Hagman relishes his juicy guest stint

Our unstoppable J.R. Ewing, Larry Hagman is having a blast in his guest-starring role on the new season of f/X's plastic surgery drama "Nip/Tuck," according to the World Entertainment News Network (WENN). The reason? "Because he was able to speak racy dialogue for the first time in his career," the report says. Hmmmm ... Us "Dallas" fans might have to think on that one for just a bit ... Hagman's role as J.R. was nothing if not juicy, itself, and at times what one would consider "racy" ...

Liking the idea of branching out into more "adult territory," Hagman told U.S. OK! magazine that in "Nip/Tuck," in a multi-episode arc of the new season, he plays a patient who seeks surgery on his private parts. He "has his gonads removed," Hagman is quoted as saying. "They say, 'What size would you like?' And I say, 'Kiwi size.' Forty years on television and I've never been able to say things like that!" But no one has teased him for his squeaky-clean screen past, the WENN story says, going on to quote Hagman as saying, "Everyone's been so nice to me. Of course, I'm an icon and I expect that s**t!" Ummm ... OK ... "squeaky-clean screen past???" This is the same Larry Hagman we know and love?
