Ken Kercheval, 'Dallas' star, dead at 83

Dallas actor Ken Kercheval, who played J R Ewing's rival Cliff Barnes, has passed away.

His agent, Jeff Fisher, confirmed the death but said the cause was being kept private by the family.

He expressed fondness for his beleaguered character, also part of two TV '90s movies, in a 2012 interview with a "Dallas" fan website, The Dallas Decoder.

Kercheval, along with Dallas co-star Larry Hagman, who played J.R., appeared in all seasons of the prime time serial.

Ken Kercheval, famously known for his role as Cliff Barnes on the CBS series "Dallas", has died, Fox News can confirm.

"From the very beginning, Cliff would always get defeated by J.R.", Mr. Kercheval once told an interviewer, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "If I did something that wasn't quite right, it's because I had to". He studied at the University of IN and the University of the Pacific, according to profiles.

His big-screen credits included "Pretty Poison" (1968), "The Seven-Ups" (1973) and "Network" (1976).

Ken Kercheval attends the Television Academy 70th Anniversary Celebration, in Los Angeles, California, on June 2, 2016.

Before and after Dallas, Kercheval appeared on other series like Kojak, The New Mike Hammer, Starsky & Hutch, L.A. Law, Crossing Jordan, Diagnosis: Murder and ER.
