GALLERY: 'Friday Night Lights' Stars Ready For Their Close-Ups

If you're like us, you love the holiday season, but kinda wish you could spend it in Dillon, Texas, with the Taylor family.

Actually, this year, you almost can. Coach himself, Kyle Chandler, stars in "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty," while Mrs. Coach Connie Britton graces the big screen in "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas." As for the young-uns, you've probably already caught Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) in theaters in "Red Dawn" and might want to make a date to see Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) in "In Our Nature" this month.

In fact, why wait to get a good look at them? We figured it was time to pay homage to the (incredibly attractive) cast of "Friday Night Lights" as they're about to see their names in lights for real. And, thus, we were inspired to create this gallery of the "Friday Night Lights" gang in movies, past, present and future. We urge you to click through with clear eyes and full hearts.

Once again, a little birdie named Twitter is the source for our excitement. According to a Tweet from Grantland's EiC Bill Simmons, writer/director Peter Berg already has plans for a movie. TV Line's Michael Ausiello checked out the story and says it holds water. Get More »

Amidst all the apocalypse panic and speculation sweeping the world, somewhere between the Mayan 2012 peeps and that internet preacher guy that says the world is kaput this coming Saturday, lies Steve Carell. That is to say, the Steve Carell/Keira Knightley indie dramedy "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," where the two stars play neighbors trying to find his childhood sweetheart before an asteroid makes mincemeat out of Earth, is amassing many followers (read: co-stars).

The Playlist says Melinda Dillon (a.k.a. hot mom from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"), Melanie Lynskey ("Two and a Half Men" neighbor), genius stand-up turned Pixar rat Patton Oswalt, T.J. Miller (the sarcastic guy in "Cloverfield"), "Human Giant" funnyman Rob Huebel, Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights"), and Mark Moses (Duck on "Mad Men") have all drank the film's Kool-Aid.
