Jesse Metcalfe On DALLAS Finale & A Victoria Principal Return: "It's Possibly Going to Happen for Season Three, But Not Season Two!"



Jesse Metcalfe (Christopher Ewing) visited Access Hollywood Live to discuss the upcoming Dallas season finale next Monday night, what fans can expect when they learn who killed J.R.,  what it was like working with the late Larry Hagman (J.R.) and the question on everyone’s mind, is Victoria Principal returning as Christopher’s mother, Pam for the finale?

Right up front, Metcalfe was asked by Access Hollywood hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, if Pam is back for the finale and he related, “It’s a possibility for Season 3, but, it’s not gonna happen in Season 2!”.   That may be surprising for many to hear, in light of Bush recalling seeing a woman on this weeks episode whose chin bears the resemblance to Victoria Principal’s!

As fans of the show know, Christopher got a call from a bank in Switzerland about a woman believed to be his mother, and he exited the episode on the way to see if the woman in the hat and sunglasses really is her.  “Christopher definitely explores that lead. He takes off to Zurich, Switzerland, to find out if that is in fact his mother,” Jesse said.

As to what is going to go down on the two-hour TNT finale, Jesse revealed, “A lot unfolds as part of J.R.’s master plan. It’s all kind of surrounding his murder, and part of that mystery is possibly finding my mother and getting her shares of Barnes Global so we can possibly take over that company.”

Watch Jesse’s Access Hollywood Live interview after the jump, and let us know if you think Victoria Principal is still going to make an appearance on the finale, or if you do believe Metcalfe? And who do you think killed J.R?  Let us know!

I believe in miracles!

I believe in miracles to, But I don’t want her breaking up Anne and Bobby.

I hope it is the original Pam. Victoria Principle 🙂 I love this show! Revenge is another great great show!

I made guesses b4 from a possible Kristen return to finishing him off to J.R. staging his own death(he was secretly dieing?) to just frame one of his enemies but i really dont want to know at this point. I like the suspense of not knowing, and waiting for seaon 3!

But i still hope for a Pam return no matter who plays her!

I just love this show….Would love to Pamela come back.

Come on Metcalfe, don’t go teasing us die-hard fans with promises you can’t keep. You weren’t even alive when “Dallas” premiered in 1978 so it’s unlikely you know the gravity and importance of Pamela’s presence even if you watched the DVD’s a million times over.

As for Victoria Principal herself, she recently stated that she would never return to this version of “Dallas” and that her May, 1987 car crash put an exclamation mark on the end of Pamela Barnes Ewing.

If Pam comes back, it will be a re-cast and sadly it will probably be an actress in her 40’s or early-50’s and not Pam’s true age … early-60’s. Hollywood is so ageist.

Joshua I agree VP was Pam and if you can’t convince her to come out of retirement then leave it alone. Here is a thought send FV/GH/EP to ask her he has a way of pulling them out of mothballs.

As Chandler would say “Can this show be any better”??? Loving Dallas!!!

Great show! Hope she comes back, but I wamt Amne with Bobby

Loving the new DALLAS and can’t wait for tonight’s season finale. Has it been officially announced that DALLAS has been renewed for season three???

Victoria Princpal has said on numerous occasions that she will not reprise her role as Pam Ewing. So unless she has a change of heart (and they change the story line that *******************SPOILERS***************************************************

Pam didn’t die many years ago from cancer. She’s not going to show up.

Would absolutely love to see Pam (VP) come back! It would serve extremely well with an Anne/Bobby twist as well as another twist with the Barnes & Ewing fued. VP was great in that role and would be difficult to see anyone else in it! Come on Victoria please come back! Though I do like Anne and Bobby together! Can you imagine Cliff turning to Pam to help him gain back control of Barnes Global…..oh the things that can be done with this story line and her return.


Lifetime’s ‘Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas’ Brings Epic Food Fight and “Slapfest Coup de Grâce”

Get ready for the feuding soap opera divas, when five actresses known for their signature primetime and daytime roles are brought together in Lifetime’s new holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas.

Saturday night, December 2nd on Lifetime (8pm ET/7PM CT) marks the highly-anticipated holiday movie premiere featuring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing), Nicolette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest et al), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Here’s what we do know! In story, five alums from the long-running soap, The Great Lakes reunite for a live Christmas finale. Uh-oh!  Now take a look at the backstory of the colorful cast of characters (pay special attention to the clever twists on the actresses names!)

LAUREN EWING (Linda Gray) “Everyone thinks I’m so damn good all the time,” confesses the junk food-loving Lauren of her second act as a lifestyle guru. “I don’t know how Gwenyth Paltrow does it!”

DANA CUNNINGHAM (Donna Mills) Now a sitcom mom, she’s yet to make amends to ex-bestie Juliette after abruptly leaving the soap back in the day. Not that she hasn’t tried: “When I thought the world was going to end in Y2K,” Dana says, “I reached out to her, and she never called me back.”

LILY MARLOWE (Loni Anderson) After replacing Dana on ‘Great Lakes’, Lily never again found a role to win her acclaim. “What do I have to show for (my career)? An arc on  For the People – Shonda Rhimes’ only flop!”

JULIETTE MATHESON (Nicollette Sheridan) “She left me for L.A.,” the party girl turned fashion mogul recalls of Dana’s betrayal. Will their feud derail the entire event?

MARGEAUX ROBERTS (Morgan Fairchild) “Fasten your face-lifts, ladies, it’s gonna be a bumpy weekend!” The sassy grande dame of ‘Great Lakes’ sees the Juliette-Dana beef as the perfect escape from her own domestic drama.

Now, making this all the more hysterical is the director of The Great Lakes reunion special, which makes the five women live under the same roof, is its former child star Alex, who has gotten his ex-girlfriend, Nell to direct the finale. Meanwhile, in the subplot. the ‘Ladies of the ’80s’ come up with a plan to get Alex and Nell back together.

As with any good soap opera, there is a major food fight. Linda Gray shared with USA Today ,”The food fight was one take. And it was fabulous.” And of course, their is a bitch-fest slap-fest. Morgan Fairchild revealed, “Oh honey, we all got ours in. Mine was a simple, ‘How dare you?’ with a slap. But I was hoping for a punch.”

The movie’s EP, Larry Thompson, who is a Hollywood manager and has Donna Mills as a client, said that the entire scene peaks with the”slapfest coup de grâce.” What is that exactly? That is when Donna Mills pushes Nicollette Sheridan into a pool in a nod to Dynasty’s Lily bond battle between Dynasty’s Alexis (Joan Collins) and Krystle (Linda Evans).

In case you missed it previously, check out the trailer for Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas below, also starring Patrika Darbo, Alec Mapa, Mills real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, and Christopher Atkins with theme song by Tiffany.

Now let us know, will you be tuning in to the movie for a premise that should delight many a longtime soap fan? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
