Sounds like he might have taken ill suddenly on set (the article said he was in Dallas for filming the show) and put in the hospital. If so then its rational that his fellow actors and longtime friends would be with him.
If I recall his wife is ill with Alzheimers. She wouldn't have been with him in Dallas. The two actors mentioned have known Hagman for decades and I believe socialised with him offset. Glad he had familiar faces with him at the end esp. the day after a holiday.

This ties in with the other thread about the early 80s. Dallas was huge and one of the best written, best acted, most fun TV shows of its time. Still is a marvel to watch.

You wrote in your memoir, “Hello Darlin’,” that when you die, you want to be ground up in a wood chipper like Steve Buscemi’s character in the movie “Fargo.” Is this actually set down in your will?
Well, it’s hard to set down chipping. I don’t think that’s allowed. But I did want to be spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 to 300 people. People would eat a little of Larry.

It's one of the highest-rated original series on cable, you fucktard. Not only was it not cancelled, they're in the middle of filming season two on location in "Dallas" right now, which is why Hagman was there to begin with. I have no earthly idea how they're going to manage to write this into the script, given that Hagman was apparently feeling well just a few days ago.

I have plenty of gay friends who knew Larry very well and he absolutely did not hate gays, bitter reactionary at R25.
Perhaps you're referring to his dislike of Dack Rambo, who often showed up late to the set, hungover from the zillion orgies he participated in during his run on "Dallas" (Rambo was a whore, darlin', and an irresponsible one at that.)

If Larry Hagman disliked gay men it might be due in part to the fact that his mother, Mary Martin, left her first husband and dumped Larry with her parents in order to pursue a career in show business. She ended up marrying Richard Halliday, an alcoholic homosexual who became her personal manager. Halliday was a nasty bitter drunk who caused his step-son a great deal of unhappiness when Hagman came to live with them in NYC in his teens. Most people who knew Halliday fairly loathed him.

He's been moved up to regular and he'll be a big antagonist. I'm sure the writers will re-write the season.
Too bad those Ewing sons can't pull off what Hagman, Duffy et. al. did when Jim Davis died.
J.R. should die in bed with that regular hooker he had back in the day.
They'll get a huge turnout of old cast members for J.R.'s funeral.

A skillion years ago, in a cheap liquor store in Addison, TX, a drunk Tina Louise traipsed in with an amused Larry Hagman following.
She proceeded to careen around the store, slurring her words, vaguely cursing the other customers out, grabbing bottles of liquor.
Hagman just stood back, watched the whole thing and laughed, making the occasional sarcastic comment. Not an unusual sight when he was in town back in the day.
Loved him. Hated her.

His mom, Mary Martin, was only 17-years old when Larry was born. Larry was raised by his grandmother. Martin started a dance school in Texas, and left for Hollywood and Broadway soon after. But, they finally became good friends & truly mother and son in the last 20 years of her life. And Larry did hate Mary Martin's 2nd husband (as did most everyone else).
But for many years he was mostly known as Mary's son.

R86 he spent his years raised by his father and grand parents in TEXAS.
Five years after Larry was born, Mary Martin took off to New York to pursue her career and they didn't see each other for many years.
He lived in Texas from 1931 to 1940, nine years.
Then in 1946 he moved back to Texas to live with his Dad for 3 years,
So for a total of 12 years he spent his growing up years living in TEXAS.

As I received the news this evening and as you read this I still cannot completely express the shock and impact from the news that Larry Hagman has passed. I can still remember, that first day on Zuma Beach with him, in the frigid cold. From that day for five more years, Larry was the center of so many fun, wild, shocking… and in retrospect, memorable moments that will remain in my heart forever.
He was such a key element in my life for so long and even, years after I Dream of Jeannie; our paths crossed many times. Throughout various productions I had the pleasure of watching the Texas Tornado that was Larry Hagman. Amidst a whirlwind of big laughs, big smiles and unrestrained personality Larry was always, simply Larry. You couldn't fault him for it, it was just who he was. I am so thankful that this past year I was able to spend time with him and experience yet again ‘Larry’ in all his Big Texas bravado.
I, like many others believed he had beat Cancer and yet we are reminded that life is never guaranteed. My deepest condolences go out to his wife Maj, his son and daughter and his grandchildren, as well as his friends in this time of his passing. I can honestly say that we've lost not just a great actor, not just a television icon, but an element of pure Americana.
Goodbye Larry, there was no one like you before and there will never be anyone like you again.

If the producers are just a little bit smart they'll milk JR's death for seasons to come. I think they were dealing with Jock's death for three seeasons. Took them half a season to just miss him and then another half season to really declare him dead.
The first season was a bit all over the place for me, partially they tried to do justice to so many old and new characters. In a way the central and yet bystanding character of JR prevented the young ones to freely develop. Now they, especially John Ross, can develop anywhere. I hope the actors can fill the void. Anf if not I hope JR's will is going to reveal Pamela' whereabout.

But it was a thrill, nonetheless.
