The actor’s family released a statement shortly afterwards, saying “He was surrounded by loved ones when he passed. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for.”
This is a very sad day… “Dallas” would never have the legacy it does without J.R. Ewing. He even reprised his iconic villain role from the ’80′s drama on the TNT version, which launched earlier this year. Larry also starred in “I Dream of Jeannie.” He is survived by his two children.
