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.”

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!

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.

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.

‘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.

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.
