Keck's Exclusives: Larry Hagman Confirmed for TNT's New Dallas

Larry Hagman

After stories floated that TNT had failed to reach a financial agreement with Larry Hagman to reprise his role of J.R. Ewing in an update of the 1978-91 primetime soap Dallas — and would move forward with an altered script that would write out the popular character — both parties expressed hope that the conflict could be resolved.  

And now I'm happy to report that a deal's been struck! Yep, I just got off the phone with Larry, who tells me he's in!  "I haven't signed any contract but I gave them my commitment verbally," says the star, who'll turn 80 this year. "I just told them I'd do it and my word's good!"

The updated pilot... read more

Keck's Exclusives: Dallas Without J.R.? "News to me," Says Stunned Larry Hagman

Larry Hagman

That report that came out Thursday — that TNT had failed to come to financial terms with Larry Hagman to join the cast of its Dallas reboot and was proceeding with a revised script that featured the Ewings without their patriarch? Don't take that to the bank just yet, darlins'.

I just got off the phone with Larry who said all this comes as news to him. I read him the report, which left the 79-year-old TV legend stunned and nearly speechless. "I hadn't heard about that, huh!" said Larry. "That's really interesting. We were talking about money, but I didn't know it was going to come to a crashing halt like that. You got a scoop for whatever that's worth: Larry Hagman doesn't know what's going on!"

What this sounds like to me is a scare tactic — not unlike what Lorimar pulled back in the summer of 1980 after J.R. Ewing's infamous shooting when the production company threatened to replace Larry with actor Robert Culp if he didn't return from Europe, where the savvy businessman had escaped while his team negotiated a new contract... read more

Premise: Power, passion and duplicity drive this landmark saga set at the Southfork ranch, home of the oil-rich Ewing clan and ground zero for prime-time soaps in the late '70s and through the '80s. The most successful prime-time soap in TV history, `Dallas' spawned the popular `Knots Landing' and inspired a plethora of clones, most notably its chief ratings challenger, `Dynasty.' It also ushered in the use of cliffhanger endings to bolster interest and ratings with its 1980 `Who Shot J.R.?' episode.
