RIP: Larry Hagman dead at 81, Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie star

Larry Hagman, who created one of American television's most supreme villains in the conniving, amoral oilman J.R. Ewing of "Dallas," died on Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported. He was 81.

Hagman died at a Dallas hospital of complications from his battle with cancer, the newspaper said, quoting a statement from his family. He had suffered from cancer and cirrhosis of the liver in the 1990s after decades of drinking.

Hagman's mother was stage and movie star Mary Martin and he became a star himself in 1965 on "I Dream of Jeannie," a popular television sitcom in which he played Major Anthony Nelson, an astronaut who discovers a beautiful genie in a bottle.

RIP Major Anthony Nelson/JR Ewing.

I think his Mom was Mary Martin, the original Peter Pan on Broadway.

(I guess I could have read your post first.)

JR Ewing and Maj. Nelson two classic characters, two polar opposites.

RIP
