I was a big Dallas fan and watched it whenever I got the chance. I always looked forward to finding out who JR was going to cheat out of what next.
Larry Hagman played a number of other roles, including the bumbling astronaut in ‘I Dream of Jeanie’. A few years ago he played an eccentric Judge in New Orleans in a short lived cop drama. I did not like the show very much but I watched it every week just to see Larry and find out what outrageous ruling he was going to make next. Back in 1984, when I was living in Dallas, I actually had a ‘JR Ewing for President” pin and wore it proudly (Reagan was running for re-election that year so no one really thought I was voting for JR).
From everything I have read, Larry Hagman was a good decent man with a good, generous heart and a great sense of humor. I’m sure he will be deeply missed by his family and friends. I know he is already missed by one of his fans.
Live Long and Prosper...
