Battle Of The Dallas Heartthrobs – Jesse Metcalfe Or Josh Henderson?
Huffington Post UK – ‘Dallas’ has returned to our screens, and it’s like it’s never been away. Bobby and JR Ewing are both still proving that some things do run thicker than blood – ie oil, and the money it brings. And their sibling rivalry has been passed seamlessly to the next generation with their sons – Christopher and John Ross respectively – fighting for the future of Southfork Ranch, not to mention the love they share for one girl (Series One of the new series out on DVD on Monday).
Jesse Metcalfe and Josh Henderson were plucked from other dramas to pick up their stetsons and play Christopher and John Ross. Metcalfe swotted up watching 33 episodes from the first series, while Henderson caught up with old JR clips on YouTube “to discover how he made him so magnetic”. And the pair were used to competing against each other for auditions (as well as in a charity league away from work), so their rivalry came naturally.
But who gets your vote? Josh Henderson’s a Texan native, so that must get points, but Metcalfe‘s Christopher is striving for renewable energy, so that must put him on the side of the angels. And he’s got his demons, secretly pining for a woman who’s not his wife, not something Bobby would approve of.

It’s been 20 years since Texas-style lust, greed and cliffhangers had TV fans tuning in to the prime-time soap opera “Dallas.”
Now the juicy 1980s series returns in the Bravo update “Dallas,” a show headlined by such iconic “Ewings” as J. R. (Larry Hagman), Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). These original characters have been brought back by the show’s producers.
Bravo’s 2012 revamp also features a new generation of Ewings to carry on the family tradition of plotting, scheming and down-and-dirty rivalry.
“We’re pretty sure the show is going to be a success. Maybe it’ll be another television phenomenon,” said new “Dallas” addition Jesse Metcalfe on Monday on CTV’s Canada AM.
The series debuted on July 13, pulling in an estimated six million viewers in the United States and 1.9 million viewers in Canada.
Even so, this new incarnation of “Dallas” has a long way to go to duplicate the success of its predecessor, which was included in Time magazine’s 2007 list of the “100 Best TV Shows of All-Time.”
In this new update, 33-year-old Metcalfe plays Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby and Pam Ewing.
