"Who's gonna be J.R. in the Dallas movie?" is apparently the new, "Who's gonna be the next James Bond?" Variety is naming a pretty wide range of actors, from Mel Gibson to Tommy Lee Jones, but John Travolta is said to currently be in the lead. And, though her reps vehemently denied her involvement several months ago – even going as far to claim that if a casting rumor is printed anywhere except for "our industry papers of record, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter", then it's probably not true – Catherine Zeta-Jones is atop the list of names for the role of Sue Ellen, which Jennifer Lopez and Demi Moore are also said to be up for. What about Bobby? Matthew McConaughey and Owen Wilson are said to be on the list to fill Patrick Duffy's boots. The producers are apparently dead set on casting a pop starlet in the role of Lucy; Lindsay Lohan, Mandy Moore and Jessica Simpson are all on the list. Other names floating around for various roles in Robert Luketic's film include Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, and Jane Fonda.
