Next, keep an eye out for veteran Larry Hagman who will make his mark with the return of Dallas on June 13. The TNT reboot will focus on the next generation of Southern schemers, but still features Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray reprising their iconic roles. Joining them as the latest Longhorn lookers are Josh Henderson as John Ross Ewing, Jesse Metcalfe as his brother Christopher and Fast & Furious' Jordana Brewster.

And who can forget Charlie Sheen, who's back with his bad boy antics in FX 's Anger Management, premiering June 28.
