Re: RIP Larry Hagman

As far as non-Dallas & non-I Dream Of Jeanie roles, I liked him in Blake Edwards' SOB, one of my favorite 1970's movies.

Not a starring role, but fun anyway.

I'll miss him too, Dallas isn't the same without his scheming. OK Dallas, time to get a Larry Hagman as J.R. statue or lets rebuild Big Tex in his image.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

Well, this was kind of unexpected, since he seemed to be doing well. Very sad. I was never a big Dallas fan, but I was definitely a fan of I Dream Of Jeannie and his Major Nelson (and what a team he and Bill Daily made). The fact that his two iconic roles were the extremes of slapstick comedy and malevolent drama shows what range and presence he had as an actor.

RIP, Larry Hagman.

This sucks...

How would people react to a recast of J.R. I wonder? Tough shoes to fill for another actor but it's been done before.

^ I'm very glad that the reboot was abandoned (John Travolta was about the worst idea I've ever heard to play JR) but I always thought Connor Trinneer could pull it off. As for who could play JR in the current series, if recasting was ever considered? I have no idea.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

It's already been reported that the producers are moving ahead with a storyline that will "give his iconic character a proper send-off," so it looks like recasting J.R. is out of the question... and in my not terribly humble opinion, that's as it should be.

Indeed. I mean you just couldn't in any sense simply recast the iconic role and pretend nothing happened. The real question is in how they'll bring the magnificent bastard-ness now?

I remember him from I Dream of Jeannie more than Dallas. It was a lot of fun watching him on both shows. He will be missed.

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.
Larry was a great actor in both series. He will missed by all.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

Very sad news.

I loved watching Dallas in the 80s. It was a show I watched regularly with my father as it typically started just as he arrived home from work, so it has a special place in my heart. JR Ewing was such a brilliant antihero: calculating, ruthless, relishing his notoriety and generally living a very twisted yet still enjoyable to watch version of the American Dream. Larry Hagman was born to play that role; he carried it off perfectly, bringing a warmth to the character. A couple of other posts call JR a Magnificent Bastard and I have to agree; he personifies the trope to a tee.

I never really got into the new Dallas, but I hope they come up with a fitting tribute to the character. Maybe JR could meet the Devil again, and this time carry out a hostile takeover of Hell...

As for Larry Hagman, who always seemed to carry his own personal difficulties with charm and humour, I hope he rests in peace. Thank you for all the great memories!

I believe the plan all along was for John Ross to be groomed as the new JR for this series. Hagman was to have a smaller role in the series to begin with.(made smaller last season due to the cancer). I for one will continue to watch. I enjoyed it last season. Yes Hagman had much to do with that but the eps he was not in were good as well. Maybe Cliff Barnes will take over some of that basterdness you speak of??? I hope people continue to watch because the ensemble deserves a chance. I am sure Hagman would agree.

Re: RIP Larry Hagman

That certainly seemed to be the direction they were heading in the season finale, with that last shot of John Ross and J.R. together at the old Ewing Oil offices.
