Veteran actor John Schneider has reportedly signed on to star in the upcoming flick entitled Doonby as the stories lead character. Schneider joins the already cast line up of actors such as Robert Davi, Ernie Hudson, Jennifer O’Neill and Jenn Gotzon.

Doonby tells the story of “a drifter who becomes a bartender in a small Texas town. Doonby seems to be blessed with spectacular good luck, leading his less fortunate neighbors to resent and envy him.” Peter Mackenzie, think American Dad, wrote the script and will direct Doonby. No word on a release date has been revealed.

Actor Jon Schneider, who is famous for his work as Bo Duke in the classic TV series The Dukes of Hazard and Smallville’s Jonathan Kent, is also currently working on several other movie roles this year. Cast in the 2011 flick Snow Beast, which we don’t know much about, Schneider will portray the on screen character by the name of Jim Harwood.

The performer is also involved in the movie What Would Jesus Do?, which he just reportedly wrapped production on. John plays a drifter holy man. He is also involved in the forthcoming flick Undercover in the role of Satan. And lastly Schneider is also part of the Back Nine, a spike TV golf series, inspired by Tiger Woods, where he will play the washed up golf champion Ronnie Barnes.

    I am looking forward to the release of Doonby. He is a great actor. I have seen in him in SciFy movies. The movie Doonby was made in my hometown of Smithville. Texas. The same place Hope Floats was filmed with Sandra Bullock and Harry Carnick Jr. Some of the locals where in Hope Floats and also in Doonby too. Hopefully it will bring him a Oscar to win, because I heard it was a great movie in the making at the time I was filmed.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this movie on the big screen! Saw it at a screening in Houston a few days ago and feel like I need to see it again soon! It is so rich in the story and themes, demands great depth from its main characters, and was very thought provoking! Loved this movie!
