Jessica Simpson: 'Baywatch' babe?

155045__jess_lThis report, saying that Jessica Simpson will be bouncing up and down the beach as a lifeguard in a big-screen Baywatch movie smells bogus to us at PopWatch, but it’s an idea that’s just witless enough to be plausible. After all our discussions about remakes, it’s dispiriting to think that this is the best career move anyone in Hollywood can come up with for Simpson. About the only thing saving her from a life of big-screen remakes is the fact that Charlie’s Angels and The Beverly Hillbillies have already been done. (Playing Elly May in the Hillbillies movie was Erika Eleniak, who was, of course, a Baywatch alumna. The circle of life, dear readers.)

Can’t we please think outside the halter top for Simpson? If she has to do a remake, how about the Angie Dickinson part in Police Woman? If she’s just going to be the Hot Babe, at least make her a Hot Babe with a Gun.

    How about Simpson in Ghostbusters 3. She can play the hot new intern and Bill Murray’s protoge. Simpson with a proton pack…need I say more?

    Jessica Simpson has a jaw like babe the big blue ox!

    OK, so first of all for a baywatch remake you need 1. Pamela Anderson, 2. Carmen Electra, 3. Britney Spears ( instead of Jessica ). I mean Pamela and Carmen are hotter than ever so why not have them? i dont get it. and Britney is 10X better than Jessica.

    How about nothing considering she is not an actress?

    Why are we even gettin a Baywatch movie?

    “Baywatch” the motion picture?!
    I have no words….
    Okay, maybe a few….WTF!? I swear, as an aspiring screenwriter, I can only imagine how many good scripts have gotten the pass over because they [may have] decided to greenlight what will inevitably a up close look at American camp starring the Queen of the moment who embodies that true campy ideal.
    *sigh* for shame…

    Thank you, Nicole. Why anyone in their right mind would want a “Baywatch” movie foisted on them is beyond me, but it’s just the kind of mentally non-taxing project appropriate for Simpson and her “acting” skills. Sheesh, is there any chance that real actors will get film roles again, and not the latest hot rapper or fading pop star du jour?

    There is only one way to stop these crappy TV remakes from being made: people need to STOP GOING TO SEE THEM. If the studios see that they aren’t going to make money, they’ll stop going to a well that ran dry after “Starsky & Hutch” (he may never win an Oscar, but I’ll laugh at anything Todd Phillips puts on screen).

    I don’t really care about any “Baywatch” movie, and I care even less about Jessica Simpson.
    I just wanna give props to whoever drew “Microsoft Painted” the signature red swimsuit onto Jessica in that picture. Very nice! It has NOT gone unnoticed

    So, how old are the original cast of Baywatch? Like they couldn’t do it, Hasselhoff was about 58 when that show was on, he’s what? 65 now, what’s the difference? Anyway, if I’m drowning, there’s nobody I’d rather see coming to save my hide than Pam Anderson and her front end flotation devices.

    Baywatch- The Movie??? I don’t know what’s worse: the fact that Hollywood is making yet ANOTHER movie based on a crappy TV show or that Jessica Simpson is STILL getting acting roles when she can’t act her way of a paper bag.
    Oh, the horror. The horror.

  • Jason

    Will someone tell me why we should care what sort of roles a no-talent like Jessica Simpson is considering. Please stop talking about people like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton like they have something to offer. Just stop talking about them!

  • Brian

    Jessica Simpson is kinda nice to look at in short bursts, but much like staring at the sun too long damage will occur to whomever looks too long at miss “is this chicken I’m eating?” I wish she was more like her sister, and not because I think her sister is talented or anything but rather because she falls off the radar for long periods of time which makes her infrequent appearances more tolerable.

    Ditto pretty much all the comments here and one more, who is controlling the photo shop at EW? Looks like a kindergardner drew that red shirt on her!
