Tom Wopat ventures off the stage for "Taking Chance"

You may think Tom Wopat's life is all about Broadway these days. Well ... actually, you'd be right. But that doesn't mean our own Luke Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard" won't pick up a small movie role now and then.

"Taking Chance" is a story of military honor. The plotline from the IMDb: "Based on real-life events, Lt. Col. Michael Strobl, a volunteer military escort officer, accompanies the body of 19-year-old Marine Chance Phelps back to his hometown of Dubois, Wyoming." Kevin Bacon stars, and Wopat's character is Phelps' father. Paige Turco of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movies and the '90s TV show "American Gothic" also appears.

Directed by Ross Katz, who also shares writing duties with Michael Strobl, the movie is scheduled to air in February 2009. It made the Sundance Film Festival for next year, too.
