Larry Hagman, whose masterful portrayal of the charmingly loathsome J.R. Ewing on "Dallas" brought him his greatest stardom, has died at the age of 81. That role on CBS' long-running nighttime soap opera was a ratings bonanza for the network, particularly the "Who shot J.R.?" story twist.

Years before "Dallas," Hagman gained TV fame as a nice guy with the fluffy 1965-70 NBC comedy "I Dream of Jeannie." He played Capt. Tony Nelson, an astronaut whose life is disrupted when he finds a comely genie, portrayed by Barbara Eden, and takes her home to live with him.

He also starred in two short-lived sitcoms, "The Good Life" (NBC, 1971-72) and "Here We Go Again" (ABC, 1973). His film work included well-regarded performances in "The Group," ''Harry and Tonto" and "Primary Colors."

Here, in images, are some of Hagman's memorable moments:
