Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman will be returning to the hit tv show “Dallas” the famed Southfork Ranch Patrick Duffy, now 63, reprises his role as the “good” brother, Bobby Ewing, and Linda Gray, still stunning at 71, returns as J.R.’s ex-wife, Sue Ellen.
In real life, these three are as thick as thieves, having been, in Duffy’s words, “best friends for 35 years.” They don’t see each other that often: Hagman’s in Malibu, Duffy’s on an Oregon ranch and Gray lives outside of Los Angeles. But over the years they have called each other as rumors surfaced that this or that producer wanted to remake “Dallas.”
Gray remembers every painful detail. “About two years ago, the three of us got a call: Would you be interested in coming back? And we said, ‘Of course.’ And nothing happened. And then we heard it was going to be a movie and that John Travolta was going to be J.R., and J.Lo was going to be Sue Ellen.
So the press would say: Who do you want to play Sue Ellen? And I said, ‘That’s insulting! I want to play Sue Ellen!’ And Patrick and Larry said the same thing. Finally, I got so upset, I said, ‘You know what? If they can do in two hours what we did in 13 years, God bless them.’ ” According to, USA Weekend/New York Post.
According to E! Online, Legendary Mega-Star Larry Hagman has announced he has cancer. Hagman was the star of “I Dream Of Jeannie” and the 80’s smash hit “Dallas.” The ratings sky-rocketed with the cliff hanger “Who Shot J.R?”
Hagman made a statement “As J.R. I could get away with anything—bribery, blackmail and adultery. But I got caught by cancer,” Hagman said in a statement. “I do want everyone to know that it is a very common and treatable form of cancer. I will be receiving treatment while working on the new Dallasseries.” According to E!Online.
