The world's most famous ditzy blond of the moment, Jessica Simpson, is branching out from reality TV into other arenas. On top of her variety show (and failed sitcom), there's been talk for a while that she has been attached to a variety of comic book adaptations and old TV show turned modern movie reinventions. Now 'Jonesey54' updates the current status of those various projects from the local news outlets of Spokane, Washington:
"Jessica has some baseball-themed movie lined up first called "Walk-On." And shortly after she'll don the short jean shorts for the Dukes of Hazzard's role of Daisy Duke...but those casting rumors have been floating around the internet for quite some time.
What took me off guard as how our paper goes on to say how Jessica is possibly auditioning for a role as a superhero called Dazzler. The article goes on to say that producers where impressed with a small audition tape that the singer-actress sent them upon request, and will possibly give her a small role in the 3rd "X-Men" movie as a lounge-singer, to introduce the character of Dazzler, in hopes to extend the character's role in future films.
Anyway the rest of the article goes on about the role in the "I Dream of Jeannie" movie which she's still a run in for and has yet to be cast despite recent rumours of a signing. She faces deep competition from our favorite Mean Girl Lindsay Lohan and King Arthur's Keira Knightley for the role as well. Also the article states that a past project called Mort, The Dead Teenager" is officially dead and no longer in production nor starring Jessica anytime soon".
