Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Apr 30, 2013

'Touchdown Newport' premieres Tuesday Night

Documentary about 1970 Newport Harbor High football team features Kyle Chandler as narrator.

Randy Hamilton, the director of the high school football documentary "Touchdown Newport," hopes the movie becomes popular nationwide after its premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
That desire may sound lofty, but Hamilton has seen the seemingly improbable become reality while working on the film about the Newport Harbor High School 1970 football team over the past three years.

On a whim, the Newport Beach resident reached out to Emmy-award winning actor Kyle Chandler to be the narrator of the documentary. It made sense. Chandler was the quintessential coach, Eric Taylor, in the highly regarded TV show "Friday Night Lights."

Chandler responded that he'd be on board and became the narrator. He's been invited to the screening at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Lido Theatre, but probably won't attend because of acting commitments, Hamilton said.
