John Schneider set to star in "Doonby"

Thanks to Phyllis over at John Schneider's Unofficial Fan Club on Facebook for helping us stay up-to-date on our own Bo Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard," because Heaven knows that's a full-time job in and of itself! The news just hit that John-John has another movie on tap, "Doonby."

Schneider portrays Sam Doonby, "a happy-go-lucky drifter who takes up residence in a small Texas town but seems suspiciously immune to the misfortunes that beset the other townsfolk," the Hollywood Reporter says in their full story. It's being called a modern take on "It's a Wonderful Life."

The film also features Ernie Hudson, who not only appeared on "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," where Schneider was once a regular, but he also appeared in a 1982 episode of "The Dukes."
