SHARE RETURN OF J.R.? HAGMAN’S THINKING OF A `DALLAS’ MOVIE

J.R. is eager to get back in the saddle. Two months after a liver transplant, Larry Hagman says he's ready to start acting and directing again.

"We've been talking about doing a movie of `Dallas,' the reunion," Hagman told "Entertainment Tonight" in an interview to be broadcast Monday.Hagman, once a heavy drinker, was diagnosed in 1992 with cirrhosis. In July 1995 a malignant tumor was discovered on his liver and he was placed on a transplant waiting list.

Hagman, 64, said he does not know who his donor was. "I sure do thank him or her," Hagman said. "It's a perfect liver, though, because it sure has attached well and taken off."
