Travolta dropped from 'Dallas'




Hey, remember that planned Dallas movie that no one asked for, cares about or plans to see? Well, John Travolta just got himself fired from it. The New York Post says Travolta was given a “nice seven-figure 'gift’” to vacate the role of J.R. Ewing, a source said. Must be a disappointment to Travolta, who reportedly snagged roles for five family members in the film. The Post says Ben Stiller is now set to play J.R. (we’ll let you decide whether this is a step up or a step down). Reps for both actors declined to comment. Hey, if The Juice* was an actor, we wouldn’t want anyone attaching our names to this bomb-in-waiting, either.
