Dukes Of Hazzard stars Tom Wopat and John Schneider are hoping to team up as brothers again onstage. The former co-stars portrayed Bo and Luke Duke in the beloved 1980s TV series and Schneider reveals they're keen to play siblings again. He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "We wanted to play brothers on stage and you know we've looked around and can't find anything... It would be great to do a musical... (Maybe) Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. Or someone could write an original musical, but they better hurry because Tom's old!" And the actor admits he and Wopat would also like to hit the stage in a revival of Neil Simon's classic play The Odd Couple, rotating roles played on the big screen by Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. He adds, "The idea we had was to do The Odd Couple and to switch roles every other night. He'd (Wopat) be Felix one night and I'd be Felix the next night. We could pull it off."
