John Schneider, better known as Bo Duke from the '70s and '80s TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, is shortselling his Agoura Hills, Calif., home for $2.199 million.

Looks like this Duke boy is at it again.

The actor, who currently appears in the series Smallville, also owns a condo in Westlake Village, Calif.; a small house in suburban Nashville; and several properties in and around Apple Valley, Calif. Schneider told the L.A. Times that he's looking for an easier property to care for, but since the home is listed as a short sale, the real reason is more likely that Schneider spread himself too thin financially.

He bought the 7,000-square-foot home in 1999 for $1.25 million and now, 12 years later, he owes almost 10 times that amount. A title search reveals two liens on the property -- the loan for $1.775 and just under $10 million in back taxes.
