Now that Jessica Simpson has landed a starring role in the movie version of The Dukes of Hazzard, her husband Nick Lachey is hoping to do the same - as THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN.

According to sources, the former 98 DEGREES star is in talks to take on the role made famous by Lee Majors in the 1970s.

An insider says, "You can't help but notice how much he looks like a young Lee Majors. He's a natural for the part."

Meanwhile, Simpson is currently spending more than two hours a day in the gym to perk up her buttocks for the role of hot pants fan DAISY DUKE in her movie, which will also star Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville.
