|Okay, I'm gonna go off topic here for just a second, but dont worry, it all ties in. |
The movie, Walk The Line, about Johnny and June Carter Cash, that had been going for a good long while, in preperations, and filming. And Reese Witherspoon plays June very well, or so I've seen in a few things. And to play the part, Reese died her hair brown, no biggy there. AND one final thing. June Carter Cash endorsed (i think thats the right word) Reese Witherspoon playing the part of herself. June liked Reese alot, and thouyght she would do a good job, so she decided that Reese should be the only one to play the part.
Okay, now this is where it all ties in. I honestly think, that the original cast of the Dukes should have been able to pick who were following them up. For instance, if Catherine Bach had chosen Jessica Simpson, because she KNEW that Jessica would've done a good job, I would have watched the Movie. And Reese had her hair died for the longest time, throughout the whole time they were filming, and preparing, and she also hung around June Carter Cash before she died so that she could get a feel for the role. Now I am assuming that this movie cast didnt even THINK to attempt what Reese did, trying to be one with the character. A few weeks of hanging around the original cast, and watching the show as often as they could, they probably would have done better than all the reviews I've sseen. But you know, I bet that even a few DAYS of hanging around the original cast and watching only a handful of episodes would have made the moviie better! Because then, they would have had at least a little of the part in them.
So thats how my reference of Walk The Line ties in with The Dukes Of Hazzard movie.
That's actually a very good point. They should've at least gotten the original actors take on the new actors...even if their opinions were not the final word.
