On Wednesday, Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider put an end to a “ridiculous” rumor that’s been floating around about the actor’s hair.
Schneider is one-half of the famous Dukes brothers duo from the hit action-comedy series from the late ’70s and 1980s. He and co-star Tom Wopat played the title roles of Bo and Luke Duke, two good ‘ol boys forever getting into trouble with the law. In a way, the Dukes were the Robin Hoods of their own rural community.
The Bo Duke actor still has a large following even though Dukes of Hazzard has been off the air since 1985. He went on to star in Smallville in the 2000s and has worked on multiple other projects in his career. Schneider is also a successful musician who has released nine studio albums and a greatest hits package. In fact, many of his songs reached the top of the Billboard country singles charts.
Yet when you’re as famous as Schneider, there’s always going to be a certain group of people who will question you about nonsensical things. That’s been the case recently with people accusing Schneider of having fake hair. In a short video posted to his YouTube page titled “Seriously, dude? Here’s proof,” Schneider addresses the odd rumor.
The 61-year-old has a full head of hair and goes on to prove that it’s still his own. He yanks, tugs, and pulls on his hair to show that it’s not going anywhere. He credits his father and grandfather who he says had the exact same type of hair. Schneider went on to blame internet trolls that have nothing better to do with their lives for starting the rumor. Hopefully, his video proof puts this silly notion to bed.
‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Star Shows Off Newest Ride in Clip
The last we checked in with Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider, he showed off his new ride to his fans on YouTube. Yet the car isn’t just any old vehicle, it’s from the set of his 2020 film Stand On It.
As you’ll hear in Schneider’s video, he says the Stand On It car is a 100% Custom Build 2016 T-Top Mopar Challenger. Its description reads, “If the Smoky And The Bandit Trans Am and the General Lee had a baby it would be this gem!”
The Dukes of Hazzard star’s new ride is a welcome reprieve considering what he’s gone through recently. Less than two months ago, Schneider revealed that Hurricane Ida caused serious damage to both his Holden, Lousiana home and film studio. While speaking to his fans, he asked for their help but wasn’t asking for a handout. He asked fans to help him rebuild the studio by buying a movie or other souvenirs from his website.
“Now, I’d like you to help us by going to the store, JohnSchneidersStudios.com,” Schneider said. “Get you a movie, get your hat, get you something. And I would very much appreciate it.”
