Friday Night Lights
This Friday Night Lights fan has been on the edge of my bleacher seat waiting for the official word that a movie is coming to a theatre near me. Until then, I’ll take the updates from the field.
The ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas this past weekend had some of the cast members reuniting, including a surprise visit from Coach (Kyle Chandler) and Tami Taylor (Connie Britton). Find out if there will ever be a reunion movie after the jump! READ MORE
According to Deadline, All My Children alum Natalie Hall (ex-Colby) has landed a new gig. The actress has been cast in The CW’s new pilot Oxygen. The show will follow a normal teenage girl, Emery (Aimee Teegarden), who falls for an alien boy, Roman (Matt Lanter), when nine aliens, dubbed The Orions, are integrated into her high school.
The former Pretty Little Liars bad girl will play a human named Taylor, the school’s Queen Bee. Taylor’s friendship with Emery will be strained when the latter gets close to The Orions. READ MORE
Michael B. Jordan's career has come a long ways since his early acting gigs on HBO’s The Wire and ABC’s All My Children. He currently appears on NBC’s family drama Parenthood and is must see on the upcoming broadcast run of Friday Night Lights. During an interview with WTAM 1100 Cleveland, Jordan was asked how he felt about the All My Children cancellation rumors.
IHR: You got your start on (ABC soap) All My Children, and lately there's been talk that the show may be canceled. How do you feel about that?
Michael: It's dear to my heart because that's where I kind of got my chops from, so it's a little sad to see it go, but I'm all about evolution and change. There was an era for soap operas, and there was a time when soap operas were the thing to watch. But, seeing how reality TV is taking over that time slot, it's kind of like pushing them out like, 'Hey, old guys, it's over for you.' I'm sad, but at the same time I'm privileged to see a new era coming about. Still, if I was on a soap, I'd be pissed!
Friday Night Lights returns to NBC for its final broadcast season April 15.
As if my DC/PC cohort Regan Cellura didn't have enough reasons to drool over The Bachelor star-turned-daytime talk show host Dr. Travis Stork, now the hunky E.R. physician has admitted his favorite series is Regan's beloved Friday Night Lights.
"'Friday Night Lights' is my favorite show for the last few years. That's the show that I can't miss," says Dr. Stork. "I've never seen a show that was of higher quality that people didn't watch." READ MORE
