  • Dallas Icon Larry Hagman Dead at 81, Remembered as ‘An Element of Pure Americana’

TV icon Larry Hagman, best known for playing the iconic J.R. Ewing on both CBS’ original Dallasand TNT’s current incarnation, passed away on Friday at Medical City Dallas hospital from cancer complications. He was 81.

Hagman — shortly after TNT’s Dallas update was announced in summer 2011 — revealed that he was being treated for “a very common and treatable form of cancer,” later specified as Stage 2 throat cancer. After enduring chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Hagman announced in mid-2012. “I beat that thing. I am in remission now. All good!”
