INTERVIEW: Josh Henderson Talks Texas Heat and Working Out For Those Dallas Season 3 Shirtless Scenes






Sex and sizzle returned to Southfork in a big way when TNT brought back the classic soap opera Dallas a few seasons ago. As swaggering, cocksure, cowboy oilman John Ross Ewing, Josh Henderson has been proving he's more than worthy of his Ewing license plate, not to mention his magnum-size belt buckle.

“I am from Dallas and so to hear that it was coming back and then to be asked to be a part of the new cast, was really special," said Henderson, when I caught up with him at the Los Angeles Food & Wine festival last month. "Playing JR (the late Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen’s (Linda Gray) son is the coolest thing ever for me. Every day, I’m like, ‘Wow, this is my job?' This is amazing!”

Henderson had no idea where his character will go this season. However, he's pumped to see what roads John Ross will head down.

“I was talking with my show’s creator [Cynthia Cidre], who had just turned in some upcoming storylines," began Henderson. "All I know is that it’s going to be the best season yet! Season 2 was amazing, so I can’t wait to see what unfolds. I’m definitely excited!”

Henderson is also thrilled to be shooting the hit series in his hometown.

“It’s the best thing in the world. I get to go home and shoot the show that put my city on the map worldwide," said the hunky star. "That’s just crazy. What are the odds?”

During his hiatus, Henderson did a lot of traveling.

“I was bouncing around," he began. "I went to the South of France and went throughout America. There’s three more trips planned before we start production. So that’s been fun.”

Henderson is happy the city of Dallas isn’t too hot in October!

“It certainly makes for a more comfortable shooting of scenes,” he quipped.

He is a sweetie and I totally buy him as John Ross.
I can't wait for this show to return.
Thank you Cynthia Cidre!

One question: when the hell is Season 2 going to get a dvd release date?
It's been sitting in my Amazon wish list forever without one.

Love him! John Ross and Pamela are amazing together and Josh and Julie Gonzalo really sizzle. They are by far the best new part of Dallas and one of the best primetime couples period. I can't wait to see them again!

Oh and I heard that the season 2 DVD will be out in January right before season 3 begins.

Josh Henderson is SO perfect as John Ross and so cute too! He is great with Julie Gonzalo. As a fan of the original Dallas, I give Cynthis Cidre tons of credit for respecting the original and connecting it to the new one. I love the new Dallas and can't wait for it to come back in January. The only thing I don't like is that Larry Hagman passed away. Sad But boy did they honor him and make JR a huge part of story last season. I hope they are able to do the same this season.

It is a good show. Kudos.

I am always leary. I have not seen Ironside but it scares me because Hawaii 50 and V (scifi show) were ruined. Dallas is the only remake I can think of that did a good job.

I like both casts of the younger guys in Dallas. I see them doing this show for years to come.

Casting and staying with original concept are so important.

Hawaii 50 and V were remakes with bad direction.

I have not seen Ironside but it scares me to find out.

Tie between this guy and Brad Carlton who has more swagger -- and that is saying a HELL of a lot.

I can't tell you the tingles that go thru my body whenever John Ross says: bullshit.
