DALLAS Sets Air Date For J.R. Ewing's Funeral! Proper Send-Off For Icon Larry Hagman On The Way!

One of the biggest swan songs in television history is now set for March 2013!  The Production team of TNT’s Dallas reboot has revealed to TV Line, that they plan to lay J.R. Ewing to rest in the second season’s eight episode, which is slated to air on March 11th.

This information comes nearly three weeks after the sudden passing of television and Dallas icon, Larry Hagman (J.R.)  Hagman had already completed filming a number of Season 2 episodes prior to his death. Although production was not significantly impacted, producers quickly began crafting a proper sendoff — one that is rumored to feature a number of returning Dallas vets (including several that have not yet been seen on the TNT version.)

We already know that Joan Van Ark (Valene), Ted Shackelford (Gary,) and Charlene Tilton (Lucy) were filming episodes, could they be part of J.R.’s goodbye now?  And, what about the on-going rumors last reported in the U.K. that Victoria Principal is being lured back as Pam, even though the actress has turned down to be part of the reboot previously? Think it could happen now?  Just more rumors? 

How would you have J.R. die on-screen? Natural Causes? Health problem? Murder?  Weigh-in!

J.R. finds out he’s dying (offscreen, of course), and decides to push the issue and set up Cliff for the crime!

Anything but a murder. Been there done that

he should just die in his sleep but then there should be one hell of a reading of the will

I think that Hagman would have preferred to be murdered on the show. It would be a more dramatic exit.

I just wish they could let him off-screen still pulling the strings. I hope the conflict lives on. also it is freaky that this happening around the show’s 35th anniversary.

I would like JR to die of natural causes, not a murder. JR would go out on his own terms!

I do not need to have Victoria Principal/Pam return to the reboot. Sooooo much has happened to Bobby Ewing and such. I cannot think that he and others are over her departure. Let Pam rest. There are new stories to tell. And who cannot love Brenda Strong and Ann Ewing? There is so much press about the young guns, but I am pleased to no end about this actor and character and how she is used in the plots.

I think a murder would be fitting for one of the greatest characters in television history. Yes it was attempted before, why not make it for real with a good old fashion who-did-it story line. If not, natural causes is fine.

No, Victoria Principal and Pam would help with the void and would really be am awesome idea to have her return. Read a suggestion to have Barbara Eden’s LeAnn De La Vega return for the episode. Another great idea!

Let JR be murdered by Sue Ellen or Pam for destroying their lives! BTW I still have to catch up on the new season 1 reboot so I do not know if both ladies still have grudge against JR!

I think Pam and Bobby should be together. Who is this woman he is married to I have nver heard of her. They should at least address the issue of Pam she Christphers mom and pam would not have just walkd out on her son!!! They need to close that chapter or bring her back.

kim
kim

bring pam back!!!!!!

let jr die of natural causes.

JR is such a classical character, and he’s so multi-faceted and complex. He’s so much larger than life. I think the most sensible thing to do is have him die in the most small, unceremonious, and quiet way possible: dies in sleep would probably be best. I also think he should die alone. I like the irony that someone who was guns blazing in secrecy and deception in his life would die by the smallest of things.

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…)

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…)
