http://www.itv.com/news/entertainment_1962356.html Jessica Simpson has been tipped to star in a remake of Californian beach drama Baywatch. A source told a newspaper: "Jessica really caught the eye in The Dukes of Hazzard film last summer. She was the unanimous choice for the Baywatch role." Jessica, 25, will reportedly play a heroic lifeguard on Venice Beach, California and is expected to take up Pamela Anderson's legacy. The source added: "Jessica has all the assets to make Pammi's part her own." Producers also hope David Hasselhoff, 53, who played Lt Mitch Buchannon, will be interested in the remake if Jessica joins the cast.
