Hagman's early TV efforts include guest shots on "Sea Hunt" and "The Defenders," and a continuing gig on the daytime drama "The Edge of Night." In 1965, he began to gain fame when he landed the part of astronaut Anthony Nelson on the sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie." But it was Hagman's indelible portrayal of conniving oil tycoon J.R. Ewing on the nighttime serial "Dallas" (1978-91) that brought him international notoriety -- and a pair of Emmy nods.
Hagman's intermittent film credits include supporting turns in Fail-Safe (1964), Harry and Tonto (1974) and Primary Colors (1998). Fittingly, he made his last screen appearance reprising his villainous "Dallas" character in the reboot of the series. Hagman died Nov. 23, 2012.
This adaptation of Joe Klein's roman à clef, a thinly veiled take on Bill Clinton's campaign for the 1992 Democratic nomination, stars John Travolta as a presidential hopeful embroiled in sex scandals. Emma Thompson plays his long-suffering wife.
