Actress Jordana Brewster has joined the cast of TNT’s Dallas reboot. According to TVLine the actress has won a high profile role on the planned revival of the iconic 1980s super-soap. Brewster will play Elena, the daughter of the ranch cook who is involved in a love triangle between cousins Christopher and John Ewing.
The pilot focuses on the “next generation” of the Ewing family; Christopher who is the son of Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) and Pam Ewing (Victoria Principle) and cousin John Ross Ewing son of JR (Larry Hagman) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray). The two Ewings clash over the future of Ewing Oil and will likely be locked in a bitter feud as so often their two fathers were.
Dallas veterans Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray have both signed up for the revival while Larry Hagman has reportedly agreed to appear but has yet to sign a contract. Jordana Brewster will be familiar for her roles on Chuck, Dark Blue and the forthcoming The Fast and the Furious sequel Fast Five.
