Photo Coverage: Remembering Larry Hagman

As BroadwayWorld reported last week, TV star Larry Hagman, who played 'J.R. Ewing' on "Dallas", died on November 23, 2012, after a battle with cancer. He was 81. We celebrate the life and career of the legend below.

Son of Broadway's Mary Martin, Hagman graced the Broadway stage throughout the late '50s and early '60s in The Beauty in Part, The Warm Peninsula, The Nervous Set, God and Kate Murphy and Comes a Day.

Hagman rose to fame with his conniving portrayal on CBS' "Dallas" from 1978 to 1991. Despite a recent battle with cancer, Hagman had returned to the show to film the first—and part of the second—season of TNT's reboot. On television, Hagman also appeared as 'Major Anthony Nelson' on ABC's "I Dream Of Jeannie".
