There are a lot of people, especially the characters that we see on TV and the movies, that we just love to hate. Not the actor or actress, but the character that they play. One of these is the actor Larry Hagman who fulfilled both the lovable and the despicable characters. I remember him well in both shows and I bet you do, too.
The first show I remember was "I Dream of Jeannie", with Barbara Eden as the Jeannie that appeared out of the lamp or bottle or whatever they appear out of. Here are two pictures from that show.
Did you notice how young Mr. Hagman was in that show and it was in black and white?
When the TV show, Dallas, came on in 1978 and ran till 1991, Larry played J.R. Ewing in that show. He was sort of the black sheep of the family and did a lot of wheeling/dealing that may or may not have been above board.
Larry Hagman had a long career and he was still playing J.R. up until his death two years ago today in the newest version of the Dallas show. Most viewers loved him in his first show and loved/hated him in the last one. How about you? Did you have a love/hate thing going on for Larry? Now, have a great day, you hear?
