Dang! There goes a sequil.

You may have disliked the character, J. R. Ewing, but Larry Hagman was a great actor and made that character come alive.

Larry Hagman was also very into solar energy and living "off the grid." There is a HUGE solar array on his property in Ojai, and he supplies power to at least 10 other households as well as his own.

In real life, Larry Hagman was nothing like J.R. Ewing. But, as JemDandy said, he certainly did play the part well!

Rest in peace, Larry.

I loved him both on "I Dream of Jeannie" and of course, "Dallas". I didn't realize it until I read about him that he was an AF vet. He really was a very good actor.

Oh, that's a shame. RIP Larry.
I think there was talk of another year of Dallas, wasn't there?
I don't think anyone could play JR like he could. He nailed it.

That's terrible! I loved him. "Dallas" will not be the same without him, and that's my favorite show of all time. I know he was a good guy, a devoted husband, and a great actor--but he certainly was convincing as the bad J.R. RIP, Larry.

He was an evil conniving character. Says a lot about his talent since in real life he was such a great guy...family man, conservationist. He gave me many years of entertainment over the decades.

I read he had already filmed 6 of the 15 new years episodes. I am sure his passing will be written into the script some how. I really enjoyed the new Dallas.

No one will ever be able to play the part of JR like he did. He WAS JR!..
He'll be missed. RIP.
