JESS' PLUS ONE: Looks as if the Knoxville premiere of that "Dukes of Hazzard" movie will turn into an even bigger celebrity event than anticipated. Failing pop crooner Nick Lachey will be accompanying his oh-so-blond wife, Jessica Simpson, to the Turkey Creek screening of "Dukes" on Saturday, July 30.

He's not in the flick, which also stars Seann William Scott and some dude named Johnny Knoxville (sounds like a phony name to me). He's just here for the free popcorn.

Says Nicky's official mouthpiece: "Yes, he is planning on attending all of the premieres with Jessica."

Why shouldn't he? This is a big deal for her.

"Dukes" marks Jess' first major big-screen role. She plays Daisy Duke (immortalized on the small screen by Catherine Bach). If this film does well, maybe Jess can move up to bigger roles, like playing the Adrienne Barbeau role for the big-screen version of "Maude."

The Knox Vegas premiere is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated local entertainment events of the summer. Anyone who's anyone will be there.

Well, John Schneider, Tom Wopat (whose son and ex-wife are East Tennessee residents) and Bach — the original "Dukes" — won't be there. This insider has been told they're not happy to see a remake without them being involved.

The "Dukes" screening is set for the massive Regal Cinemas Pinnacle Stadium 18 at Turkey Creek.
