation of the TV show is a big hit because he wants to bring the series back.

The actor-turned-Georgia politician, who played mechanic COOTER on the show, has been critical about the movie, which stars JESSICA SIMPSON and JOHNNY KNOXVILLE, because it isn't as family friendly as the original TV series, but he hopes it will prompt TV bosses to bring the cast back.

He says, "I keep pitching the idea of a show called DUKES: THE NEXT GENERATION, with the original cast and some new kids."

Jones stages a Dukes of Hazzard convention annually at his memorabilia store in Gatlingburg, Tennessee and insists the show remains a big success.

He says, "People still love Hazzard County."
