Reporting Leigh Ann Adam
The popular A&E reality series Duck Dynasty is added another cast member, and surprisingly this one won’t have a beard.
E!Online is reporting that when the show returns for it’s fourth season, it will return with a fourth Robertson brother.
The beardless, Alan Roberston, who is actually the eldest son, is a 47-year-old Louisiana pastor who will be joining the family business, Duck Commander. Alan will take on the role of PR manager for the famous duck call manufacturer.
Alan spoke about the fact that he doesn’t have a beard to the New York Post. Saying, “The beards are so iconic.” Adding that he lets his facial hair grow during hunting season.
Robertson also explained why he just know joining the show, “What I do for our church—you see, it’s a pretty good-sized church—impacts a lot of people, but because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people. Any person that’s an evangelist, that’s what you want to do, so I had to give this up for something possibly bigger.”
He also realizes how much this will change his life going forward, “All this time I’ve been flying under the radar; I can go to Starbucks and get Mama coffee. That is about to change.”
