Country legend Willie Nelson is returning to Hazzard County to play UNCLE JESSE in the Dukes Of Hazzard prequel.
Nelson will portray the grizzled relative of BO and LUKE DUKE in California, where the second film is being shot over the summer (06).
He says, "For the next three weeks, I'll be Uncle Jesse, so I'm looking forward to that."
The movie, which takes place before the last film, is not expected to feature Jessica Simpson, Johnny Knoxville or any of the other stars from last year's (05) film. It is expected to go directly to DVD.
