Time: Coach Taylor is an Actual Hero

This Friday Night Lights article is so worth pulling out of the multitude of great press for some special attention:

(Kyle Chandler, we hope you are in a position today to enjoy the much deserved praise being directed your way in the press, as well as to cast, writers, and crew.)

  1. This is my favorite part of the article:

    "And Taylor's move, pitting him against longer odds, establishes him as the true protagonist of the show. At a time when many of the best TV dramas feature antiheroes (House, Breaking Bad, Mad Men), he's a rarity: an example of classical virtues — integrity, loyalty — depicted without gush or cynicism. His signature locker-room slogan "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" would be moving regardless, but the Gary Cooperlike Chandler makes us see the grit and belief with which Taylor delivers it, even when he's pumping up a team he knows probably will lose."

    KC brings such an earnest, honest quality to this role, as he has with so many other roles. Light comes through him. He's a great actor (the real deal), a seasoned pro who has mastered his craft over the years. He's at the top of his game, and it's an honor to witness him receive well deserved recognition from big press. :) Give this man an Emmy nod!!
