Uncle Bo Duke

Recommended Posts

Bo Duke turns 55 tomorrow (April 8).

Think about this for a second. Since Uncle Jesse was born in 1920 he was 59 in 1979 when the show first came out. This means that Bo is only 4 years away from being Jesse's age!

By the way, I turn 55 just 7 days after Bo so that's why I think about these things.

That's an interesting thing to consider. :)

It's interesting, though. The role of Uncle Jesse in the series always felt to be of a no-determined-age "wise old man". When I was in my youth, I always imagined Jesse to be somewhere in his sixties.

Either way, if the Dukes ever got resurrected as a sort of "new generation crossover" show (which, sadly seems the strongest option now that so many of the cast are aging or passing away), you reckon John could effectively be the new 'wise old Uncle'. This would be an interesting twist considering Bo was typically the more hot-headed Duke; Luke was always the thinker and the planner.

Personally in such a show, I think "Aunt Daisy" would work well!
