    Dallas Reboot Casting Notes.

    Thursday, March 15 2012

    Dallas is back!

    The highly-anticipated "Dallas" reboot will be aired Wednesday June 13 at 9:00 PM on TNT with ten episodes in the season and a two hour season opener which is sure to knock viewers’ socks off. While some will see a few faces from the past, there are many new faces and the story revolves around the younger set – the children of J.R. Ewing and his brother Bobby Ewing.

    Cast list is as follows:

    Josh Henderson ("The Girl Next Door," "April Fool’s Day," and "Desperate Housewives") will portray John Ross Ewing III, J.R. and Sue Ellen’s son.

    Jesse Metcalfe ("John Tucker Must Die," "Chase," "Desperate Housewives," and "Passions") will play Bobby and Pam’s son, Christopher Ewing.

    Jordana Brewster who portrayed Nikki on "As The World Turns," and "Desperate Housewives" is Elena Ramos. Brewster's also in all of the "Fast and Furious" movies with the sixth installment slated for 2013.

    Brenda Strong "Desperate Housewives," "Rizzoli & Isles," and "Everwood," will be playing Ann Ryland Ewing, Bobby’s wife.

    Steve Kanaly who portrayed Seabone Hunkle in "All My Chidren," had parts in "Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings," "Double Trouble," and "Lost In Plainview," plays Ray Krebbs, who if you recall, is the illegitimate son of Jock Ewing.

    Charlene Tilton "Dancing On Ice," "Superhero Movie," and "#1 Cheerleader Camp" returns as Lucy Ewing.

    Julie Gonzalo "CSI:Miami," "Nikita," "A Cinderella Story," and "Christmas With The Kranks," plays Rebecca Sutter.

    Marlene Forte "Real Women Have Curves," "Star Trek," and "American Reunion," will play Carmen Ramos.

    Larry Hagman reprises his role as the bitter and vengeful J.R. Ewing. Hagman has also been recently seen in "Nixon," "Superman," and "Desperate Housewives."

    Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) is well known for his role as Stephen Logan on "Bold and The Beautiful," and the father on "Step By Step," but long-time soap fans may also remember he did a guest stint on "Knots Landing" back in the day also as Bobby Ewing.

    Linda Gray returns as J.R.’s long-suffering wife Sue Ellen Ewing. Gray portrayed Priscilla Kelly on "Bold and The Beautiful" a few years ago but most recently was Victoria Brewer on "90210." Her new movie, "Hidden Moon," where she portrays Eva Brighton is in post-production.

    Ken Kercheval has signed on for the reboot and should appear in the third, fourth and tenth episodes as Cliff Barnes, J.R.'s nemesis. Kercheval has been seen recently in "Bad Ass," and "Surviving in L.A."

    In an interview in January, Patrick Duffy teased that they’ve already filmed the season one finale for "Dallas."
