DALLAS Icon Larry Hagman diagnosed with Cancer!

Just as TNT’s Dallas reboot is starting production, it has been announced today that Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing) has been diagnosed with cancer.  However, doctors have told him it’s a highly treatable form of the disease.

Hagman, who turned 80 last month, is set to report to work on Monday, October 17. Hagman is confirmed to appear in at least the first four episodes, and it’s likely he’ll appear in more beyond that. According to TV Guide, “It’s unclear whether he’ll need to take any time off while undergoing treatment. Insiders say there’s a chance that he’ll be able to continue on the show in some sort of capacity throughout the first season, which wraps production at the end of January.”

Hagman  released his own statement today saying, “As J.R. I could get away with anything — bribery, blackmail and adultery. But I got caught by cancer. I do want everyone to know that it is a very common and treatable form of cancer. I will be receiving treatment while working on the new Dallas series. I could not think of a better place to be than working on a show I love, with people I love. Besides, as we all know, you can’t keep J.R. down!”

Let’s keep sending good thoughts Larry’s way as he battles this!

Good luck Mr. Hagman! Can’t wait for the Dallas Series to start up again! I have watched you all my life, first I dream of Jeanne and then Dallas. I have really missed the Dallas series!

Larry Hagman is a fighter, just like his real-life mother–Broadway legend Mary Martin (Peter Pan, South Pacific). He’s also been a liver transplant survivor for the past 15-16 years!

From one Larry to another, all the best. You definitely have the right attitude to fight this.

I wish you well Mr Hagman. I watched JR through every season he is the character we all love to hate. Take care and keep JR going for the long haul in our new Dallas. <3

Y&R and Dallas Alum, Oscar Winner George Kennedy Has Died

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.

After the jump, watch George Kennedy as Albert on The Young and the Restless in scenes with Eric Braeden and Joshua Morrow (Nick).  Then share your thoughts on the passing of this talented actor in the comment section below! (more…)

Since Dallas was never able to find a suitable home at another network, Henderson had teased via social media some time ago that he had something big in the works.

Now it is revealed! On Friday, E! announced plans for its second scripted series following The Royals.  The new show is called The Arrangement and stars Henderson alongside Christina Evangelista. The story revolves around a young actress named Megan Morrison (Evangelista), who auditions for a huge summer movie alongside top Hollywood action movie star Kyle West (Henderson).
