"Friday Night Lights" -- How To Cast A Role
You gotta love Hollywood. "Friday Night Lights" was a very good book and a very good movie. Now the drama about smalltown life and the high school football team that means everything to the townspeople is coming to NBC as a drama. But how's this for casting? The real life coach is on the left. Billy Bob Thornton (on the right) played him in the movie. And now Kyle Chandler (bottom) plays him on TV. If they make a version for downloading, they're going to have to resurrect Montgomery Clift to keep this up.
