Bojangles' spins "The Dukes," Morgan gets a new role, and more

Some bits and pieces of fun stuff found here and there ...

- The Bojangles' Famous Chicken 'n' Biscuits restaurant chain has spun out their own take on "The Dukes of Hazzard" with some local North Carolina talent. WCNC and the Charlotte Observer offer a sneak peek at the new TV spot, which will be released on October 1, featuring Panthers players Jake Delhomme and Steve Smith in a Bo and Luke Duke takeoff, complete with chicken details on the hood and trunk of the General Lee-type car. Check it out here:

- Morgan Fairchild is known to us for her one-episode stint as Jenna Wade early on in the "Dallas" run, but she's certainly well-known in the rest of the soaps world for her roles on numerous other things over the years. TV Guide reports that she's nabbed a new role on "Men in Trees" in an episode that will air in February.

- And another note from "Dukes" land: Las Vegas-based performer and avid "Dukes" fan Paul Casey will appear in a free concert in Henderson, Nevada, today and tomorrow. The fun is at 7 p.m. on Water Street in downtown, and it's the Super Run Car Show that also will feature "Dukes" stunt expert Tom Sarmento. (Yes, the General Lee will be there, too!)
