The upcoming remake of the ’80s prime-time soap “Dallas” is shaping up to be quite the family reunion.
TNT confirms that two more Ewings have been invited back to Southfork Ranch: Charlene Tilton and Steve Kanaly have signed on to appear in the pilot episode of the new “Dallas,” TV Guide reports.
Tilton, who played spoiled spawn Lucy Ewing, and Kanaly, who played illegitimate spawn Steve Krebbs, join previously announced original cast members on board the project, including Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing), Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) and reportedly even the big man himself, Larry Hagman (J.R.).
The return to “Dallas” will focus on the next generation of the Ewing family dynasty, with Josh Henderson cast as J.R.’s son John Ross, and Jordana Brewster playing Elena, the girl coming between John Ross and his cousin Christopher (Pam and Bobby’s adopted son).
The pilot episode begins shooting in Texas in late April/early May.
