Dallas Star Spotlight: Josh Henderson

I’m pretty new to Pinterest and have a board dedicated to Dallas, of course. Judging from my short time on this picture-sharing site, I can say that Josh Henderson, who plays sexy John Ross Ewing, is shaping up to be one of the show’s breakout stars. The photo above of Josh in his Stetson hat is the most repinned photo on my board and I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. Bad boys always sell. Larry Hagman can vouch to this from his heyday as JR in the 1980s and history may be repeating itself. Josh definitely has all the makings of a hot new star. He’s a great-looking guy playing a complicated character. A look at his profile on IMDB reveals he has plenty of experience playing rakish guys. His most famous role prior to John Ross was as Edie Britt’s nephew Austin on ABC’s Desperate Housewives in 2007. He followed that role with a short stint on The CW’s  90210 playing shifty Sean Cavanaugh in 2008. Dallas, though, is definitely his big break.


Born on October 21, 1981 in, appropriately enough, Dallas, Texas.

On the big screen he’s appeared opposite Elisha Cuthbert in “The Girl Next Door” and appeared with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan in “Step Up.”

His past girlfriends include Kaley Cuoco and Ashlee Simpson.

His Twitter feed (where he spends a lot of time from what I can tell) is @JoshHenderson
