Simpson to Walk On

01.28.2004

I'll say this much about Jessica Simpson - she's a nice looking girl. That's about all I'll say about Jessica. Anything else is beating a dead horse. But her recent increased notoriety due to that MTV series "Newlyweds" of course led to a few offers to star in some feature projects. Ms. Simpson (or is it Mrs. Lachey?) has signed on to make her feature film debut in the baseball drama WALK ON about the Texas Rangers and how they were saved from bankruptcy by a 18-year-old. Walter Hill (48 HRS.) has signed on to direct the film from a script by Richard Julian. WALK ON is a true story about the franchise's darkest days in 1973 when it was widely believed the team would be forced to disband and declare bankruptcy. But they drafted high school senior David Clyde who had a Cinderella season and helped turn the team around. Simpson likely sparked to the project because of her roots in Texas, where filming will take place next year. The singer will star as Clyde's girlfriend and eventual wife. If you just can't get enough Jessica Simpson, you can watch her perform at this Sunday's Super Bowl and mark your calendars for the "variety show" she's planning for ABC, co-starring hubby Nick. Look out Sonny and Cher...
