Biography

Tom Wopat will forever be remembered as strapping, good ol' boy Luke Duke, the virile, blue-eyed, dark-haired, plaid-shirted rascal (equally good-looking John Schneider was the strapping, plaid-shirted blond cousin) on the rough-and-tumble yet bucolic 1979–85 series The Dukes of Hazzard. Where others may have fallen by the TV wayside, however, after the cancellation of such a popular series, Wopat moved on and reverted back to his first true love, music. He successfully refocused as a recording artist and musical leading man of Broadway and regional shows.

The highly engaging Wisconsin native comes from a large family, raised on a dairy farm. His father and maternal grandfather were of Czech descent. Wopat began singing and dancing in school musicals from age 12 and, after high school graduation, decided to avidly pursue music as a viable profession. Studying at the University of Wisconsin, he dropped out to front a rock band as both guitarist and lead singer, and later gained on-stage experience in such musicals as "South Pacific", "West Side Story" and "Jesus Christ Superstar".

Wopat reunited with Schneider in an episode of Smallville (2001).
