Star of DALLAS and I DREAM OF JEANNIE, Larry Hagman, has publicly announced that he’s suffering from sort of cancer. He didn’t reveal which type of cancer or the seriousness of the illness, but still it has to be bad news for fans of the veteran actor. The actor survived liver problems back in 1995, and had to undergo a liver transplant procedure. The actor just turned 80 recently.
TNT will begin airing a reboot of the DALLAS series soon, and the 80 year old actor has been assisting that network in this new project. His J.R. Ewing character was involved in a huge event on the Dallas show with a cliffhanger mystery of “Who shot J.R. Ewing” one season, which became a huge ratings grabber event. Larry Hagman is scheduled to appear in at least four episodes of the new reboot of the DALLAS series, and hopefully his cancer treatment goes well for him.
Fans of DALLAS will no doubt enjoy this new version of this classic ABC TV show. Hopefully, J.R. Ewing will be healthy enough to be a major part of this new edition of this show.
