Larry Hagman Dies; Dallas Star was 81
Larry Hagman, a veteran actor best known for his role as J.R. Ewing on Dallas, has passed away. He was 81.
The star created the role on the original series and reprised it last year when TNT rebooted the popular drama. He announced in the summer of 2011 that he was being treated for cancer, and then followed that up a few months ago by telling the world he was in "remission."
