October Baby[edit]

In the opening paragraph on Schneider it correctly states that he is most widely known from Dukes of Hazzard and Smallville, but in the same sentence it says he's widely known for October Baby, a small independent film that never even garnered a wide release. This might be wishful thinking for fans or producers of the film, but it's far from accurate. If we want to add a third area where Schneider is famous into the opening statement, it would arguably be his singing career where he had a fair amount of success. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:56, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Age Controversy[edit]

The date of birth was given as 1954 in the main article, however it was also listed under the 1960s births category. Schneider was indeed born in 1960 - he lied about his age in order to get the part in The Dukes of Hazzard, as he was only 18 when filming began. He confirms this on the commentary on the DVD of the first series. IMDB currently lists the erroneous 1954 date, however see discussion on the IMDB forums - it should be changed soon. 13:05, 17 August 2005 (UTC)

Added age section to article explaining that he was born in 1960 and this has been stated by himself on various ocassions I agree with the date should be 1960 and have updated accordingly --Chad 19:44, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
Added more sources found that state 1960 as birth year, people keep changing this, only becouse IMDB is listed incorrectly, as with everything IMDB isnt the always accurate and research should be done, there is even message board posts on IMDB about people trying to get it changed and having proof about the 1960 birth year but IMDB won't listen or change it. --Chad 04:18, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
IMDB has changed the date to 1960. NoFlyingCars (talk) 21:04, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

High School Assertion[edit]

User: claimed on 19 December 2005 the following: "John Schneider Graduated from North Springs High School in Atlanta, Georgia, not Fox Lane High in New York!"

I have first-hand experience that supports the "graduated from Fox Lane" hypothesis. I graduated from Fox Lane High School in 1986, and from its affiliated Middle School in 1982. (The two districts are coterminous, so everyone who goes to the MS ends up in the HS.) Sometime around 1980, my middle school chorus teacher was staging "Fiddler on the Roof". "Dukes" was still popular, so he brought in a playbill from when they'the MS had done the play 14 years earlier, impressed us by pointing out John Schneider listed in the role of Tevye. :) On the other hand, it's possible he went to the MS and then moved to Atlanta for high school or something. --tgeller 06:24, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
I have moved that assertion from the article page to the talk page. If anyone can verify, please update the article. Lbbzman 03:15, 31 December 2005 (UTC)
I have readded that North Springs High School as Graduated from I have found numerous articles referencing this as the graduation place if anyone has diffinitive proof against this we can remove and post the other, with references. --Chad 06:51, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

TV and Film[edit]

I added this section if anyone can help clean this up, or knows of anything that can be added please do so thank you --Chad 10:30, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Article Rating[edit]

I rated the article as Start class as it meets all criteria set forth by Wikipedias standards, alot of work still needs to be done in cleanup, and making the article more comprehesive. --Chad 10:30, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

She who?[edit]

"John Schneider received an early birthday present for his 50th birthday, When his fans got together fans and friends to contribute any pictures that they had of them and John along with writing a special note to John for his birthday. She then compiled them all into a book titled "Dear John..." (talk) 03:42, 17 October 2010 (UTC)


On Celebrity Ghost Stories John talks about his brother who died as a child, and his belief that he is potentially a reincarnation of his brother. (talk) 00:07, 31 October 2011 (UTC)


If anyone could take a look at the rows and columns for the filmography, I would appreciate it. I did my best to fix it but this not my area of experience. Thanks. Quis separabit? 04:20, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
