Looks like Jesse Metcalfe will get off on the ranch and have some fun! The talented star of Dallas, (where he is currently airing as Christopher Ewing in the second half of season three) is set to make a guest appearance on CBS’ comedy 2 Broke Girls!

According to TV Line, Jesse will be playing “a lust interest for Kat Dennings’ impoverished waitress! Metcalfe’s character is Max’s new weekly booty call (their relationship is so casual that she doesn’t even know his name).”  Metcalfe thus far is booked for only one episode.

Soap fans have to give it to the former men from NBC’s Passions who have found continued success after their first major television break.  Metcalfe along with Justin Hartley, Galen Gering, recent Daytime Emmy winner Eric Martsolf, Ryan McPartlin, and several others, have gone on to star in primetime or daytime series after getting their start in the witchy soap town of Harmony!

So, what do you think of Jesse booking 2 Broke Girls?  And the success of all the men from the defunct soap Passions?  Let us know!

He’s my favorite on the new DALLAS. Please oh please, let the show be renewed for another season!

2BG is pretty stale at this point, but seeing Jesse will get me to tune in. Never watched Passions but apparently the casting director had a good eye, not to mention a fun job!

I agree with you, Charday…. Jesse should be the lead on Dallas.

He can’t be dead on Dallas. Say it ain’t so. If they get a season 4, he will be back.

I’m sure he’s probably a great guy but I’m sorry I as do many of my friends who watch Dallas think he’s a terrible actor. Just the way we feel,

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

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.
