Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t he a conservative?

Hagman was the epitome of hypocrisy. A pot toking alcoholic ex-cigarette smoker who died of throat cancer after receiving a liver transplant while admonishing against smoking.

I don't think he was particularly conservative, but he remained married to the same woman since 1954, which by Hollywood standards, is probably a record.

I don’t believe so.

He was a pot enthusiast and blew out 2 livers drinking. He lost his gig as a liver transplant spokesman trying to raise awareness to the shortages of transplants after blowing out a transplant very quickly.. 16,000 folks die each year waiting for a liver. He destroyed his first transplanted liver within several years and bought a second.

Only a few, Mickey Mantle and John Phillips come to mind, have the resources and clout to buy-pass the transplant waiting list like Larry.

Rest in peace, but he doesn’t deserve much respect for his personal life.

“Hagman has been a member of the Peace and Freedom Party since the 1960s.[10] Hagman derided President George W. Bush, a fellow Texan, before the Iraq War. At a signing for his book he described Bush as “A sad figure, not too well educated, who doesn’t get out of America much. He’s leading the country towards fascism”.[11]”

I understand Larry was a liberal, but he had a brother, Gary Hagman, not Gary Ewing, who ran for the Texas State Senate as a Republican, probably in the 1980s.

doubtful: from wikipedia: “Hagman derided President George W. Bush, a fellow Texan, before the Iraq War. At a signing for his book he described Bush as “A sad figure, not too well educated, who doesn’t get out of America much. He’s leading the country towards fascism”.[23]”

and he was for alternate energy to the tune of Ed Begley, Jr.: “In a 2007 interview, Hagman talked about how he was a major proponent of alternative energy.[30] On an episode of Living With Ed, Hagman and his wife showed actor Ed Begley, Jr. their solar powered, super energy efficient home and talked about their green lifestyle. In early 2010, the couple put their 43-acre Ojai estate (called “Heaven”, which they purchased in 1991) up for sale; it was valued at $9.5 million.[31]”

Sad to read that his mother, Mary Martin (a.k.a. Peter Pan) dumped him and his father for her career...
