It's insane to think it's already been 10 years since The Dukes of Hazzard was released in a film based off the American television series that aired from 1979 to 1985.

We followed the adventures of cousins Bo, Luke, Daisy and their Uncle Jesse as they outran crooked Hazzard County commissioner Boss Hogg and Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane.

Wondering what your favorite actors from Dukes are up to now? We have the answers!

1. Johnny Knoxville (Luke Duke)

Following Films: The Ringer, Jackass Number Two, Jackass 3D, Detroit Lives, The Dry Gulch Kid, Nature Calls, Fun Size, The Last Stand, Movie 43, Small Apartments, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Skiptrace, Elvis & Nixon

Fun Fact: Knoxville hired an American genealogist to help learn about his family tree. He informed Knoxville that his family is from the rural mountains in which a lot of in-breeding happens since it is too difficult to travel out of the community. Knoxville found this incredibly hilarious and not at all alarming.

2. Seann William Scott (Bo Duke)

Fun Fact: When first starting out in Hollywood in 1989, Scott was robbed by some gang members from South Central in Los Angeles. They sadly took away his shirt, shoes, and a one dollar bill while trying to get to a Baywatch audition.

3. Jessica Simpson (Daisy Duke)

Following Films: Employee of the Month, Blonde Ambition, Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous

Fun Fact: Simpson was considered for the lead role in Coyote Ugly, but turned it down because filmmakers refused to take out the sex scene.

4. Burt Reynolds (Boss Hogg)

Following Films: Cloud 9, End Game, Forget About It, Grilled, Broken Bridges, Randy and the Mob, In the Name of the King, Deal, Delgo, A Bunch of Amateurs, Pocket Listing, Robot Chicken, Freddie, My Name Is Earl, Burn Notice, American Dad!, Reel Love, Archer

Fun Fact: Reynolds was actually an incredibly talented football star and he attended Florida State University on a football scholarship. He was injured during the first game of the season and the injury worsened after he was in a car accident. He immersed himself in his English classes, which helped him discover his love for play acting.

5. Willie Nelson (Uncle Jesse Duke)

Following Films: Beerfest, Broken Bridges, The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning, Blonde Ambition, Fighting with Anger, Swing Vote, Surfer, Dude, A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All!, Get a Job, When Angels Sing, Shoot Out of Luck, The Dry Gulch Kid

Fun Fact: Nelson was born in the Great Depression. His family wasn't very well off and had to pick cotton during the summer with the other inhabitants of Abbott, Texas. He disliked picking cotton so much, it inspired him to develop his musical talents in singing and playing guitar so that he could lead himself to a better future. He began earning money playing in dance halls and honky tonks at the tender age of 13.

So put on your Daisy Dukes, turn on your engine, and get ready to kick some massive ass.

Or, you could shake your ass, much like Jessica Simpson epically does as Daisy. You have to admit, that girl looked crazy good.

And now I need to put down the burritos and get my lazy self to the gym.
