Singing beauty Jessica Simpson has landed a role in the third X-Men movie, just weeks after bagging a part in The Dukes of Hazzard.

The NEWLYWEDS: NICK AND JESSICA singer has proved to be a huge hit with producers and will play a mutant superhero called DAZZLER alongside HUGH JACKMAN's Wolverine.

A source says, "Jessica sent an audition tape and producers were impressed.

"They will possibly give her a small role in X-MEN 3 as a lounge-singer to introduce the character of Dazzler."
