Willie Nelson reprises his role as Uncle Jessie in this two-hour made-for-t.v. prequel that takes us back to days when Bo, Luke and Daisy were first sent to live with their moonshinin’ uncle.

Hazel Smith, of CMT says:

“Would you believe actors Randy Wayne and April Scott — hot from the upcoming prequel, The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning — were in my kitchen, chowing down on Hazel-made chicken salad, broccoli and pea casserole, potato casserole, crunchy sweet potatoes, cucumbers and onions, and chocolate cake?

Handsome Wayne, a native of Moore, Okla., with leading-man features, is perfect in the role of Luke Duke. Missouri-born April can easily fill the cutoffs of Daisy Duke without breaking a thread. Wait until you see the DVD featuring Willie Nelson in the recurring role of Uncle Jesse. It’s set for a March 13 release.

Cowboy Troy, the tallest person to ever grace my kitchen, also came for the party because he raps a version of John Anderson’s mega hit, “Swingin’,” in the movie. And he told me he is expecting — well, his wife is, anyway.

Where was the actor who portrays Bo Duke in the new movie? Like a blue-zillion others, hottie Jonathan Bennett was snowbound in Denver. He even missed his co-stars’ first visit to downtown Nashville and Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, where I unde”rstand April danced on the bar. Oh, my!
