'Dallas' Star Jesse Metcalfe Denies Rivalry With Co-Star Josh Henderson, Teases 'Unexpected Deaths' on Season 2 (VIDEO)
Things certainly get heated on TNT’s Dallas between Ewing cousins John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), but reports of a rivalry between the actors who play them are simply false if you ask Metcalfe.
“In the writing, there’s rivalry. Beyond that, no,” Metcalfe tells Celebuzz at the Environmental Media Awards over the weekend in Los Angeles.
“We’re a really tight knit family,” the actor added.
With that rumor put to bed, what did the actor tell us about the TNT series’ second season?
The cable network announced on Tuesday that Dallas will return for its second season on Jan. 28. And Metcalfe gave us an idea of what to expect. “A lot more twists and turns, a lot more cliffhangers, a lot more great writing,” the 33-year-old teases.
“That’s a testament to [showrunner] Cynthia Cidre and her talented team of writers,” he continues. “There’s some new characters, as well. We’re introducing some new characters, some unexpected deaths, so people have to tune in. There’s a lot coming on Season 2.”
At the EMAs, which celebrate the entertainment industry’s creative environmental efforts, Metcalfe seemed especially proud of the show’s green efforts.
“It’s an incredibly green set, thanks to our local producer Ken Topolsky,” he explains. “He keeps us very green. I would say that we’re a fully sustainable set, really.”
As for his own personal green grade, Metcalfe would say he could use some improvement on the subject. Though, we would say he’s doing a great job.
“I think I have a ways to go. I have more to learn,” the actor, who brought his fiancé Cara Santana to the event, says of his own environmental efforts.
“We recycle. We’re really about conservation. We don’t run the water. We don’t keep the lights on longer than we have to,” he explains. “We use reusable bags when we go to the grocery store. But, I really feel like that’s only scratching the surface and I’m hoping to learn more here tonight.”
