So sad that JR and Larry have passed away. I am exited fo the retun of Dallas, though. It’s a fantastic series!


JR had a kid with Callie….another son, right?


I forgot about that. It would also be great if they could get the man who played JR’s oldest son James…or at least mention him.


Very sad over LH’s death. I hope the show will continue with its current success.


I agree Sean. One thing Larry was always right about that show. He said that even though the show had been off the air for 20+ years, the fan base was always there. He was right about that. I’m glad he lived long enough to see it happen


Yes i am very much looking forward to it especially now that Mandy and Cally are going to be apart of it. It’s sad because we know it’s not a fake funeral. He’s really gone. I hope TNT really uses these old characters well for the episode to give him a proper farewell. it would be great if it could do flashbacks too.

THE most eagerly awaited episode since, well, J.R. was shot.


I watched most of the piliot episode and was not impressed. I guess I expected it to be more like the original series. Didn’t not watch any more episodes, but since so many of the original cast will be returning for the tribute to Larry Hagman, I will mark my calendar to also be in attendence.


Barbara, I wasn’t too impressed with the pilot episode either, but I kept watching and the show really got good. If there’s any way you can catch the first season, you should. I’m sure you will get hooked 😉


It is out on DVD, now.


Thanks, maybe I will try to see the 1st season. Thanks Don, will check it out on DVD


So Sad about Mr. Hagman’s passing. As for DALLAS, I will be very interested in seeing how things play out. Loved sesaon one and hope they can continue to sustain it.


These details are why the DALLAS reboot works for me. The show will have these new characters and plot lines and be different than the original, of course (it has to be)… but… this attention to the histories of the family and the core characters is important and appreciated by this fan.

We all will die some day, but some… like Larry Hagman and JR Ewing… you thought would go on forever. In a way, they do.





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…)
