JR Ewing’s headed to Wisteria Lane. Primetime soap opera icon Larry Hagman has inked a deal to appear as a guest star in Desperate Housewives in early 2011, The Hollywood Reporter said Thursday.

The veteran Dallas actor will play a love interest of Polly Bergen’s character Stella Wingfield, who is the mother of Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman).

Hagman is thrilled to be playing opposite a “big star” such as Bergen, but admits he’s never seen a single episode of the Enmmy-winning dramedy. Luckily, he has the holiday to catch up — thanks to TV-on-demand service Hulu to catch up.

“I just decided, and am going to shoot next week. I can watch a hundred episodes on my iPad. I never watch television, so I better get started so I can see what the show’s all about.”
