For the rest of us, Ted Danson and Shelley Long set the bar for small-screen chemistry on "Cheers." Here are 10 other couples who sizzled:

Ranking FNLs Actors' Post FNLs Careers

Kyle Chandler

It makes sense that the adults on Friday Night Lights, who have longer resumes and don’t have to worry about getting stuck in teen fare, would have an easier path once the show ended. And after five career-defining seasons as Eric Taylor, Kyle Chandler is getting what he deserves. He was a slightly darker version of Coach Taylor in J.J. Abrams’ critic-pleasing blockbuster Super 8, and Argo, a film about the Iran hostage crisis in which he plays Jimmy Carter’s chief of staff, Hamilton Jordan, comes out later this year. With more high-profile projects in the pipeline — particularly Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, about the team of Navy Seals who killed Osama bin Laden – Chandler is bound to become Hollywood’s top choice for no-bullshit good guy roles.

Casting Pilot Season: Who's In, Who's Out and Who'd Never

Pilot Season Talent

Kevin Bacon is the most boldface name to say yes so far, as Kyle Chandler, James Marsden, Anna Kendrick and Rose Byrne top the list of those being wooed.

With pilot season under way, Hollywood’s talent community is dusting off its résumés and readying for its ego boost.

The actors most in-demand fall into a handful of categories. First are those who are being wooed by many but unlikely to accept, a group that includes Friday Night LightsKyle Chandler and X-Men’s James Marsden (more likely to do cable), as well as Little Miss Sunshine’s Greg Kinnear, BridesmaidsRose Byrne and Up in the Air’s Anna Kendrick (more likely to do movies). Then there are those expected to accept one of multiple projects: Rome’s James Purefoy, who at press time had four offers and has since nabbed a role opposite Kevin Bacon in Kevin Williamson's Fox drama, along with comedy draw Justin Long. Next come those weighing a single offer who could potentially say yes — among them movie stars like Jane Fonda, in talks for an NBC comedy. And finally, the subset that is being approached but nobody expects to say yes; they include Richard Gere, Ed Harris and Hugh Grant.
