Yesterday, Patrick Duffy (Bobby, Dallas) issued a statement on the death of his longtime co-star and friend Larry Hagman.  For more than 14 seasons Duffy and Hagman ignited the screen as the Ewing Brothers on CBS’ original Dallas, then returned to the highly successful TNT reboot of Dallas last year and were in the midst of filming season two.

Duffy stated: “Friday, I lost one of the greatest friends ever to grace my life. The loneliness is only what is difficult, as Larry’s peace and comfort is always what is important to me, now as when he was here. He was a fighter in the gentlest way, against his obstacles and for his friends. I wear his friendship with honor.”

Hagman died Friday afternoon and lost his battle with cancer surrounded by family, friends including Duffy and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) in a Dallas Hospital.  

As fans worldwide continue to mourn the loss of Hagman, it is so touching to know how close Duffy and Hagman, as well as Gray, were to each other up until the end.

I’m in the midst of watching the Dallas show in DVD. I bought the entire series. My wife and I watch one episode each night, and are just starting season 7. With Larry gone, I feel like I lost a close, personal friend. All of his family and friends have my deepest sympathy.

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…)
