    I was sad to hear the passing of Larry Hagman. I have watched him as J.R. on Dallas as well as on I Dream of Jeannie. He will definitely be missed. I send my love and regards to his friends and family in this time of saddness.

    I am so glad that the “Dallas” relaunch gave Larry Hagman this one last hurrah, one more chance to show the TV audience what a great actor he was. The new series may have been focusing on the next generation, but no one commanded the screen like JR Ewing. While we certainly would have forgiven an 80 year old Larry Hagman for not being quite what he used to be, the man still had it. Even at age 80, Hagman made JR every bit as menacing as he ever was.


  4. Jeffrey says:

    I will be missed that Larry Hagman as greatest icon more like Andy Griffith and Richard Dawson as 2 biggest giants and 1 baddest dirtiest snake rich man..oh,well.. I love larry and his greatest characters Major Nelson and JR Ewing are most unique character of all time down the history. We all love you dearly.
    My favorite moment was WHO Shot JR Ewing?
