1. ABC is reporting on his death :(

Larry Hagman, who emerged in the 1960s as the slightly befuddled astronaut in "I Dream of Jeannie," then became a major star in the 1980s primetime soap "Dallas," playing evil oil baron J.R. Ewing, has died. He was 81.

Rest in Peace Larry

3. This is so sad. I really enjoyed everything he did.

I was a big fan of Dallas and always thought he was the best villian, ever, on American television. And, let's face it, he grew the most impressive set of eyebrows, ever.

4. I enjoyed his performance as Buck the translator in "Fail-Safe" (1964).

5. Shameful low number of responses here...he was a brilliant actor...

Never got the credit he deserved...also a very green person. RIP, Larry.

6. Loved him...not only for his roles....

...I saw an interview, years ago, it may have been Oprah, where he was talking about a near death experience he had. I was going through a rough time totally caused by religious dogma (mormon bs), and he said that he had done some really bad things in his life, things he wasnt proud of, and was worried about what came next...then had his nde...and said that unless you are a truly evil person....you have nothing to worry about from death...the love and light, the sense of well being..of goodness (all paraphrasing, of course).....That is another thing I will remember Larry Hagman for...for giving me that small bit of peace, amongst the bullshit fear of/in religion.

9. I'm sure he would have been proud to know that he

gave you the inspiration you needed to feel better about your situation. Outside of his acting and being part of my life in that regard, I was glad he was an investor and supporter of renewable energy. The juxtaposition of JR Ewing hawking solar panels was brilliant.

7. Godspeed Maj. Nelson. I was always

a fan of Larry Hagman. He could do it all from funny to dramatic. He made JR Ewing a globally recognized charater. He was a champion of renewable energy. He was a good man with a decades-long good reputation.

I will miss him and remember him.
