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.
