Extra spoke to John Travolta today and he confirmed that he is indeed set to play J.R. Ewing in the upcoming feature film, Dallas. He said, “Yes, I have to do two movies before that…then I’ll do Dallas. I heard Larry [Hagman] approved of me. We were in Primary Colors together…it was sweet giving his seal of approval.” On Jennifer Lopez playing Sue Ellen, Travolta commented, “Yes I did speak to her and she’s interested and I’m hoping they are closing her deal as well.”
Not convinced about Jennifer Lopez, although Sue Ellen was not the most demanding of parts. But Travolta I can definitely see as J.R. ...
Then, of course, Ron Palillo HAS to play Cliff Barnes.
