Larry Hagman says he has cancer. He also says that it is a highly treatable form of cancer and that nothing will keep him from reprising his role as JR Ewing when production starts this Monday. With what has happened this season to dramas, I am a little worried about the reboot of Dallas, but it does have lots of the original stars. The problem is the younger cast they cast to fill in all the holes are mostly a bunch of unknowns who would work cheap. Here is what Larry had to say to TV Guide. “As J.R. I could get away with anything — bribery, blackmail and adultery. But I got caught by cancer. 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 Dallas series. I could not think of a better place to be than working on a show I love, with people I love. Besides, as we all know, you can't keep J.R. down!”
Get better soon Larry.
