Television is taking a turn for the remakes, looking to resurrect another classic television show for a new generation. Sources are claiming that remake of Dallas is in the works, with none other than Kiefer Sutherland being considered for the lead!

But he won't be playing JR EWing, don't worry. No, that coveted role can only go to one man - the one who originated it! Sources reveal that Larry Hagman, now 79, would be reprising his role as the scheming oil tycoon, and other original cast members, like Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, have also been approached to return for the remake.

As for the younger blood, we hear Jennifer Love Desperate and Lost actor Josh Holloway are being considered as stars. (Oh, how excited Jennifer must be!)

We think it would be very hard to capture the magic of the original, but worse ideas have been tried!

Would U tune in for a remake of the show?

    And other fellow Canadian - Neil Fifer to play 'Bobby' to kick JR's ass!

    That news has been denied all over, The reps for Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Josh Holloway have all said: NOT TRUE.

    As usual, Perez copies-pastes made up news.

    Why in the title would you hint that Sutherland would play JR Ewing, then right away in the story say that he wouldn't?

    You are an idiot

    Can I ask what in God's name you have against JLH? Why are you always bullying her? Message to JLH: hold on, BB, IT GETS BETTER!
