DALLAS Jesse Metcalfe Reveals Christopher To Get New Love Interest & Disappointment In Larry Hagman Omission From Emmy In Memorium Tributes!

Jesse Metcalfe attended last night’s HBO Emmy party and spoke with AccessHollywood.com and shared some new information on the upcoming third season of TNT’s Dallas for his character of Christopher Ewing, plus his disappointment at last night’s Emmy telecast that former co-star and TV icon, Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing) was not among those singled out for one of the five In Memorium tributes throughout the 3 hour plus televised event!

On Dallas Jesse revealed, “Christopher’s getting a new love interest. So that’s pretty exciting for me.”  He also said that next week he is excited to get back to work when  Dallas begins principal shooting for its third season!

Now on to the controversy that Hagman was not chosen by the Emmy producers to part of the five In Memorium tributes that aired on the telecast last night.  Metcalfe said, “Obviously I certainly thought that Larry Hagman should have had a special tribute in that five that were honored.  He’s an iconic TV actor, and not many people have made a character as famous as he did, so I thought he was sort of passed over a bit,” Jesse said.

As far as the new way the Emmys handled the Memorium tributes, Jesse related, “I thought it was very moving, I thought it was very heartfelt, I just wanted to see a friend and someone who deserved to be honored get honored.”

Watch the clip of Jesse talking about Dallas season three and Larry Hagman after the jump! Then, let us know, are you intrigued to hear Christopher has a new love interest?  Do you agree with Jesse’s sentiments on the omission of Larry Hagman from the Emmy In Memorium tributes last night, other than him being in the clip package with many other recently deceased performers?

Yes, Hagman should have had a special tribute on the Emmys. Look forward to the third season of DALLAS!

Frankly although the five that got special tributes were moving and well done, I just feel it was wrong to single them out from the rest of members who passed away and did equally wonderful work. By singling out a few, you get this why them, why not these people debate going out– and before you know it everyone will want their own special tribute. They should keep the In memory format the way it was before, everyone getting the same amount of time and attention or in Hollywood terms, equal billing. If they truly feel someone who passed away that year is deserving of special recognition for their work they should give them a honorary Emmy posthumously that has some form criteria to be met so it doesn’t become a popularity thing.

Mary, I agree. No one should have been singled out. It’s dangerous and offensive. Now we have Larry Hagman fans upset, Jack Klugman’s sons upset; who knows who else. Everyone who knew those who passed on would have felt their person deserved a special tribute and they’d probably be right. But time is of the essence and a segment on each person would take all night. I think the producers need to stick to the traditional tribute model and then everyone gets happy. JMHO.

Jack Klugman was another reason I shut it off before it ended. I think the actors who have been around and made a contribution to TV should have been reconized. The people running these shows are BRAINDEAD. let them watch.

How the f*** did Larry Hagman not get included? I didn’t watch it but I hear only 5 were focused on. Why??? Why not focus on any set and just show pictures and clips from actors that have passed like the Oscars did???? Did they not realize how huge Larry was? Dallas in the 80’s was must see tv, and he was famous before that for I Dream of Jeannie. someone really dropped the ball with this year’s memorium. I think they did the same to Jean Stapleton. Hello? She was Edith on All In The Family, a groundbreaking show at it’s time!

No Jean had a special tribute given by Rob Reiner and it was touching and very moving.

Thanks for updating me Mary. I’m so glad Jean was included. But no Larry Hagman???? That’s absurd of them!

Both Larry(who also played Ed Gibson on Edge of Night in the early 60s) and Jean shouldve been included because of their long history to television and connection to two popular iconic shows ‘Dallas’ and ‘All In The Family’. Its crazy things like this why i rarely watch award shows these days!!!

She was one of the five. Rob Reiner did Jean Stapleton’s Memorium on the telecast.

Since he did act in movies, perhaps the oscars will make up for this giant mistake that the television industry made.

What a joke the emmys are.Its just a tribute to the who I met your mother actor. Forgot his name. He sings , he dances , he was on almost all of it. Just made me remember why I avoid them. Larry Hagman was tv. he had two iconic shows. he was someone everyone recognized. he wasn’t the only one. This zac guy was what On one show they did him. I had to listen to his jokes, his dances and when the actors who won were told to shut up and get off, I turned the channel .The emmys are a joke.

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

Photo Credit: WireImage

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…)

We all loved Josh Henderson’s portrayal of John Ross Ewing on TNT’s defunct revival of the classic primetime soap, Dallas.

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). When Megan’s audition leads to a first date with Kylie, she’s presented with a contract that could change her life forever. But will she accept The Arrangement?   Michael Vartan and Lexa Doig also star in the series.

On his official Instagram account, Henderson shared his enthusiasm for the reveal of his next role: “Been waiting for bout 4 months till it became official.. And So excited today cuz I can finally announce I’ve got a new show coming !! 1st season will be 10 episodes on E! More to come soon.” (more…)
