A Creative End for Larry Hagman

Larry HagmanIn Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, actor Larry Hagman had a fun Q&A with Andrew Goldman in the “Talk” column. He’s got an interesting take on funeral planning.

The online version is titled “The Rollicking Life of Larry Hagman” and he talks about a mescaline trip on an Indian reservation, being drunk most of the time he played J.R. Ewing on the TV show “Dallas” and his love of soaking in hot water.

But it’s the last answer that I love the best:

You wrote in your memoir, “Hello Darlin’,” that when you die, you want to be ground up in a wood chipper like Steve Buscemi’s character in the movie “Fargo.” Is this actually set down in your will?

“Well, it’s hard to set down chipping. I don’t think that’s allowed. But I did want to be spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 to 300 people. People would eat a little of Larry.”
