Love the title: “I’ll be damned”, I always chuckle when he says that on the show. That part of the title I can see EB coming up with. Now the second part of the title “…led me to America’s daytime drama…” that sounds like some CBS PR person wanted that in there. LOL! Sounds like a good read.

OMG! He’s the only person to ever do this, right?

It’s fine that you don’t like him. But it’s always better to focus on the folks you like rather than the ones who irritate you.

I think the character he portrays is played out. I usually find there’s no suspense to the characters actions or mustache twirling. So I fast forward to the characters who do engage me.

I agree. And I, too, chucked at the title. So Eric.

I hope that he’ll be narrating the audiobook. As of now, on Audiobooks.com, the narrator is only listed as “To Be Announced.” Eric Braeden’s life story in his own words will be great, but in his own voice will be even better.

I usually don’t end up reading very much, but I have great respect for Eric Braeden on so many levels, and I am quite excited that he has taken time to write and share his story. I know it will be a fascinating read and I can’t wait!

I don’t give a damn

I’ll be damned… is he that smarmy that he rises above the name dropping of his “wiki” resume

he’s a soap opera actor… the bottom of the barrel… darned tootin he’s less

so he bellows and acts out

he’s character is bigger than he is… so he’ll prop for longevity

I don’t give a ratsw ass that he’s been titanic

he’s sunk to new lows

‘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.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Ken Kercheval in the comment section below.   But first, watch him as Cliff Barnes in this scene from TNT’s Dallas when he sees J.R. for the first time in years!
