RENO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Max Baer, Jr. – aka “Jethro Bodine” on The Beverly Hillbillies – is packin’ up the Clampetts and movin’ to Reno, Nevada.

Next summer the 60-year-old Baer plans on opening a 235,000-square-foot, 408 room casino that will be a replica of the Clampetts’ Beverly Hills mansion.

The casino will also feature a replica of the Clampett’s old mountain shack and a 246-foot- high oil derrick which will spew an 80-ft flame.

Baer says guests will be able to order drinks from waitresses wearing cut-off jeans like Ellie Mae and watch a dance revue starring showgirls dressed up like Granny Clampett.

He also plans on building a theater where all 274 episodes of The Beverly Hillbillies will play continuously and a gift shop that will sell replicas of Granny’s glasses and Ellie Mae’s slingshot bras.

Baer still needs approval from the city of Reno for his Beverly Hillbillies bacchanal, but he hopes to break ground by next June.
