“Extra” host Maria Menounos went on an exclusive set tour of the new “Dallas” TV reboot where she sat down with its star, Larry Hagman, to talk about reprising his role as baddie J.R. Ewing, and about his battle against prostate cancer.

“I feel good,” said the 80-year-old star. “I haven’t started my therapy yet, but it’s treatable and curable. I’m going to try to work through the whole thing and keep working during the therapy.”

Hagman said he has become a vegetarian, too. “I’ve lost about six pounds already in about eight days.”

The TV star is excited to play the patriarch of a new brood of Ewings. “For one thing, I’m working at 80, which is good,” Hagman laughed.

Will J.R. still be cunning and evil? “I’d like to think I would be, yes. Everyone in the world, whether they’re Chinese or English or Turkish or African, they all have a jerk like J.R. in their family somewhere. That’s the way it works.”

Hagman is also joined by original cast members Patrick Duffy as Bobby Ewing, and Linda Gray as Sue Ellen Ewing. Duffy said returning to the “Dallas” set was like “living your life in the rear-view mirror.”

Duffy said that being with his old friends has been wonderful. “From the first table reading of Dallas in 1978, we all walked into the room for the first time and became the best of friends.”

As for the new, younger cast, actor Josh Henderson will play John Ross, son of J.R. and Sue Ellen, and Jesse Metcalfe will portray Bobby’s adopted son Christopher.

“We’re kind of carrying the torch, the younger generation,” said Metcalfe. Henderson added, “It’s drama. It’s sexy. It’s passionate.”

AFTER shooting to fame as Wisteria Lane’s randiest gardener, Jesse Metcalfe is hot TV property.

He is now playing the good guy in new US marshal drama Chase, which can be seen on Sky Living, and will be seen in the return of Dallas next year.

The man responsible for putting the ‘aah’ into gardening during his time on Desperate Housewives is back on screen with two exciting new additions to his tool belt.

Roles in high-octane police drama Chase and the eagerly anticipated remake of iconic series Dallas are lined up for Jesse Metcalfe, the American heartthrob who found fame tending more than just Eva Longoria’s garden.

Six years after playing John Rowland in the glamorous US series, his talents are still very much still in demand.

“It’s been a busy time and I’m not complaining,” says the very happy-sounding 32-year-old, who owes his muscle-bound, brooding looks to his parents’ mixed Italian, Portuguese and French roots.

Jesse Metcalfe: Chase “was a pretty gruelling show to shoot”

Jesse Metcalfe: Chase “was a pretty gruelling show to shoot”

Jesse Metcalfe on ChaseJesse Metcalfe has revealed he suffered a bad back and gruelling heat to film new cop show Chase.
The Desperate Housewives hunk plays Luke Watson, the newest recruit to a team of US marshals hunting fugitives in the new Sky show, which was shot in Texas.
Jesse revealed: “It was a pretty gruelling show to shoot, wearing all our tactical gear in that heat made it very taxing.”
Despite the 32-year-old’s very disciplined fitness regime, which includes weight training every day, hiking, running, basketball and boxing, Jesse couldn’t spare himself from pain while on set.
He revealed: “There were quite a few little injuries along the way.
“I had one really bad back injury where I was running through a field, took a pretty bad spill and threw out my lower back.
“That took about three months to get through. It was a process of getting to work every morning, icing my back and stretching.”
But, as the actor points out, Chase is not your standard cop show. Each episode begins with the story of a fugitive carrying out their latest crime, then the race is on for a team of US marshals to track them down.
“It’s more action than talking heads in an office looking over paperwork,” he explains.
