    Dallas star Larry Hagman has died at the age of 81.
    The actor, who was famed for playing J.R. Ewing on the hit show, died at a Dallas hospital on Friday after complications with his recent battle with throat cancer.
    He is survived by wife Maj, who he married in 1952. In 2008, Maj was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.

    All I can remember of the Dallas TV show was my Mom being a fan of it. RIP JR.

    His co-star Linda Gray, who played his on-screen wife Sue Ellen Ewing, was at his bedside when he died at 4.20pm, her agent Jeffrey Lane has stated.
    Mr Lane added that Patrick Duffy, who played his brother Bobby, was also at Hagman's bedside at Medical City Dallas Hospital.
    'They had been friends for 35 years and they had worked together for many years, so obviously it is devastating,' Mr Lane told The Sun.

    The true measure of a person---to have friends for 35 years together at the end.

    He was bigger than life---may he RIP.

    I loved the smug way he would often say, "Well, I'm just wrong again, I guess."

    I did love to see him screw over Cliff Barnes. I don't know why, but I despised Cliff Barnes.

    Yup, you are right. Nice to see they remained friends for so long, long after the show was over.

    RIP Larry, I loved I dream of Jeanie and Dallas and watched both.

    I loved I Dream of Jeannie. He has superb comedic skills, and he played a great villain on Dallas. RIP.

    I still don't know who shot him. I think that was a big deal once.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Jeannie was the dumbest show ever - and yes, I remember "My Mother, the Car". But Dallas was great fun. Anyone besides me remember some of his mother's acting roles?
