I'm a big fan of John Schneider. What is he doing now, acting or singing?
—Michelle S., Missouri

The former Dukes of Hazzard (Bo Duke) star is focusing on his acting career. The actor and singer voiced the part of Rick O'Connell, a dashing adventurer, for the WB pilot The Mummy: The Animated Series. Also for the WB, Schneider, 41, is cast as Superman's father in the new series Smallville—an hour-long drama about the young life of Clark Kent. Schneider has appeared in movies such as Snow Day and guest starred on Touched by an Angel. His singing credentials also are impressive. He's had nine singles that made the Top 10 and four that went to No. 1. His most recent album is Worth the Wait. Schneider lives outside Los Angeles with his wife, Elly, and his three children.
