Bo Duke has left the building! Dukes of Hazzard alum John Schneider’s latest role, in Tyler Perry’s highly-anticipated soap opera, The Haves and the Have Nots, will definitely make viewers of the 80’s series do a double take.
I'm usually cast as the guy who lives on a dirt road — the one who'll be there to sandbag your house when you need help. That ain't Cryer. READ MORE
Soap operas are coming to OWN after all! As part of The Mighty O's programming pact with Tyler Perry, the one-man entertainment brand has created a sudsy, new drama entitled The Haves and The Have Nots for Ms. Winfrey's previously touchy-feely channel.
Based on one of Perry's stage plays, The Haves and The Have Nots is the upstairs/downstairs saga of a ruthlessly-wealthy WASP family and an African-American clan headed up by their God-fearing housekeeper.
The soap stars Dukes of Hazzard alum John Schneider as Judge Jim Cryer, patriarch of the powerful Cryer dynasty. Judge Cryer has been secretly paying for the services of high-priced escort Candace Young (One Life to Live's Tika Sumpter), who just so happens to be the long-lost daughter of his family's church-going housekeeper Hanna (In The Heat of The Night's Crystal Fox)!
Passions alum Eva Tamargo appears as Celine, chef to the Cryer family. Peter Parros (As The World Turns) stars as David Harrington, a wealthy friend of the Cryers. Gavin Houston (Guiding Light) portrays Jeffrey Harrington, substance abuse counselor for the Cryer's troubled son Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell). Watch the steamy trailer below!
