The ashes of former “Dallas” star Larry Hagman are to be scattered around the world after two private ceremonies in Texas and California this week, his agent has said.

The actor, who as unscrupulous oil magnate J.R. Ewing captivated the hit show’s global audience for more than a decade, died last week after complications arising from throat cancer.

“His family will decide what to do with his ashes,” agent John Castonia said in a video published on “Entertainment Tonight’s” website, confirming that there will be no official burial.

“He’ll be spread around the world, basically. His son travels a great deal, and I know it’ll give Larry great pleasure,” Mr. Castonia said.

There is some talk of a statue being erected in Dallas to mark the late actor’s place in the affections of Texans after his 1978-91 role in the original show, which has been revived recently on the TNT network.

“It would be a fine tribute to him,” Mr. Castonia said of Hagman, who was 81 when he died Friday at Medical City Dallas Hospital.
