Brothers Gives Jessica Simpson the Boot

With competition coming from Four Brothers, Jessica Simpson took a fall at the box office as last weekend’s No. 1 movie, The Dukes of Hazzard, slipped to third place – making $13 million since Friday and bringing its 10-day haul to $57.5 million, according to studio estimates.

The good ol’ boy comedy – in which Simpson plays Daisy Duke, cousin to Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke Duke (Johnny Knoxville) – is expected to earn a total of $85 million, Dan Fellman, president of Warner Bros. domestic theatrical distribution, tells Reuters.

He bonded with his Brothers on the ice
Though Benjamin had never ice-skated in his life, he had to learn fast to portray an ice-hockey-playing former foster child in the Detroit-set Four Brothers. “I’m from Atlanta, and I don’t even get out in the cold. I hated it,” he says. “But by the third or fourth day I got into it and I started to love it.”
