Actor talks about his upcoming EP, composing music for the show and chances for Season 4 renewal from TNT
Fans have developed a love-hate relationship with Josh Henderson’s John Ross Ewing on TNT’s “Dallas” reboot, but it was all love when he answered their questions during a new episode of TheWrap’s series “Drinking With the Stars.”
The actor and musician joined TheWrap’s executive editor Joseph Kapsch for drinks at Riviera 31 in the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, where he talked about his music, his recent movie role and even answered some Twitter questions from fans.

While it hasn’t happened yet, Henderson said that he was still trying to get some of his original musical compositions onto the show. It’s just about finding the right combination of scene and music.
“I started in music before I was an actor. I’ve never really stopped,” he told TheWrap. “I continue to write music not only for myself as an artist, but also for the show.”
The actor has an EP of music that he’ll be releasing soon digitally, explaining that these songs were reflective of Josh Henderson the artist, and not necessarily John Ross Ewing the character. That said, he admitted there could be some cross-influence going on.
During a break from “Dallas,” Henderson filmed a movie called “Swelter,” which he described as a “modern-day Western.”
“I play a character named Boyd who is a complete sociopath,” Henderson said. “He doesn’t have a lot to say, but he definitely likes to pull the trigger on a gun.”
The movie is about a group of guys who break out of prison after a decade to go find the money they buried in the casino robbery that got them locked up in the first place. It co-stars Alfred Molina, Lennie James, Catalina Sandino, Brad Carter and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Finally, Josh took some time to answer fan questions from Twitter. He talked line dancing, Season 4 chances for “Dallas,” and John Ross‘ “pocketful of moves” for the remainder of Season 3.
“Dallas” airs new episodes on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.
