2012: Dallas

Dallas (TNT)

A continuation of the iconic 80s show, this one centers on J.R. and Bobby Ewing’s sons, J.R. and Christopher and their quest for oil wealth. Can’t help but think that with a Texas setting and plenty of Tex-Mex stars available it’s weird that there are none in the cast, but hey, at least there is a Latino presence: Brazilian American Jordana Brewster, 31 (Fast Five), plays Elena, the daughter of a Ewing maid played by Cuban American actress Marlene Forte (House of Payne). Argentinian American Julie Gonzalo, 30 (Eli Stone) is set as Christopher Ewing’s fiancée.
