    Good points, Brad. I just thought of John Goodman who would make a good Boss Hogg. [​IMG]

    I finished off the Deputy Enos roster by adding Jeff Daniels and Rick Moranis. Also finished off the Bo Duke roster by adding Russell Crowe and Matthew McConaughey.

    I was wondering if Jack Black could pull off the Luke sliding across The General Lee hood move, and if he can I would like to see him do it.

    Bo Duke should be a stupid man in an obvious but endearing way. Jake Busey can convey stupid, but I've never seen him pull off endearing. Seann William Scott might be able to pull it off. Take his character from Evolution and hick him up a little bit and he has a chance.

    Bill Murray is just too old for Cooter. He's also not at all Southern, and I really don't want to see him try to be. Will Sasso has played the friendly, good-ol' boy roles before (Best In Show). He'd have to cut back on some of the idiot manchild nuances that he usually brings to the role, but he can assume the role of Cooter without being a distraction. He's also lost quite a bit of weight recently, so he could be believable in a bar fight at the Boar's Nest.

    Neither Rodney Dangerfield nor Anthony Hopkins are right for Boss Hogg. Rodney's got that New York accent and Hopkins wouldn't look right as the flustered, bewildered, clueless bigwig.

    So, Scott, Sasso, abstain.

    I agree. Unfortunately, it's too late to add him to the roster. [​IMG]

    Hmmmm... Fred Ward is a maybe, but Ray Liotta is a no frickin' way. Even with the top of his skull removed he isn't incompetent enough to portray Roscoe P. Coltrane.

    Uhhh... Randy Quaid could probably be cast somewhere, but not as Enos. Enos has a level of effeteness that Randy does not possess. Tom Hanks is a serious no. What are you trying to do to the budget of this picture?

    Wilford Brimley could work, but I'd need the phrase "food boner in my Bermuda shorts" to appear in the script somewhere. [​IMG] I like Robert Duvall too much to saddle him with this movie.

    So, Ward, abstain, Brimley.

    I'm definitely putting way too much thought into this. [​IMG]
