Another new face is about to collide with the Ewings at Southfork.
Best-known for roles in Spanish-language movies and TV series — though he also was seen in NBC’s summer show “Camp” — Argentine performer Juan Pablo Di Pace will be a regular on TNT’s “Dallas” reboot when it makes its return for Season 3, expected early in the new year.
He’s likely to be a real force for Bobby (Patrick Duffy), Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and company to contend with, since his character is a stylish and sexy billonaiire who apparently has two sides: one loaded with charm and humor, the other reflecting more sinister tendencies.
Di Pace also appeared with such notables as Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth in the 2008 movie of the hit musical “Mamma Mia!” Adding him to “Dallas” as a powerful Ewing foe likely is a move to maintain the type of conflict that often was suppiied by the late Larry Hagman‘s J.R.
“Dallas” clearly is aiming to freshen its cast for its upcoming round, since “90210” alum AnnaLynne McCord also has been added to the serial. She’ll play a single mother who works at Southfork and is driven toward Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), who’s back on the market after his breakup with Elena (Jordana Brewster).
