Word That Larry Hagman Was Out of 'Dallas' Reboot Came as News to Hagman--He's Still Interested TV Guide

Contrary to news that broke last week, Larry Hagman is still eager to play J.R. Ewing in the rebooted "Dallas" that TNT is launching, reports TV Guide.

Last Thursday, reports surfaced that Hagman had backed out of the project over money. When questioned by the publication, Hagman said, "I hadn't heard about that, huh! That's really interesting. We were talking about money, but I didn't know it was going to come to a crashing halt like that. You got a scoop for whatever that's worth: Larry Hagman doesn't know what's going on!"

Hagman went on to say that he would be disappointed if the "Dallas" relaunch went on without him, but he would survive.
