LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - TNT has lured three original "Dallas" stars to join the cast of its similarly titled pilot, which is an update of the classic series.

Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray have joined the cast of the new project, which focuses on the Ewing offspring -- J.R. Ewing's (Hagman) son, John Ross, and the adopted son of Bobby (Duffy) and Pam Ewing, Christopher -- as they clash over the future of the family dynasty. Gray played J.R.'s wife, Sue Ellen, in the original series, which ran from 1978-91.

Also signing on for roles are Josh Henderson ("Desperate Housewives"), who will play John, and Jordana Brewster ("Fast & Furious") as Elena, who is involved in a love triangle with Christopher and John.
