'Leverage': Christian Kane and John Schneider act, sing and duke it out

Christian Kane is having a bunch of dreams come true with this Sunday's (July 18) episode of TNT's caper drama "Leverage," called "The Studio Job," directed by former "Star Trek: The Next Generation" star Jonathan Frakes.

First up, Kane gets to sing "Thinking of You," an original song he co-wrote, when his character, cocky tough guy Eliot Spencer, goes undercover as a country crooner to take down a corrupt record executive.

"Just like every single one of my songs," Kane says, "it's about a girl. I don't know if I could write songs if it wasn't for the female race, to be honest with you.

"It's one of those songs, it's just a sweet little good-bye kiss, but it's got a pat on the butt as you go."

Kane also gets to trade blows with a icon of his youth, since "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider plays the exec in question.

John Schneider to star in 'Doonby' film

John Schneider to star in 'Doonby' film
The actor who made Bo Duke a TV staple during the early 1980s will play a modern George Bailey in "Doonby."

In the feature film, John Schneider stars as 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 film is described as a cross between "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Crazy Heart" and also stars Robert Davi as the town sheriff.

Tommy Warren, who was behind the "Teed Off" series of golf comedies from National Lampoon, is producing with Mark Joseph, a marketing veteran whose campaigns included "The Passion of the Christ" and "Facing the Giants."

Joseph also is co-producing the film's soundtrack, which includes music from AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson.

"Doonby" is written and directed by British filmmaker Peter Mackenzie and will be shot at Spiderwood Studios near Austin.

Schneider Blasts TV Bosses For Unpaid Royalties

Schneider Blasts TV Bosses For Unpaid Royalties
The Dukes Of Hazzard star John Schneider has blasted his former TV bosses for failing to pay him millions of dollars in royalties from the hit show.

Schneider and Tom Wopat played cousins Bo and Luke Duke in the 1970s and 80s TV series, which was a huge hit for network CBS.

Nearly 25 years after the show wrapped, Schneider claims CBS bosses have reaped millions from sales of videos, DVDs and merchandise, and paid the cast nothing.

He tells the New York Post, "They still sell Dukes merchandise at (discount retailer) Target, and none of us see a cent of that, of course. We were supposed to get a piece of it, of the tape and DVD sales. We made millions for people we never even met and will continue to into perpetuity. Would I like a piece of that for my kids after I'm gone? You bet. But that's the way it goes."

Schneider Mourns Missing Dogs

  • WENN
Dukes Of Hazzard star John Schneider is mourning the loss of his stolen puppies after an unsuccessful appeal for their safe return by Christmas.

Thieves nabbed the actor's Cadillac Escalade SUV earlier this month, while the Yorkiepoo and Yorkshire Terrier - which Schneider planned to give to his children for Christmas - were in the back of the vehicle.

The car was later recovered without the dogs - prompting Schneider, who played heartthrob Bo Duke in the 1980s show, to plead for the dogs' return on a Los Angeles radio show.

But in a holiday card sent to friends this week (begs22Dec08), the star lamented the loss, and declared he has no plans to buy replacements.

He wrote: "Sadly... no puppies came home. We all appreciate your letters of concern and good wishes."

Schneider Appeals For Dogs' Return
Dukes Of Hazzard star John Schneider is appealing for the safe return of two puppies stolen with his car from a California shopping mall.

The Yorkiepoo and Yorkshire Terrier - which Schneider planned to give to his children for Christmas - were in the back of the Cadillac Escalade when it was snatched from Sherman Oaks' Fashion Square Mall.

The car was later recovered, without the dogs - prompting Schneider, who played heartthrob Bo Duke in the 1980s show, to appear on a Los Angeles radio show to plead for the 10-week-old pooches' safe return.

He told Kiis FM DJ Valentine on Wednesday, "I understand what's going on in the economy and I understand that. Nobody stole the car because the dogs were in it. If you have been given the gift of two little puppies or even one of our puppies - if you've been given the gift out of nowhere. Those puppies really belong to (my children).

"I'd very much like for you to consider doing the right thing and getting in touch with Valentine, getting in touch with the shelter and getting those puppies back in the Christmas home that they belong in.

"I'm not mad, I'm not gonna point a finger, I'm not gonna tell a tale. I would just like to have our puppies back for Christmas."

Schneider, who most recently starred in Superman TV show Smallville, added: "Superman's dad would very much like to get his puppies back."
