After a successful first season, DALLAS is going to be bigger and better for its second, and towards that end, is pumping up the cast with new hires like Judith Light (Karen, ONE LIFE TO LIVE)! According to TV Line, the actress is set to join the primetime sudser as "an authoritative and controlling battle-axe who will fight to the death to protect the people she loves. And for the people she loves, she uses every psychological trick in the book to make them do what she wants."

Current speculation is that Light will be playing the mother to Brenda Strong's Ann, but who cares what role she's playing? We just can't wait to watch her go toe-to-toe with JR and Sue Ellen!
