    From Deadline…

     Larry Hagman, who played J.R. the conniving, villainous head of the Ewing clan on the TV series Dallas, died today at a Dallas hospital, sources close to the actor told the Dallas Morning News. He was 81. Born in Fort Worth, Hagman was the son of legendary actress Mary Martin. He played the character in the long-running primetime soap from 1978 through 1991 on CBS. He returned last year when the series was resurrected on TNT, focusing on a new generation of Ewings. Prior to Dallas, Hagman’s biggest TV role has been as the astronaut Major Anthony Nelson on ABC’s I Dream Of Jeannie opposite Barbara Eden. Among those confirming the death were Linda Gray’s agent, Jeffrey Lane, who said the actress was at  Hagman’s bedside when he died. Lane said another co-star, Patrick Duffy, was also present. Hagman appeared in Season 1 of the Dallas reboot and had filmed part of Season 2.

    Was shocked when I heard this. I didn’t really watch the first Dallas, but he was amazing in the reboot TNT did over the past summer. Such a good actor, and hate to see him go.

    I am very saddened to learn of the passing of Larry Hagman as I awoke early today. He was an amazing actor and as a long-time avid follower of “Dallas” since the beginning of the series in the late 70s, this really hits me hard. Hagman truly was born to portray the iconic J.R. Ewing and he did it brilliantly! 

    He was outstanding in the new “Dallas” series which TNT bought back earlier this year. He will be missed tremendously, especially for the “Dallas” loyalists like me.

    R.I.P. Mr. Hagman.

    Does anybody know how many episodes he did in the second season of TNT’s Dallas?

    This is truly sad for me. As a kid, I loved I Dream of Jeannie and then I discovered DALLAS and simply loved the show and of course, J.R. Ewing was easily among not only the best villains but simply the best characters in the history of television. The irony is I actually started watching the DVDS of DALLAS yesterday and now hearing he is gone is truly sad.

    May he RIP.
