“Nip/Tuck” casting news: Larry Hagman and others

by Jennifer Squires Biller

First Rosie O’Donnell was reported to be guest starring in this season’s Nip/Tuck and now it appears a few more familiar faces will be hanging out with our favorite plastic surgeons. Larry Hagman, aka J.R. Ewing, will star as Burt Landau, the new owner of McNamara/Troy, according to some reliable sources. He supposedly wants to have surgery on his…well, I don’t want to spoil you, so let’s just say it is a part of the anatomy that J.R. Ewing was known for. Can you imagine J.R. and Christian Troy butting heads? I can hardly wait. Hagman isn’t the only big-name guest star on the Nip/Tuck lineup this fall.

Kathleen Turner is also starring as a 50-year-old phone sex operator seeking surgery to repair her signature voice. (I always knew there was something seductively strange about her Dove chocolate commercials.) Also scheduled to guest star is Mario Lopez, best known as hunky AC Slater on Saved By The Bell, according to TV Guide. His character supposedly is “infuriatingly fit” and shares screen time with Christian at the gym. Slater and Dr. Troy working out at the same gym. Hmm...how do I get a subscription to that sweat shop?
