‘Dallas’ Star Larry Hagman (September 21, 1931 – November 23, 2012) Dead at 81

Larry Hagman, best known for his work as Tony Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie and J.R. Ewing on Dallas (which was just brought back by TNT in June of this year), passed away at a Texas hospital surrounded by family and friends yesterday after a 13-month battle with throat cancer.

“Larry Hagman was my best friend for 35 years. He was the Pied Piper of life and brought joy to everyone he knew,” Hagman’s television wife Linda Gray, who convinced him to eat vegan as a health precaution, told People. “He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the fullest.”

Warner Brothers released their own statement explaining that the “sad news will be incorporated into the storyline” as Dallas progresses.
