Yeah, too bad he didn't die of a heart attack or stroke or liver failure instead. Then this would be good news.

But, seriously, the man was 80 years old. Cancer at that age is simply one of the possible side effects of aging and the body shutting down. It's sad for his family but it's no more tragic than other way someone can die of old age.

Terrible news. I thought his cancer was in remission and he was doing better.

RIP

Hagman had been diagnosed with throat cancer, and received treatment during filming of the first season of the new Dallas, and had finished treatment with an excellent prognosis, so yes this was surprising.

Explain to me, what you think the word 'subtle' means?

Sad. Very sad.

Wonder how much filming of season two he had done ? Hope they can use it - I can't think of a better tribute.

I'll have a bourbon and branch please darlin'. Here's to you Larry !

Agree 110%.

I never watched Dallas, but I sure watched "I Dream of Jeannie". Larry Hagman had a good run as far as creating a pair of iconic TV characters to entertain all of us. R.I.P.

The clip of the pilot episode posted here threw me for a minute.... especially Jeannie's 'purple' bottle. Tony's mission on Stardust One was a B&W episode and the bottle was a smokey green with gold pattern of twining leaves for the entire first season... no purple until Season 2.

Im glad I could help you learn a new word, today, but what does increasing your word power have to do with Hagman?

I've been trying to look into this - there doesn't seem to be any concrete reports of how many episodes were in the can. It premieres in late January and that's only two months from now... dare I say it, it's safe to say that he'd be there for the first few... maybe even half.

I wonder if... in his state of health if he and the producers didn't anticipate any of this and film a video will for the show or something... imagine if the show were to continue for years? I'm sure his (the actor's) eventual death had come up in logistical planning. I'm sure the writers are scrambling now.

Just so sad to have it happen right now. But I've read that Larry was happy to have his family all together for Thanksgiving...

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

I found this...

Filming was in progress on the sixth episode of season two, which is set to begin airing Jan. 28, the network said.

There was no immediate comment from Warner or TNT on how the series would deal with Hagman’s loss.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

It's highly likely that the writers of the series had built in a contingency plan in case something like this happened. Showrunners have done same for far less major a concern. Whether or not the contingency plan could work/be implemented after episode 206 is the big question.

But now I'm also just as bummed we won't get to see JR's further schemes this season.

Here's a video clip I've posted before, "The best of JR Ewing"

Nobody got shoved into the Southfork swimming pool last season, did they? They really need to bring that back.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

Full disclosure: I never was a DALLAS fan, so J.R. as a character never caught much of my attention. But I was a younger age when I DREAM OF JEANNIE came out and very much enjoyed the bumblings of Majors Nelson and Healy.

Hagman's early career has a standout role as President Henry Fonda's interpreter in FAIL-SAFE. He also had a terrific part as a
closeted Democratic rival to John Travolta in PRIMARY COLORS. In the 70s he even directed the little-seen sequel to THE BLOB.

But despite all that, I think we could best honor Mr. Hagman by taking his expert advice from 1978's SUPERMAN. I hereby suggest everybody reading this post give the person you love a vigorous chest massage, followed by extensive mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If Larry was willing to do it for Valerie Perrine, how can we do no less in his memory?

Rest in peace, sir.....
