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". Posted Image

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.

Added Bob Hoskins as Cooter and Wilford Brimley as Uncle Jesse.

The Uncle Jesse roster is now filled - I think Willie Nelson is a shoe-in for the part...

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! Posted Image

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. Posted Image

So, abstain, abstain, CHiPs. :P)
