"I was not quite the iconic figure that I think both John and Cathy were on the show," Tom Wopat of "The Dukes of Hazzard" humbly tells the host on the pop-culture podcast "Just My Show." Come, now, Tom! You're an icon to us!
Wopat touches on several aspects of our beloved "Dukes" in the online interview, including his views on celebrity and his real-life closeness to on-screen cuz John Schneider.
"To me, I have never really been one to hang with celebrities. That's not my deal," he says. "When I'm hanging with John, we're like brothers. We spent a lot of time together through seven years."
Wopat even talks about the General Lee and the story behind those "bolted" doors, as well as the controversy surrounding that confederate flag. Listen to the whole interview at http://www.justmyshow.com/showthirteen.html.
