John Schneider – who famously played Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard – is headed for divorce.

Elvira “Elly” Schneider, his wife of 21 years, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles county on Nov. 14.

The couple have three adult children – Leah, Chasen, and Karis – and Elvira is reportedly seeking spousal support.

In addition to his role as a fast-driving country boy on the iconic 1980s TV series, Schneider played Clark Kent’s father in the CW series Smallville. This is his second divorce; he was previously married to former Miss America and Los Angeles broadcaster Tawny Little.
