‘Dukes of Hazzard’ star acting on Broadway and heading to Fan Fair in Nashville
I saw Tom Wopat in “Django Unchained.” What other projects does he have going on?
—Ricky Smith, Dalton, Ga.
Wopat, 61, portrays the sheriff on Broadway in “The Trip to Bountiful.” “It’s not a big part but it’s a beautiful part. I’ve got a really great scene with Cicely Tyson in the lead,” says the native of Lodi, Wis. He’s also released a new album, “I’ve Got Your Number,” which he describes as “a kind of tribute to the Mad Men era, with a big band orchestra.” Wopat co-starred recently with Jane Seymour in the ABC Family musical “Lovestruck” and is looking ahead to the Dukes of Hazzard Fan Fair June 8 in Nashville, Tenn., as he reunites with his TV show co-stars.
