Morning Man Classic: Larry Hagman!
Sad about Larry Hagman’s death.
He died Friday at the age of 81 in Dallas where he was filming the second season of the updated Dallas on TNT. His co-stars Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray were by his side.
I saw the three of them in the red carpet last April on opening night of the TCM Film Festival and they seemed to be genuinely close (see photo below).
While Hagman is best known for his Dallas role of JR Ewing, I first got to know him as the handsome astronaut on I Dream of Jeannie opposite Barbara Eden. Such a dreamboat.
He’s also the son of Broadway legend Mary Martin who is best known for her role as Peter Pan but also starred in The Sound of Music and South Pacific.
