(NEW YORK) — Dallas star Larry Hagman died in November, but he’s one of the stars featured in an upcoming one-hour special edition of the CBS celebrity reality show, I Get That a Lot.
The show places stars in ordinary jobs to confuse customers who can’t decide if it’s the actual celebrity or an astonishing look-alike. This past September, Hagman filmed a segment in which he posed as a Costco employee handing out free samples of barbecue sauce.
Eric Schotz, the executive producer of I Get That a Lot, says the late actor was “a prankster at heart.”
“He loved the fact that he could interact with his fans and the fans’ reactions when they found out it was him are priceless,” Schotz adds.
The I Get That a Lot special also features Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan working as an outdoor apparel salesman; actress Jane Seymour posing as an inept home goods store greeter; actor and comedian Cheech Marin behind the counter at a party supply store; NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon selling automotive supplies; and Bruce Jenner pretending to be a shoe salesman for a high-end boutique.
The I Get That a Lot special airs Wednesday, Jan. 9, on CBS.
