Entertainment Weekly Featuring DALLAS Cover Story Out This Friday!

On this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly, the pop culture magazine explores TV’s summer success story of TNT’s reboot of Dallas, which already has been renewed for its second season, and we are only half way through season one!

In a preview of the EW feature, several of the leading cast members chime in with some interesting and fun quotes!  Patrick Duffy (Bobby) laughs “It’s almost dream-like!”  Duffy along with Larry Hagman and Linda Gray, and newcomers Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, and Julie Gonzalo, anchor the new incarnation. “And God if I wake up and find out I’m playing some gnarly grandpa in a sitcom somewhere, I’m going to be so pissed off,” Duffy adds. (And for those pissed off Bobby and Pam fans, executive producer Cynthia Cidre explains why she didn’t want to bring back Victoria Principal. “No, no, no, no,” she says. “What angle could I possibly play in the relationship?”)

The dream took a nightmarish turn two days before Hagman was due on set when he called his long-time best friend Duffy with news of his cancer. “I told him, ‘You bastard.  I just got a good job and you’re going to bail on me,’” says Duffy. “The nerve of you dying at the apex of my career. Unacceptable.’”  Hagman worked through his entire chemotherapy and radiation treatment, infusing J.R. with the same gleeful mischief audiences love to hate. Shortly before the show’s premiere, his doctor pronounced him cancer-free. “Hagman looked me in the eye and said ‘Whaddya think, 10 seasons?’” says TNT president Michael Wright.

For exclusive dish on the various twists and turns still in store for the embattled Ewing family, plus an interview with Hagman’s hard-working eyebrow wrangler, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday, June 20.

So soapers what is your favorite part of the new Dallas? Let us know!

I am loving the new Dallas. I am not sure what I like most. I love that JR is the same is always was. I love the rivalry between the boys and the love triangle with Alayna played by the beautiful and often over looked talent Jordana Brewster. Now I would really like to see them bring on Gary and Val for a backdoor pilot of a rebooted KNOTTS LANDING. The only complaint that I do have for DALLAS is there is not enough Sue Ellen.

I like Josh Henderson as John Ross and I like Patrick Duffy as a new and improved Bobby.

Sue Ellen looks like only 5yrs passed so beautiful. Fun to see next generations up to?? Love seeing Cliff & JR wondering if another fight is brewing. Really hopes back long term.

I love the show since 1981, when she came the first time to Germany. I was very young and beautiful – now I´m just beautiful. 😉
Dallas is modern and nostalgic. The familiar and new faces playing together fantastically! The cast is perfect! Thank you for the wonderful comeback!
Southfork is timeless….

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.
