RIP Larry Hagman, 'Dallas' Star, Dead at 81

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.

Larry made Dallas a hit, I will miss him.

1. Hagman was a good liberal and advocate for many excellent causes.

Here's Larry on GW Bush: "A sad figure, not too well educated, who doesn't get out of America much. He's leading the country towards fascism."

2. Knew he was a Dem, wasn't aware he said that, thanks

heard this morning that the character JR was meant to be a small role, Larry turned it into a household name.

7. It's hard to think of him as a Democrat. J.R. Ewing seemed like the ultimate Repubican slimeball.

Rest in Peace Mr. Hagman.

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

8. You ever want to see some good acting,

go get a copy of "Harry and Tonto". LH has a relatively small role, but you gotta see him play against Art Carney. I was floored how good an actor Hagman really was.

Found something at 2:01 (BTW, the lady sitting next to Art Carney is Sally Mars, Lenny Bruce's mom . . . )
