Jordana Brewster Heads To “Dallas”

Jordana Brewster has scored the lead role in TNT’s “Dallas” reports TV Line.

Cynthia Cidre (“Cane,” “Mambo Kings”) is penning the reboot of the 80’s soap, the story centering “on feuding cousins John Ross and Christopher, the offspring of brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing, as they clash over the future of the Ewing dynasty.”

Brewster would play Elena, “the gorgeous daughter of the ranch’s cook who is locked in a love triangle with Christopher and John.”

Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy are expected to reprise their roles of Sue Ellen and Bobby, respectively. Larry Hagman has apparently verbally agreed to return as J.R. but hasn’t signed anything yet.
