Former soap hunk, Jesse Metcalfe, best known for his role on Passions and on primetime for Desperate Housewives has landed the plum role of Bobby and Pam Ewing’s adopted son Christopher on TNT’s upcoming remake of the nighttime soap classic, Dallas,  According to Deadline.com, “Metcalfe was one of the two finalists for the role of Christopher, along with Alex Russell.

The updated Dallas, from Cane creator Cynthia Cidre and Warner Horizon, centers on the offspring of bitter rivals and brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing – J.R.’s son, John Ross (Josh Henderson) and  his cousin Christopher (Metcalfe) – who clash over the future of the Ewing dynasty while the fate of Southfork itself weighs in the balance. Also set for the pilot are original Dallas stars Larry Hagman as J.R., Patrick Duffy as Bobby and Linda Gray as Sue Ellen, as well as Jordana Brewster as Elena, who is locked into a love triangle with Christopher and John.

So it looks like things are heating up in Southfork again!

Has “Chase” been canceled?

Probably which is sad and that is why I didn’t start watching any new network shows this season. The cable shows don’t usually get canceled because they have more money than network so this Dallas show should do well on TNT. Althought I like Jesse Metcalfe, I don’t know if he is the right actor for this role but I sure hope he does a good job.

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…)
