‘Dallas’ season 3 adds Latin gambler as show moves on without Larry Hagman

Fans of new Dallas TV series have had few hints or previews of the upcoming third season.

Now, according to E! News, the show is preparing to introduce a brand-new series regular character in Nicholas Trevino.

The character is of Latin heritage, and is a charming and a bit of a risk-taker when it comes to his gambling. He also travels a bit off of the beaten path, and thus could be handled that “lone wolf” label pretty easily.

Earlier this month star Jesse Metcalfe spoke at the Spring 2014 Runway Show during New York Fashion Week about season three and the loss of Larry Hagman.

“The biggest challenge for everyone was getting over the loss of Larry Hagman. I know the writing team had to completely rewrite the second half of the second season. I thought they did a tremendous job. And with that came a lot of very emotional scenes that were challenging from an acting standpoint, but I think it really came off well, and we were all really proud of those later episodes.”

When asked about spoilers and what to expect, Metcalfe didn’t seem to know.

“I wish I had a clue. We haven’t [started filming]. We leave the third week of September and start filming October 2. Season 3 starts airing in February 2014. I can tell you that I love what they’ve written for my character so far. The cool thing about acting is you get to learn all these different skill sets. I come on the South Fork Ranch, and I have to learn how to ride a horse. Then, [in] Season 2, I got to learn how to ride a stock car. My character had this methane-powered Nascar storyline. So I don’t know what they have in store for me for Season 3, but I’m sure it’s going to be exciting and cool.”
