breaking news

Actor Larry Hagman -- best known as the conniving J.R. Ewing on "Dallas" -- has died at age 81.

Hagman died in a Dallas hospital at 4:20 pm Friday, due to complications from a recent battle with cancer ... according to local reports.

The actor's family released a statement shortly afterwards, saying "He was surrounded by loved ones when he passed. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for."

Hagman also starred in "I Dream of Jeannie" but was most famous for playing the iconic villain J.R. in the 1980's drama "Dallas" -- and recently reprised the same role on the TNT version ... which launched earlier this year (below).

He is survived by his two children.

WOW it's sad to hear about his passing . I enjoyed watching him on the I dream of Jeannie, then on Dallas . I would like to say to his family, relatives, friends that I'm sorry for their loss of Larry, I'm surprised to hear good things from people saying about Larry, about who he really is as being Larry, I know how people feel to lost their love ones from cancer because my father had die from lung, bone cancer in 2007 of March, it really stucks in a big time for anyone who have cancer, where are you now . since yesterday has wave good bye ..... Rest in peace Larry. From Tina M. Cutler as
