Why Patrick Duffy Thinks 'Dallas' Is The Best Job In The Biz

Patrick Duffy never thought he'd be playing Bobby Ewing for decades, but as "Dallas" reboot after "Dallas" reboot popped up, the actor never really left his iconic character behind.

Duffy now stars as Ewing on TNT's version of "Dallas," which just began its third season and follows the next generation of Ewings. The star stopped by HuffPost Live to talk about the many incarnations of "Dallas," but he never expected a revamped version of the show. "We had bled that thing dry by the time we hit 13 years," he said of the original series. "We knew it was time."

Watch the whole interview above for more old school "Dallas" nostalgia.

"Dallas" airs Monday at 9 p.m. EST on TNT.
