Larry Hagman, a larger-than-life TV personality best known for his role as J.R. Ewing on the primetime soap Dallas, died Friday of complications from throat cancer.
The star, who was the son of Broadway legend Mary Martin (South Pacific, Peter Pan) and Texas attorney Benjamin Hagman, was 81. He is survived by his wife of nearly 58 years, Maj Hagman, their two children and their grandchildren.
"When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones," his family said in a statement to the Dallas Morning News. "It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time."

Dallas is back! And so are scheming brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing. TNT's reboot of the classic primetime soap kicked off with its series premiere Wednesday night, and the backstabbing brothers did not disappoint.
But the new version of the show focuses on their sons, John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson) and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe). These two good-looking cousins pick up right where their feuding fathers left off.
Like his dad, John Ross is ambitious and wants to stick with the family business: oil. But Christopher, who was adopted by Bobby and his first wife Pam, is seeking an alternate energy source in methane mining, which goes in line with the wishes of his late grandmother, Ellie Ewing, who declared in her will that there would be no drilling on the family's iconic ranch, Southfork.

New favorite restaurant?
Ashley Olsen was in Dallas on a business trip to promote her new fashion line – but she still made time for a lunch break with a friend. Olsen stopped into Del Frisco's Grille for a mid-day bite, splitting a few appetizers and then tucking into a wedge salad herself.
Later in the day, sporting sunglasses and a casual summer dress, Olsen was back at Del Frisco's – this time for an early dinner. On the menu? Some chicken tacos and a glass of wine. Says a source of the starlet: "She was really nice."
