Kristin Cavallari to Take Over Jessica Simpson’s Role MoviesArticle May 26, 2006 Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari is set to take over the role of Daisy Duke from her rumored love rival Jessica Simpson in the next Dukes of Hazzard movie. Cavallari was rumored to be dating Simpson‘s estranged husband Nick Lachey earlier this year, and now she’s hoping to pick up one of the pop star’s cast-off movie roles. The film’s producer, Bill Gerber, is working on a prequel and is desperate to cast Cavallari in the role, which marked Simpson‘s film debut. He explains, “She’s at the top of the list. I like her innocence and her beauty. “It’s a prequel, like Batman. We’re going for a whole new cast.” Article Copyright World Entertainment News Network All Rights Reserved.
