One of the most recognizable faces on television in the 1980s, actor-singer Tom Wopat went on to enjoy a fulfilling career on stage, screen and in the recording studio. Along with co-star John Schneider, Wopat became a star virtually overnight when he was a cast as Luke Duke on the action-comedy "The Dukes of Hazzard" (CBS, 1979-1985). Although dismissed by critics, the show quickly entered the realm of pop culture phenomenon and forever linked the actor to his good ole' boy character. Wopat also pursued his love of music, releasing albums like A Little Bit Closer, which spawned a number of country music singles. Television remained a reliable venue for Wopat, who played one of Cybill Shepherd's ex-husbands on the hit sitcom "Cybill" (CBS, 1995-98) and later took part in a pair of Hazzard revivals, "The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion!" (CBS, 1997) and "The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood" (CBS, 2000). But it was on Broadway where the affable star achieved his greatest success, starring in such acclaimed productions as the hit musical "Annie Get Your Gun" and in David Mamet's seminal drama "Glengarry, Glen Ross." Amidst his stage and recording efforts, Wopat continued to appear on screen, frequently in such Western fare as the Josh Brolin vehicle "Jonah Hex" (2010) and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" (2012). While appreciative of "The Dukes of Hazzard," Wopat wisely moved forward with a career in which his first two loves - music and theater - ultimately yielded immensely rewarding results.
