Hagman, Turner, Shields go in for Nip/Tuck

Larry Hagman, Kathleen Turner, and Brooke Shields will guest-star on cable channel FX's Nip/Tuck next season.

Hagman will play the much older husband of a beautiful thirtysomething woman (Sanaa Lathan), who buys McNamara/Troy, the Miami-based plastic surgery practice of Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon).

Turner will play Cindy Plumb, a scotch- and cigarette-voiced phone-sex operator who comes to McNamara/Troy to rejuvenate her voice through a vocal cord surgery.

Shields will appear in the Nip/Tuck fourth-season opener as Dr. Wolper, a shrink in whom Troy confides.

Hagman is best known for his roles in Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie. Turner voices one of the characters in Sony's upcoming animated feature Monster House. Shields starred in Suddenly Susan, which ran for four seasons on NBC.

This sounds to me as though Larry is going to portray another "ruthless businessman" and try to make the series his own. [And don't think he won't!]
