A number of people have remarked on what a good main cast Dallas had. Does it surprise you that more of them didn't have more success in other stages of their careers in TV or movies? Right now, the only one who comes to mind that had a starring role in what I'd consider a hit TV show was Larry Hagman with I Dream Of Jeannie. Maybe Patrick Duffy in Step By Step would also qualify. I don't know if any of the main cast had a starring role in a real big movie. They all played their roles in Dallas so well, that at the time Dallas ended, I expected to see a lot of them with major roles in some other high profile projects, whether in movies or TV. I didn't end up seeing nearly as many of them have the kind of continuing success I was expecting. Were the actors in the main cast of Dallas just exceptionally good at their roles in Dallas but not particularly versatile, or were they not offered the opportunities that they probably should have been? I believe that the TV and movie industry vastly underutilized some of these people after Dallas ended. For example, Larry Hagman did get a starring role in another TV series after Dallas but it was "Orleans" in 1997. I remembered being very interested in seeing it and then quite disappointed when it premiered. It wasn't the kind of show that allowed Larry Hagman to display his talent to its fullest. Orleans only lasted 8 episodes and got cancelled. That's a long wait - 6 years for another starring role and then it's on a show with a script of such low quality that it doesn't even last half a season.
