2012: Year of Comebacks
Celebuzz's comeback wish list!
Everything’s bigger in Texas — and Dallas‘ big kick off event was no exception!

On Monday, the new cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot celebrated the series’ big return by debuting a five-acre art installation of the show’s iconic character J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) and brother Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) made entirely out of mulch, rocks, and prairie hay. The piece can be seen by JetBlue planes traveling from Dallas to Boston.

The series’ newcomers — sexy Jesse Metcalfe, Josh Henderson and Jordana Brewster — were also in attendance for the unveiling. Metcalfe and Henderson play the second generation Ewing boys, whom the show centers around. Jesse portrays Patrick Duffy’s son “Christopher Ewing,” while Henderson plays Hagman’s son “John Ross Ewing.”

What did the young cast think of this over-the-top tribute?

“We’re lucky because I’ve never had anything like this before,” Henderson, 30, said.

“It’s incredibly exciting,” his costar Metcalfe, 33, added about working with the series’ original cast members Larry Hagman and Linda Gray. “It’s really just a happy accident that Josh and I are on the show together.”

The 2-hour season premiere airs June 13, 2012 at 9 p.m. ET/PST.
