Dallas star “JR” diagnosed with cancer


Share post:

(CNN) — Actor Larry Hagman recently announced that he has been diagnosed with cancer, but noted “it is a very common and treatable form” of the disease.
Hagman, who turned 80 last month, is best known for his role as J.R. Ewing, the son of a Texas oil tycoon on the primetime television series “Dallas,” and as a dashing Florida astronaut living with a 2,000-year-old genie on the sitcom “I Dream of Jeannie.”
In recent days he has been preparing for a stint on the remake of “Dallas” later this month.
“As J.R I could get away with anything — bribery, blackmail and adultery,” Hagman said. “But I got caught by cancer.”
Hagman said he will receive treatment for his cancer — the type of which was not disclosed — while working on the new “Dallas.”
