Casting News: Larry Hagman Out of 'Dallas' Remake? Matt Dillon to Guest on 'Modern Family' and More

Larry HagmanLarry Hagman is out of TNT's new 'Dallas' series? That's news to him.

Reports last week had Hagman dropped from the project, but the former 'I Dream of Jeannie' star told TV Guide he is unaware of the the negotiation halt.

"We were talking about money, but I didn't know it was going to come to a crashing halt like that," Hagman told TV Guide. "You got a scoop for whatever that's worth: Larry Hagman doesn't know what's going on!"

In November, Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray were in talks to join the TNT series. Hagman read the script and said he liked it. It features a single J.R. who hasn't changed much.

"I thought I wanted to do it, but I didn't know it had come to this," he said. "We were so close to [a deal], I didn't know there was an issue. I thought more or less we had it down, unless this is a scare tactic. But I don't need to be scared at my age.

"I'd miss playing with Patrick and Linda, that's for sure, because we're all buddies," he said.

Julianne Moore, Maria Bello Among Big Name Talent on Nets' "Wish List"

by Audrey Fine, posted Jan 27th 2010 1:00PM
Julianne MooreOnce upon a time, hot shot movie actors would never have deigned to stoop so low as to appear on -- gasp --- TV, but thanks to big screen talent like Glen Close ('Damages'), Alec Baldwin ('30 Rock') and Laurence Fishburne ('CSI) having made the leap, more and more "A listers" have begun to think of the old boob tube as less, well, boob-y.

In fact, during any given pilot season, the networks compile a "wish list" of movie stars they'd love to get their mitts on and this year's no different. The Hollywood Reporter details that this time 'round, Oscar nominee Julianne Moore and indie darling Maria Bello rest atop the list for several of the more meaty female roles.

It seems that Moore, who's been dipping her toes into the television pool with a [much-mailgned] guest arc on '30 Rock' would be the dream addition to the Peacock net's take on PBS' long-running 'Prime Suspect.' ABC, too, has its eyes on Moore for its upcoming comedic drama 'Scoundrels' but has also approached Bello and former box office heavyweight-turned-compulsive-tweeter, Demi Moore about the role of a mom who tries to get her family of small-time criminals back on the straight and narrow.

The Simpsons: Midnight Towboy

Homer Simpson(S19E03) Shut the hell up, you damn ass whore! -- Bart

Three episodes of The Simpsons down. Time for an extensive, in-depth analysis of the nineteenth season so far.

Not bad.

Honestly, I wasn't expecting an earth-shattering change in the show after The Simpsons Movie premiered this summer. What has come down the pike since late September has been entertaining and provided a good solid laugh or two. However, I do have one concern and an observation about our favorite yellow-headed patriarch. If I've piqued your interest then jump ahead. If not, then enjoy this floating Homer head. Enjoy it as you get sleepy . . . sleepy. Now, You Will Jump To The Next Page And Laugh Everytime I Say Flooblegee!

The Daily Show: August 17, 2006

The Daily ShowJon Stewart quickly mentioned the night's guest, Matt Dillon, saying that he was only coming on the show because he was "doing it for Johnny!" The audience didn't really respond, so Jon joked about how old he was to remember The Outsiders. Aww. I remember The Outsiders. It had a pre-crazy Tom Cruise! And I totally played the most awesome greaser girl in my 8th grade stage version of the book (too tough to be a Soc chick, baby).

Entourage's Kevin Dillon marries

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 24th 2006 2:25PM

Kevin Dillon and wife Jane StuartActor Kevin Dillon, star of the HBO series Entourage, has taken the plunge and married his fiancee Jane Stuart (well, I hope he married his fiancee; it would be weird if I said he married his dog, Lucky).

The couple were married this past Saturday in a small ceremony at a downtown Las Vegas chapel. The wedding was witnessed by Dillon's co-star Kevin Connolly.

In addition to his role on Entourage, Dillon, younger brother of actor Matt Dillon, has also had roles in such films as Platoon, The Doors and the upcoming film Poseidon. Entourage, which focuses on the day-to-day life of Vince Change Chase and his entourage, will be back on HBO with twenty new episodes.

Saturday Night Live: Matt Dillon & Arctic Monkeys

Matt Dillon in Crash; Arctic Monkeys' CDUp, down, left, right... this episode was all over the place. After last week's fairly solid effort, I was hoping we would see more of the same. But I don't think that it was necessarily the cast's fault. Matt Dillon just wasn't very good.

There was some heavy reliance on the four new guys (Samberg, Hader, Wiig, and Sudeikis) which I was very pleased with. But other than a few sketches, this episode was a snoozer.

Cold Open - Nice change of pace here. For once it wasn't a Bush press conference or Hardball. I really can't remember the last time they opened with a regular sketch, although the pre-taped Steve Martin open was very good. Maya, Rachel, Amy, and Kristen played four college girls waiting for their spring break flight. They're gonna have group sex, smoke some hash, all sorts of fun things. The pay-off is after their flight gets called, we find out their parents were sitting next to them the whole time. Favorite line: "Last year when I got home, I found a ten dollar bill in my butt."

Natalie Portman, Matt Dillon to host SNL

natalie portman snlAfter a three-week hiatus because of the Olympics, Saturday Night Live is back this weekend. The gorgeous (seriously, just look at the picture of her with a shaved head) Natalie Portman will host and the musical guest will be Fall Out Boy. It's the first appearance on the show for both Natalie and the band. Natalie will be sporting a short hairdo and will hopefully be making fun of the fact that everyone is freaking out over her shaved head in her upcoming movie, V is for Vendetta.

Then, on March 11, Matt Dillon will host while Arctic Monkeys, the band that everyone is talking about these days, will be the musical guest.
