"J.R." begins battle with cancer

(CNN) -- Actor Larry Hagman said Friday that he has been diagnosed with cancer, but noted "it is a very common and treatable form" of the disease.

Larry Hagman, 80, is best known for his role as "J.R." in the long-running TV series "Dallas" (1978-1991)

"As J.R I could get away with anything -- bribery, blackmail and adultery," Hagman said. "But I got caught by cancer."

In 1995, Hagman received a liver transplant that ultimately saved his life, as he was battling cirrhosis.

Thoughts and prayer for a successful treatment and speedy recovery!
