The revival of "Dallas" sadly must bid farewell to Larry Hagman on an upcoming episode, but the show is temporarily adding another retro icon. Lee Majors, who starred as bionic man Col. Steve Austin in "The Six Million Dollar Man," will come to Southfork for two episodes, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Majors played the super-strong astronaut-turned-secret agent from 1973-1978 on the ABC show, and also starred as a stuntman/bounty hunter on the 1980s show "The Fall Guy."

He's perhaps equally famous for being married to Farrah Fawcett (then Farrah Fawcett-Majors) at the peak of her "Charlie's Angels" fame.

Majors, now 73, will play an old flame of Sue Ellen Ewing who re-enters her life, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"Dallas" icon Larry Hagman, who played oil baron J.R. Ewing, died in November at age 81. He had filmed six episodes of the TNT series' second season before his death.
