Producers of the "Dallas" re-boot are scrambling to change the show's storyline days after the death of star Larry Hagman.
They are currently shooting the second series of the relaunched series and Hagman had filmed several episodes before he became ill.
Now, the show's writing team will have to alter the planned storyline. (Hagman's character vowed to launch a battle for control of the family's business empire at the close of the debut season earlier this year.)
A show rep says, "Dallas is midway in production on Season 2 and this sad news will be incorporated into the storyline... The team are dealing with the death before they consider the writing possibilities."
Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan are suddenly, pals.
In fact, he recently sent Lohan a $100,000 check to cover the actress' six-figure tax bill.
Charlie and Lindsay became close pals while on the set of "Scary Movie 5" back in September.
At one point, Lindsay mentioned her ongoing tax problems.
Sources say Charlie offered to cut her a check then, but Lindsay refused.
Last week, Lindsay's biz manager received a check from Charlie for $100,000.
According to TMZ, Lindsay was blown away by Charlie's generosity and applied the money to her outstanding tax bill.
She owed Uncle Sam $233,904 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010.

And sources say the actress is going to court early this week to get a restraining order against Aubry for an indefinite period of time.

Chris Brown fired back at a comedy writer who posted a few funny tweets about him.
Jenny Johnson has poked fun at Brown ever since his 2009 arrest for beating Rihanna, including her popular tweet that said, "Call me old fashioned, but Chris Brown should be in prison."
However, the tweet that grabbed Brown's attention said, "I know! Being a worthless piece of shit can really age a person. RT @chrisbrown: I look old as f**k! I'm only 23..."
Brown responded, “Take out them teeth while you’re sucking my d**k, HO*.”
After several more obscene exchanges, he wrote, “Let me leave this b***h alone…It’s good to know my worth by listening to a b***h that is worthless.”
A Denver man is accused of stealing Tim Allen’s customized 1996 Chevy Impala.
The suspect (Faustino Ibarra) claims he "didn’t break into (Allen’s) garage". The man claims the actor "left the door open and he left me the keys so I could get the car and take it to Denver.”
The man's family found the car outside their home Friday night and called police.
But there’s a twist.
A reporter asked the suspect: “You obviously know this is Tim Allen`s car?”
The suspect replied: “He’s my dad."
He claims Allen adopted him years ago and that Allen had allowed him to take the car.
In his words: “I emailed my dad the morning that I got the car in and everything is fine and I’ve got the car and it`s ready for you and we need to talk about me coming to live with you."
The suspect argues, “I don`t care how it sounds, I know who I am. He knows who I am. He knows who he is."
He denies that he has mental health issues and says no matter what anyone thinks, his alleged father, the actor will not pursue charges.
Mayim Bialik and husband Michael Stone announced the are splitting after nine years.
They have two kids.

Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Hounsou confirmed rumors they've split ... and did so a while ago!
The couple has "officially separated" after five-and-a-half years together.
Simmons confirmed the news herself on Twitter, posting "There have been quite a few hurtful rumors circulating. The truth is Djimon+I have been separated for some time."
The two never legally married in the US. They have one son together: 3.5-year-old Kenzo Lee Hounsou.
Emma Stone has a sex tape, and it's not with her “Amazing Spider-Man” co-star and boyfriend Andrew Garfield.
One insider claims the 24-year-old actress has a wild streak that is coming out in the form of a homemade sex romp on video.
The source says that the tape was “long before she started dating Andrew Garfield, and before she really became a household name.”
The source adds, “She was just young and probably thought nothing would ever come of it."
The the tape has not been shopped around yet, but it remains in the hands of the person she made it with.
The Beatles audition that was rejected by a record label executive is called the biggest blunder in pop history.
The tape from that audition will go up for auction tomorrow at an auction in London.
The 10-song tape was recorded on New Year's Day, 1962, at the Decca record label studios in London.
Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Pete Best - who would later be replaced on drums by Ringo Starr - performed up to 15 songs at the session, 10 of which appear on the tape.
The tape is expected to sell for between $29,000 and $32,000. It comes with a hand-written track list and black-and-white photograph of the musicians posing in leather jackets.
Decca's senior A&R representative Dick Rowe became known as "the man who turned down the Beatles." He decided against signing them in favor of Brian Poole & The Tremeloes, who also auditioned that day.
Rowe also went on to sign the Rolling Stones, who went on to become one of the biggest acts in British rock.
Mick Jagger says an elderly lady showed him naked photos.
It’s one of the many stories in his new biography.
In New York, Mick “was stopped on the street by a grey haired, grandmotherly woman who said she had a photograph she wanted to show him. It proved to be of herself, lying on a bed, naked, with legs spread wide. When Mick showed distaste, the vintage vamp grabbed his hair and pulled him to the ground. Two or three of the NYPD minders had to work quite hard to disentangle them."
In Texas, Mick come close to being covered in butter before the band's tour manager stepped in: He “was approached by a young blonde woman who introduced herself as 'The Butter Queen' and said her handbag contained a pound and a half of butter which she wanted to spread all over Mick's nude body, then lick off. Any other Stone would do equally well, she said, but she time was short, as she had to collect her young son from school."
Frank Sinatra's assistant was his high school buddy and, after working for him for 50 years, he offered juicy details of the legendary singer's bad behavior and his rude treatment of the women who loved him.
He told a story of when Sinatra ordered him to throw a plate of spare ribs covered in sauce in the face of a glamorous starlet he was dating.
During another incident, Sinatra sent him to find his then-wife Ava Gardner's wedding ring after she threw it out of a 14-story hotel room window during an explosive fight.
He also claimed he kept $20,000 in his pocket for Sinatra and told about the time that Sinatra didn’t want him to gamble, so he sent a tall blonde to his hotel room that kept him inside the room for three days.
Actress Elizabeth Montgomery was TV's sweetheart, but a new book reveals her 'other' life as a highly desirable woman in Hollywood.
Off-screen, the blonde beauty struggled to find happiness, running through four rocky marriages and bewitching many of Hollywood's leading men.
The book claims that she cast a spell on such stars as Elvis Presley, Dean Martin and Gary Cooper.
As the daughter of movie legend, Robert Montgomery, she reportedly suffered from a "father complex", and often fell in love with older men and sought out troubled lovers who abused her physically and mentally.
One source said, “She was always looking for the 'bad boy', which may have been part of her rebellion against her father.”
In the early Sixties, she became a close friend of President John F Kennedy, but Montgomery never spoke about whether or not they shared a romance.
Montgomery was 62 years old when she died of cancer in 1995. She married four times and had three children with her third husband, “Bewitched” producer Bill Asher.

She Tweeted: "All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover."
Rhi Rhi and Brown were seen at a nightclub after his concert in Berlin.
Rihanna gave fans a peek into the hotel life between her and her ex Chris Brown by Tweeting a steamy pic!

Psy's "Gangnam Style" passed Justin Bieber's "Baby" to become the most-watched YouTube video of all time.
The video has more than 815 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on July 15th.
Justin Bieber's "Baby," had been watched more than 803 million times since it was posted in February 2010.
Psy Tweeted: "#GangnamStyle just became the most watched video @YouTube! #History."
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, "Gangnam Style" already has the title for "most liked" video in YouTube history with more than 2 million "likes".
The video for LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" is second with more than 1.6 million "likes." Bieber's "Baby" is no. 3 in that category.
A Russian court dismissed a lawsuit that asked for millions of dollars in damages from Madonna for traumatizing minors by speaking up for gay rights during a concert in the country.
The ruling came after a one-day hearing where plaintiffs claimed that Madonna's so-called "propaganda of perversion" would negatively affect Russia's birthrate and "erode the nation's defense capability by depriving the country of future soldiers."
At one point, the judge threatened to expel journalists from the courtroom if they laughed too much.
In the end, the court threw out the Trade Union of Russian Citizens' lawsuit and the 333 million rubles ($10.7 million) it wanted sought from Madge for exposing youths to "homosexual propaganda."
Madonna wasn’t at the trial and her publicist wouldn't comment about it.
Prosecutors decided not to file any charges against Justin Bieber after investigators couldn’t find any evidence that he kicked and punched a photographer after leaving a movie theater.
Police had asked prosecutors to consider filing a misdemeanor battery charge against Justin, but investigators didn’t find any visible injuries, video or photographs to confirm what the photographer had told them.
This past May, Justin was leaving a theater in Calabasas, California with Selena Gomez when he had the encounter in a parking lot. A doctor found only superficial injuries, and police didn’t see any injuries on the paparazzo.
Authorities also interviewed witnesses and none of them said he kicked the man. They also claimed the guy kept taking photos as Justin and Selena left.
No comment from Justin or his camp.
Taylor Swift admitted that she doesn't have a clue about life.
The 22-year-old said: "I have so much to learn. I know nothing compared to what I'm going to know someday. I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate. I don’t think there’s an option for me to fall in love slowly, or at medium speed. I either do or I don’t."
"I don’t think it through, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You don’t look before you leap, which is like, ‘Yay, this is awesome! Let’s not think twice!’ And then you’re like, ‘We used to be flying. Now we’re falling. What’s happening?’"
Taylor did say she has figured out one thing: she finds bad boys appealing.
She said: "There’s a really interesting charisma involved. They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all. I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore."
One Direction scored its second No. 1 album in less than a year. "Take Me Home" led the Billboard 200 chart with 540,000 copies sold in its first week. It's the third-largest debut sales week of the year, just behind Taylor Swift's "Red" and Mumford & Sons' "Babel".
The guys also became the first group to debut at No. 1 with their first two albums since Danity Kane did it with "Welcome to the Dollhouse" in 2008 and its self-titled debut in 2006.
Also, One Direction is the second act this year to have a pair of No. 1 albums within 12 months' time. Justin Bieber did it with "Believe" in July, which cameeight months after he hit No. 1 with "Under the Mistletoe."
Rihanna's "Diamonds" is her 12th chart-topping single. That mark ties her with Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most No. 1s in the 54-year history of the Billboard chart.
Rihanna is now behind only the Beatles (20 #1s), Mariah Carey (18) and Michael Jackson (13 solo #1s) for the most Hot 100 chart toppers of all time.
Rihanna also became the fastest female solo artist to get to 12 No. 1 singles. She did it in six years and seven months. That number is just behind the Beatles (two years, four months) and the Supremes (five years, four months).
Lady Gaga found 35 fans hiding in her garage while she was preparing a midnight snack in the nude on Thanksgiving.
Gaga Tweeted how she had spotted the army of fans on the security camera footage at her house. Gaga didn’t call police about it, either.
She wrote: "#MONSTERFACT when gaga is asleep try to break into the garage, sing loud as possible, + ring the doorbell repeatedly #happeningnow #badkids."
"thanksgiving story: woke up for leftovers in kitchen (naked)- stumbled on security camera revealing 35 monsters in my garage #why #iloveu"
"I should be mad I guess except I tried to figure out how to slide stuffing under the door, but there's no cat-flap."
A survey by hotel chain Travelodge found that Adele's music is the most popular to fall asleep to.
She was followed by Coldplay, who topped the poll in 2008 and 2010.
Snow Patrol and One Direction were also featured in the Travelodge Top Five.
Bruno Mars wrote a song specifically intended to be played in strip clubs.
He decided to write the club orientated track after hearing "Just The Way You Are" being played while he partied in a Paris strip club with his entourage.
He said: "After a concert in Paris, we went to a strip club. The promoter got on the mic and said, 'We have a special guest, Bruno Mars!', and then played 'Just The Way You Are'. That's the worst thing to hear in that environment, so I resolved to write a good one."
The new track is called "Money Make Her Smile". Bruno's new album, "Unorthodox Jukebox", drops next month.
One Direction's Harry Styles allegedly invited Taylor Swift to meet his parents at a secret Christmas party his group are hosting.
Harry is holding the party with Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan after their show in New York this week.
A source told the UK's Sun: “He’s been very hush-hush about Taylor but this is the perfect chance to introduce her to them.”
Harry and Taylor are rumored to be dating. He allegedly met her mom while she was rehearsing for her performance on the "X Factor".
Chris Brown canceled a stadium concert in Guyana after protests over his 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Chris was scheduled to headline the show on December 26th but women's rights groups and lawmakers felt he shouldn’t be welcome in Guyana just three years after assaulting Rihanna.
The concert promoter claimed Chris backed out because of "discomfort with the protests." No comment from Chris or his camp.
Ke$ha album, "Warrior," drops November 30th. In it, she collaborated with The Strokes' Julian Casablancas and Fabrizio Moretti and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. She admitted that she wasn't even sure how Casablancas and Moretti got involved on the project.
Ke$ha said: "They just were down, and I was down. A friend of mine plays with Julian and we kind of knew each other, and Julian really likes Dr. Luke so they were talking, and it kind of happened, oddly organically and in a strange way. I'm a huge fan of their music, and they're on one of my favorite songs on the record."
"They are part of a long list of some of my favorite bands that have actually collaborated with me on 'Warrior'. It's really exciting for me to work with people that are unexpected. I hope people freak out. I kind of freaked out."
When it came to getting Patrick Carney, Ke$ha admitted it was all about calling on a friend.
She said: "He's a close friend. I really wanted to capture that essence that my mom used to talk about - all my favorite records were made of people being friends and jamming and making music in an organic, spontaneous way, and I wanted to capture as much of that on a pop record as I could."
Cher had to rush-release her new single after it was leaked online at the beginning of the week.
She had hoped to take her time to record a video for "Woman's World" before releasing the track, but a snippet of the song appeared on the Internet last month and the full track leaked online last week. That forced her to change her plans.
Cher Tweeted: "We thought we had time, but it started popping all over the world!"
The track is the first single from Cher's first studio album since 2001. It features songs written for her by Pink and Lady Gaga.
More details will be announced soon.
One Direction debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with its second album, "Take Me Home." The set sold 540,000 copies in its first week. Only Taylor Swift's "Red" and Mumford & Sons' "Babel" had better first-week sales.

Paul McCartney regrets the way that the image of his Beatles bandmate John Lennon has been formed since his death.
Paul said: "There is this period of John which is all pre-Beatles, pre-huge fame, pre-drugs – and it is another John completely – that was always right there until the end. He got much sweeter, too, once he settled in New York. Once he was reunited with Yoko, and they had Sean, he became this sweet personality again then when he was more comfortable with himself."
"But the acerbic John is the one we know and love, you know, because he was clever with it, so it was very attractive. But, for me, I have more than a slight affection for the John I knew ten, when we were first writing songs, when we would try and do things the old songwriters had done."
"I slightly regret the way John's image has formed, and because he died so tragically it has become set in concrete. The acerbic side was there but it was only part of him. He was also such a sweet, lovely man – a really sweet guy."
