Dallas returned to our screens this year after a rather lengthy absence and now the Texas based power struggles come home to roost, with series one hitting DVD this week.
To celebrate JR and the gang coming home, two of the show’s stars (the gorgeous duo of Jesse Metcalfe and Josh Henderson) talked about their roles on Dallas and what it’s been like being a part of such a hit.
Was it daunting joining such an iconic show as Dallas?
“Every great project starts with a great script. Once I wrapped my mind around the idea and read the script and saw the characters were fleshed out it looked like a contemporary show, while keeping it true to the series.”
Were you a fan of Dallas when you were younger?
I had to go back and watch some episodes – I watched about 33 – I wanted to set the tone and see my co workers in their younger years. There was a little Christopher, but you have no idea of who the man will be.
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.
