You’ve got the mic, what is one thing that you want to share with the Thrive Nation before you drop the mic?
Schneider wrote, directed and stars in Stand On It, which is a tribute to the 1977 hit, Smokey and the Bandit. Schneider’s wife (and film producer) Alicia Allain helmed the new film — their 11th project together. The script’s inspiration came from the couple’s love for the Burt Reynolds’ classic. Fun Fact: Schneider makes a brief and uncredited appearance at the end of Smokey and the Bandit – his first on-screen appearance that came just 2 years before he shot to fame in The Dukes of Hazzard.
