Keck's Exclusives: Cliff Barnes Back to Dallas
by William Keck

It wouldn't be Dallas without a good old-fashioned Ewing/Barnes feud. Although TNT's Dallas pilot, set to air in Summer 2012, was Barnes-free, I've just learned that Ken Kercheval has signed on to reprise his role as J.R. Ewing's No. 1 nemesis, Cliff Barnes, in a multi-episode arc.

Ken, 76, will appear in the third, fourth and tenth episodes. He and Larry Hagman (J.R.) have the distinction of being the only Dallas actors who appeared on the prime time soap blockbuster throughout it's entire 1978-1991 run. Ken also reprised the role in the 1996 reunion movie, Dallas: J.R. Returns, but was absent from 1998's War of the Ewings.

Amazingly, September 21 will mark Larry Hagman's 80th birthday - so I'd say getting Cliff Barnes back as a sparing partner is a sweet gift. Now I can't help wondering if Cliff will try to renew his romance with J.R.'s ex, Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). One last nugget: speculation is that Cliff may be related to someone who appears in the pilot, though it's far too soon to get into that, darlins.

For more on this story, pick up next week's issue of TV Guide Magazine.

Good! The series was based from the beginning on the Barnes/Ewing feud, not just J.R. or the Ewings. There would have been a big void without them.

Good! I've been re-watching old Dallas episodes (hence the new Sue Ellen avatar) and I'm definitely optimistic about this.

I was upset they weren't including him and seemingly ignoring the Barnes aspect. However, I LOVED the preview and got super excited again, but was still kinda upset, but now I'm VERY relieved they aren't disregarding the Barnes aspect. Thank GOD.

His daughter's name is Pamela Rebecca Cooper so I'd say yes.

Which in turn will add conflict, especially if Rebecca never told Christopher about her lineage. Oh the drama that could create.

It could be Jordana Brewster's Character?
