‘Dallas’ star slams movie remake

Patrick Duffy has slammed the new Dallas' movie, calling the script "crap" and declaring he's pleased not to be involved with the remake. The 57-year-old, who starred as heart-throb Bobby Ewing in the original 1980s TV series, reckons, "I think they'll discover that Dallas’ is better left how it was. I got a sneak of one of the scripts – I can’t tell you how – but I read it and I was like, ‘Wow! That’s crap!’ I’m glad I’ve got no involvement in this one.” He adds, “I would hate to be John Travolta doing JR Ewing and then have the entire world compare him to Larry Hagman. There is just no comparison.” [24 october 2006]
