Larry Hagman Has Passed Away From Throat Cancer

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


This is so sad!

Larry Hagman, of Dallas and I Dream of Jeanie fame, passed away on Friday of complications from throat cancer.

The 81-year-old TV star had been making people smile for years, but was recently battling stage 2 throat cancer.

Hagman’s family released a statement, saying:

“Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”

Well at least he was with those he loved most!

Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Re: Be-Atch – So true. It was so wonderful to see him in the new Dallas - he stole the show.

    RIP! So sad. Loved watching him in I dream of Jeanie when Nick at Night had the show on. So glad they did that so our generation can watch those old (and good) shows. Never watched Dallas as I'm 26 and never saw it on tv in syndication, but I've heard a lot about it. May he RIP & condolences to his family, friends, fans, & anyone else affected by his passing.

    A true icon and legend. So glad that a new generation was able to see his talent and briefly experience the awesomeness that is JR Ewing. Glad to know that his family - including Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy were with him. It is amazing that a fictional family became so real to so many. His legacy will continue with the reboot of Dallas and luckily for us, he completed six of the fifteen episodes for season 2. Sadly, it was reported that he actually passed away from lung cancer which he had kept hidden from the public while he brought life back to an incredible show and character. RIP Larry. Thoughts and prayers to everyone touched by his talent and life.

    Your thoughts are of interest to no one, homo. I'm surprised you're not posting pictures of yourself here, trying to imply that you and Hagman were besties and how devastated you are that he's no long with us. It's what you love to do; make it all about you when the truth is you're a bottom-feeder with no hand in Hollywood. You have to copy and paste from other sites because you're such a worthless outsider loser. Perez Hilton = laughingstock of the gossip industry.

    R.I.P What an actor. I've been watching him for years. Even when he made the rounds for the new Dallar series. He will be missed.

    Re: WALLY THE BEAR – Mr. Hagman was a fervent anti-smoking advocate for a very long time.

    Re: Pansy Hunter

    For someone who's such a homophobic hater, you sure do pay a lot of attention to this website. You've made 152 comments? If you don't like it, don't read it. Easy solution. No need to bring your negativity to everyone else's day. It's ignorant, rude, cruel people like you that make this world a horrible place. So just shut the eff up.

    Oh man. R.I.P. Mr. Hagman, you will always be remembered as the one and only J.R. Ewing!

    Above his Malibu home flew a flag with the credo "Vita Celebratio Est", or
    "Life Is a Celebration." He's being a character somewhere else now. Loved his acting.

    RIP Larry, loved, JR Ewing in Dallas and also loved him in I Dream of Jeannie. Wonderful man.
    Read elsewhere he was married for 58 years, best wishes to his family and friends.

  15. Marlene Emmett says – reply to this


    Larry &Maj Hagman were married for 59 years,had 2 children & 5 granddaughters
    Larry will always be "J.R.Ewing II" to me as his late co-stars Jim Davis will always be
    "John Ross *Jock* Ewing " & Barbara Bel Geddes will always be "Miss Ellie"
    you really want to be facinated~read Larry's page!!!!
    did you know that his is Bridget Fonda's godfather???

  16. 16

    Re: Marlene Emmett – Words spoken of a true fan… Yes, even though loved Donna Reed who came in when Miss Bel Geddes passed, none other could be the Ewing Matriarch, but she. And no one, even Howard Keel, also passed, could be the Ewing Patriarch but Jim Davis and his ranch-style gruff.

    Larry could play J.R. so believably, but then he could play Major Anthony Nelson with the right bumbling, too. He will be missed and do hope that they do not attempt, in this remake of "Dallas", to replace him with another actor as J.R., no one can fill that white cowboy hat as Larry. He was ill very long, but did you know Maj is a victim of Alzheimer's for several years & he visited her faithfully though she no longer knew him?

    Wonder if their children can explain his passing to her, or if she would understand? Poor. poor woman!

    Re: Pansy Hunter
    You accuse Perez of making everything about himself, but your strange obsession with him and your incessant whining and ranting is just you making it all about yourself. I'm sure more people couldn't care less about what you think than they do of Perez, and seriously, who still uses the phrase "bottom feeder?" Sounds like you've been reading a well worn out copy of "The Dummy's Guide to Tired 90's Internet Cliches."

    I am really sad to hear this. I live in Dallas, and I tried to get on the A-List show, but they wouldn't accept me. So I watched Dallas, because I thought maybe I could become a celebrity. It hasn't happened, and now I am getting old and fat. Ugh, I wish I could lose some of this weight, and then there is my halitosis, which is really bothersome to my friends. I dreamed of meeting Larry Hagman, and try to make it to hollywood as a celebrity since nothing ever came of the A-List stuff. I even hang out with some of the old A-List people since that show was canceled, and I think it makes me popular. RIP Larry Hagman. I am headed to Station 4 later tonight, so I can be seen on the patio. That always makes me feel good.
