The story-line of October Baby is near and dear to Schneider’s heart because his family has experienced similar situations. He has been married to his wife for 19 years, but she had to make some difficult and very similar choices when she was a young teenager. He explains that at the age of 15, she got pregnant and many people in her life told her that she should get an abortion. Instead, she decided to have the baby and give it up for adoption.
But 18 years later, Elly decided that she wanted to find her daughter and have a relationship with her. After a long search, she finally found her and they both have a strong relationship with each other. Elly is also a proud grandmother to her daughter’s first child. “It’s the coolest thing in the world,” Schneider says, referring to the unique situation.
Schneider has also starred in other faith-based films in recent years. One of the – Doonby – is a pro-life film that is scheduled to come out in the fall. The story-line involves him being a mysterious drifter that comes to a small town and improves the life of the people that he encounters. According to one description, it’s like a combination of “The Twilight Zone” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

He has done some very important and thought-provoking films and movies since he lived with Uncle Jess and cousin Daisy in the Dukes of Hazzard. But he enjoys the recognition nonetheless.
