Andrew Prine tries on some "Sutures"

On "Dallas," Andrew Prine played the brief but memorable Harrison Van Buren III, surprise hubby of Afton Cooper, in whom Cliff Barnes was in hot pursuit after learning of Afton's (surprise!) daughter. While his time in Texas may have been short, Prine is a longtime TV veteran whose credits include "Murder, She Wrote," "The Fall Guy," "Hart to Hart," "Hawaii Five-O," even "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and the original "Wonder Woman" pilot (the one with Cathy Lee Crosby!).

Prine, who in actuality registers as a BRBTV double-shot for his role as an "angry man" in the 2005 "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, has a new project in the works. It's a film called "Sutures," directed by Tammi Sutton and written by Jacqueline A. Kelly and Carlos Lauchu. The plotline from the IMDb: "A group of longtime friends converge on a fatal course with destiny when they cross paths with Alexander Tatum. A mercenary surgeon, he is a hunter with the keen skill of one who has also been hunted." Prine's character is Dr. Hopkins. Filmed at an L.A. hospital, the horror flick is scheduled for release this year.

Prine, meanwhile, is featured on Cinematical for his role in the stunning classic "Barn of the Naked Dead." He played the slasher in that one. Well, OK, not really a slasher. More like a stalker, and a painter, evidently. Fun.

And while we're still talking "Dallas," you can catch up with how our gal Priscilla Presley is doing on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" on Zap2It.
