Before They Were Stars: Jonathan Frakes on “The Dukes of Hazzard”

As Gill wrote in his Celebrity Birthday of the Day, no matter what else he does in his career, Jonathan Frakes will always be known as Commander Will Riker. You could apply that same logic to pretty much every actor from any version of Star Trek. However, before Star Trek: The Next Generation, Jonathan Frakes actually had quite a large list of television credits to his name. Back in his beardless days, he made a guest appearance on an episode of The Dukes of Hazzard, playing Boss Hogg’s handsome young nephew, Jamie Lee Hogg, who winds up in a romance with Daisy Duke. Sadly, a crossover episode about using the Enterprise to smuggle illegal moonshine never came to fruition.
