Happy 57th Tom Wopat.

Duke of Handsome maybe!

Duke of Handsome maybe!

Tom Wopat as you may or may not know was window diving Dixie heartthrob Luke Duke from the Dukes of Hazzard.  What you may not know is that ol Tom has become a bankable Broadway star over the last decade plus starring in Annie Get Your Gun, 42nd St and Glengarry Glenross.  (Fanclub membership is only $15) I am constantly seeing his face on billboards in midtown and he is currently doing his fifth stint as Billy Flynn in Chicago.  I was trying to think of someone who would be less likely to be Broadway star (I did see George Wendt in drag in my only trip to the Great White Way) and then I just looked up the shitlist of craptastic thespians who have Razzle Dazzle’d tourists in Wopat’s current role in Chicago.

Alan Thicke

Joey Lawrence

Wayne Brady

Huey Lewis

Brian McKnight

Patrick Swayze

Lou Gossett Jr.

John C. Hurley AND George Hamilton (creepy)

In other words, there’s still a place for you Taylor Hicks whereever you are.
