Jessica Simpson to Keep It Light

No drama-queen dreams for Jessica Simpson

Not to be mean, but was anyone really pitching seriious dramatic roles to Jessica Simpson?

I'm glad that she seems comfortable playing light comedy roles because the reality is that she's not likely to be competing for anything else in the near future. There's no doubt that she's a knockout with a great singing voice, but she's got a long way to go to earn serious acting chops.

To her credit though, to the extent that *anyone* goes to see the Dukes of Hazzard movie it is because of her. She's a definite box office draw, but let's be honest here: it's not to see her acting abilities. So if you're a casting director, you'll definitely want to consider her for your next project. Just make sure that you're not leaving it up to her to carry the movie for you.
