    Daisy Duke: Veronica Zemanova (If you wanna see what she looks like, do a Google search...but only you're over 18!)

    ...or Eliza Dushku with a push-up bra.

    Uncle Jesse Duke: John Ritter

    Jefferson Davis 'Boss' Hogg: Charles Laughton, who unfortunately is dead. So howzabout Charles Durning?

    Cooter Davenport: Henry Thomas

    Deputy Enos Strate: Dylan Baker

    Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane: Bill Paxton

    Luke Duke: Jack Black

    Bo Duke: Seann William Scott

    Cool Cameo: The cast of Hee-Haw

    Well all my picks are already in, but I'd sure like to throw out another "oooh yeah, she'd be good" for one Ms. Eliza Dushku. And just for the record, Jennifer Lopez was not my pick either!

    Here's my serious attempt to cast it, although I will go on record saying that this film is a "bad idea". [​IMG]

    Luke Duke............Josh Hartnett
    Bo Duke..............Eric Christian Olsen
    Daisy Duke...........Jessica Biel
    Uncle Jesse..........Paul Dooley
    Boss Hogg............Brian Cox
    Roscoe P. Coltrane...Dwight Yoakam
    Enos Strate..........John Michael Higgins
    Cooter Davenport.....Brent Briscoe or Will Sasso
    Cool Cameo...........William Daniels as the voice of the General Lee 2000 Gordon Jump as Mr. Horton the bicycle shop owner with the photography hobby. (edited after I saw you've already got a Knight Rider reference)

    Jennifer Lopez?! Ugh, no way!

    Haha Steve, you are indeed correct! There are many actresses I'd love to see portray Daisy, but of course, my beloved Jennifer Connelly is my main choice. I have to say that the already mentioned Eliza would be a great choice as well.


    Daisy Duke: Jennifer Connelly

    Uncle Jesse duke: Ian McKellan

    Jefferson Davis 'Boss' Hogg: Pat Hingle (his role in MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE is what really solidified it in my eyes)

    Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane: Ray Liotta

    And no Dukes film would be complete without "Ol' Velvet Ears", Flash the basset hound!

    I'll have to think about the other ones. I absolutely love this show, easily one of my favorite TV series ever. I'm dying for DVD sets.

    Hey, you know how long it's been since I've seen Different Strokes? [​IMG]

    Added Jake Busey to the Bo Duke roster, Rodney Dangerfield to the Boss Hogg roster, and The Beverly Hillbillies to the Cool Cameo category.

    Okay, we need to fill one more slot on the Daisy Duke, Boss Hogg, Luke Duke, Sheriff Rosco, and Cool Cameo rosters, two slots on the Cooter roster, and three slots on the Deputy Enos and Bo Duke rosters.

    Chucky: great picks!

    I added Steve Zahn (Out of Sight) to the Cooter roster. We just need to fill two slots on the Bo Duke and Deputy Enos rosters. If you can think of someone, post 'em! [​IMG]

    I'm going to go ahead and start this puppy. First matchups will be up in a minute!

    Daisy Duke

    Shania Twain vs. Sheryl Crow
    Are you kidding me? Sheryl Crow by a million miles and three inches. And yes, she was my pick. And no matter what Steve says, Lopez was not my pick. I think he's ashamed to like her since she's not French.

    Luke Duke

    Jack Black vs. Bruce Campbell
    Both are awesome in my world, it just depends on what kind of awesome I'm looking for. Since I don't need any advice on love or a really good laugh, I'm going with Bruce Campbell. I need a super suave mofo that can spout cheesy lines that elevate them into classic status. And I might need some reverse acting with all that jumping in and out of the General Lee.

    Cool Cameo

    The A-Team vs. CHiPs
    If you can find them, just maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    Hmmmm... maybe Shania Twain and Sheryl Crow can sing at The Boar's Nest during the epilogue before the computer simulation of Waylon Jenning's voice comes in to wrap it all up with some down home country wisdom. BUT NEITHER ONE OF THEM IS DAISY DUKE MATERIAL!

    And I'd buy Bruce Campbell as Hughie Hogg or Chickasaw County Sheriff Ed Little or maybe as the villain of the week (hmmm, Uncle Jesse stumbles upon a shack on the back 40 of the Duke farm, including a strange book with a fleshy cover), but he's not even remotely like Luke Duke.

    And Jack Black... he'd be good for Cooter or for Cletus Hogg, but not for Luke. No way, no how. Actually, I'd prefer it if Kyle Gass was Cletus Hogg and Jack Black was Cooter, that way you could have some Tenacious D magic pop up in the middle of the film somewhere.

    And without George Peppard, you can't really have The A-Team. Plans will not come together without him. This leaves you with CHiPs, which is a good thing because the ramps that Hazzard County mysteriously built into every object taller than 3 ft. will get double usage in the film. [​IMG]

    So, abstain, abstain, CHiPs. :p)

    Brad
