RIP- Actor Larry Hagman Dies At 81

By Susan Duclos

Quick break from politics with the news that actor Larry Hagman passed away on Friday from complications from his recent battle with cancer.

Larry Hagman, who played the conniving and mischievous J.R. Ewing on the TV show Dallas, died Friday at Medical City in Dallas, of complications from his recent battle with cancer, his family said.

He was 81.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” his family said in a written statement. “Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”

RIP Larry Hagman

While Hagman was better known for his "Dallas" role, my memories are full of him as Major Anthony "Tony" Nelson from "I Dream of Jeannie."
