R.I.P. Larry Hagman (1931-2012)

Reading the newspaper today, I saw the sad news for the entertainment industry that Larry Hagman has died.

Larry Hagman Dies at Age 81

I can't say that I was a huge fan of Hagman or his work, though I adored I Dream of Jeannie during its run, and admit to watching the original Dallas back in the day. Hagman was a terrific actor in many ways, but was one of those Hollywood folks who had an interesting life that was somewhat downplayed in certain respects (other than his "Who Shot J.R.?" controversial salary war with the network.

Rest In Peace, Larry Hagman. The Texas oilman has finally met his match.
