The intent of this thread is to choose roles in movies which you would have preferred to see someone from "Dallas" in instead of the actor or actress who actually played the role. The time frame for this is within a few years after the actor or actress left Dallas. So it will be different for different people. You can choose a movie role for Victoria Principal anytime after she left Dallas. You can choose a movie role for Larry Hagman or Patrick Duffy anytime after the spring of 1991. For Duffy you can also choose a movie from the time when he temporarily left Dallas to pursue a career in movies. Pick roles you both would enjoy seeing them in and that you think they would have been well suited for, especially if you think they may have brought some new and interesting elements to the roles. In the case of Victoria Principal, I know she made several made for TV movies after leaving Dallas. We can agree or disagree on how good those movies were and how good Victoria Principal was in them, but pick a big screen movie role which you think could have made her a bigger movie star than she became - something that you think could have made her thought of as a true movie star as opposed to a TV star who made some movies. I can't think of any of the main cast anyway, who after Dallas became just that - what people would consider true movie stars. I think some could have achieved that with the right roles, but for some reason they didn't get those roles and ended up being primarily known as TV stars, which isn't a bad thing, but for the purpose of this thread, try to choose roles that you think would have allowed them to cross over to being major movie stars as opposed to major TV stars. I think Larry Hagman would have been excellent in the 1993 movie "The Firm" in the role of Avery Tolar which was played by Gene Hackman. I think Gene Hackman did a fine job in that role; this isn't a knock against him. I just would like to see what Larry Hagman would have done with that role. I think Victoria Principal would have been very good in 1991's "Sleeping With The Enemy" in the role of Laura Burney which was played by Julia Roberts. She's a younger woman than Victoria Principal but for that role I think a woman who was Victoria Principal's age in 1991 would have been just as well suited for the role as the younger actress who played the role. Julia Roberts did a good job in that role but I'd like to see what Victoria Principal would have brought to that role. Another major role from 1991 that I'd like to have seen Victoria Principal play is the role of Leigh Bowden who plays the wife of attorney Sam Bowden in the classic movie "Cape Fear." That's a role which would have pushed her to the limits of her ability, as it would any actress, since it's such a demanding role. Jessica Lange, one of my favorite actresses played Leigh Bowden very well and I'd like to see if Victoria Principal would have also played the role very well and what new elements she may have brought to the role. Patrick Duffy was gone from Dallas in the 1985-1986 9th season. He had left specifically to become a major motion picture star. I would be very interested to see how his movie career would have gone of he'd gotten the role of Remy McSwain played by Dennis Quaid in 1986's "The Big Easy." It was quite a successful movie and could have done wonders for Duffy's movie career if he'd gotten the role, as long as he played the role well, of course. What ideas do you all have for this subject? Is it something you've thought about much? I wouldn't say I've thought about it a lot, or I'd have more suggestions for roles for the Dallas cast, but it is something I've thought about from time to time. Dallas had some wonderful actors and it's a shame that they were utilized by the business so sparingly after Dallas ended!
