Otis Burt "Sonny" Shroyer, Jr. (born August 28, 1935) is an American
actor who has appeared in various television and movie roles. He is best
known for his role as Deputy Sheriff
Enos Strate in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard. He also
starred in a spin-off called Enos based on his Dukes of Hazzard
character. Shroyer is married and has two sons, Chris and Mark.
Shroyer was born in the town of Valdosta, Georgia. He attended Florida
State University on a football scholarship, but his career was cut short
by an injury. He finished his degree at the University of Georgia.
He began a career as a professional model in 1961. His first screen
role came in the 1972 film Payday. Shroyer almost became typecast as a
bad guy before landing the role of the naive Deputy Enos Strate in the
hit pop culture series The Dukes of Hazzard in 1978 (first broadcast
early 1979). The Dukes of Hazzard role was Shroyer's most
visible. His character was written out at the start of the third season
to be given a spinoff series titled Enos in 1980. The new show was not a
success and was canceled after eighteen episodes. Shroyer returned to
The Dukes of Hazzard at the start of the fifth season in 1982 and
remained with the series until it ended in 1985. Shroyer also released a
children's album in 1982. The album was called Back in Hazzard and
featured a cover of Roger Miller's classic, "You Can't Rollerskate In a
Buffalo Herd". He also recorded a song "Children in Need" with fellow
actor Randall Franks for Franks's 2001 CD God's Children. He and Franks
have made personal appearances together. Shroyer remains active
as a character actor. He portrayed University of Alabama coach Paul
"Bear" Bryant in Forrest Gump, Delbert Birdsong in The Rainmaker, and
Governor Jimmie Davis in Ray. He is also a country and gospel singer.
