This blond, poster boy actor will always be recalled for playing Bo Duke, one of three mischievous cousins, on the back-country comedy "The Dukes of Hazzard" (CBS, 1979-85). John Schneider has managed to keep an ongoing career, branching out into singing, particularly country music, and recording 11 albums, as well as starring in TV-movies and several failed series. Born and raised in Mount Kisco , New York, Schneider was an unknown when he was discovered by "Dukes" creator Phil Mandelker and given the role of Bo. Although considered the most low-brow program on TV at the time, the CBS effort was hugely popular with segments of the public. But in 1982, Schneider and co-star Tom Wopat walked off the show in a dispute over revenues due them from merchandising. They sat out the next season, but rejoined the show in 1983. By then, the magic was gone, although the series remained on the air for two more years. Schneider also provided voice of Bo Duke for the CBS animated Saturday morning "The Dukes" in 1983.
