Brian sets up cameras around his friend’s cabin with hopes of recording Bigfoot in action, but he probably doesn’t expect those same lenses to capture his friends’ potential final moments.

The 33-year-old actor, most famous for his role as Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights, also had a reunion with his Fnl co-star -- and best TV mom ever -- Connie Britton aka Tami Taylor at last night's event. And of course, the Nashville star's perfect locks were on point -- you win this hair reunion, Connie!
Taylor finally confirmed his highly coveted new True Detective role in October after months of casting rumors.
"I'm really excited," he told AdWeek. "I've just been prepping. It's been almost a full year since I've been on camera, so I'm itching »
But where's Coach Taylor? Former Friday Night Lights costars Connie Britton and Taylor Kitsch brought back Dillon, Tex. memories when they reunited at the African Children's Choir Changemakers Gala in NYC on Thursday, Nov. 20. The Nashville actress, 47, glowed in a long-sleeve black sweater dress and a gold "Y" necklace, perhaps a nod to her 2-year-old son Yoby. Kitsch, 33, briefly joined Britton on the red carpet for photos in a suit and skinny tie. Once inside the event, the stars got silly in a selfie with [...] »
Patrick Radden Keefe's New Yorker story "The Hunt for El Chapo" is a terrifying, bizarre, and occasionally funny look at modern drug trafficking. Delving into the lavish world of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, Keefe finds a quirky character pulling strings for a murderous bunch who love their Instagram. The DEA manhunt for Loera, that ended this past February, lasted a decade. The best kingpins can live a life of luxury and still avert paramilitary. Loera was the best of the best. Those are the types that get movies made about their lives. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Universal has picked up the rights to "El Chapo," for its "Lone Survivor" director Peter Berg to helm. After that gritty military war film earned more than franchise wannabe "Battleship," the studio is in a position to let Berg do whatever the heck he wants. He’ll »

Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino and stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel will be on hand for a panel honoring the 15th anniversary of the show’s debut. "So, after years of peace and quiet, these lunatics have chosen to get the chattiest chicks in the world back under one roof? Really? Okay. You asked for it," Palladino said in a statement. "Gilmore was the highlight of my ridiculous life. I can't wait to sit with »

It's a widely-known and accepted fact that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a million times more epic and intense this season than its first. And it's all thanks to Adrianne Palicki. Sure, the story of ABC's Marvel series benefitted from Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier's huge plot twist, when S.H.I.E.L.D. was destroyed at its core from Hydra corruption, but we can't get enough of Friday Night Lights veteran Palicki as the kick-butt agent Mockingbird, aka Bobbi Morse. Seriously, we're about as obsessed with her as Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) is...and that's really saying something! Palicki enjoys playing the fierce new agent as much as we are watching her on screen. "I love »
ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Tuesdays at 9/8c) dialed it up to 11 with the addition of Barbara “Bobbi” Morse, played by Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki. The elite undercover operative (code name: Mockingbird) joined the team just in time, as all hands are needed on deck as Coulson & Co. labor to temper the Hydra threat, as well as crack that confounding alien code.
Palicki spoke with TVLine about tackling the Marvel-ous role, Bobbi’s “complicated” past with Lance Hunter (and possible history with an archer Avenger) and her recent three-pronged attack on screens big and small.

Netflix wasn’t about to leave its fans in the dark with its newest original series Bloodline. The streaming video-on-demand service just released six new images from the upcoming show. Bloodline tells the story of the Florida Keys-based Rayburn siblings. The four are tight-knit, but when their oldest brother and black sheep of the family comes home, he “exposes the emotional demons that lie at the core of the family, threatening to tear them apart.” Netflix announced the show in October, and plans to debut the series on its platform in March 2015. Bloodline is executive produced by Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler, and Daniel Zelman, the three powers behind FX’s popular show Damages. Netflix’s upcoming series boasts an impressive roster of acting talent, including Kyle Chandler (of Friday Night Lights fame), Ben Mendelsohn ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Linda Cardellini ("Mad Men"), Sam Shepard ("The Right Stuff"), Sissy Spacek »

Looks like Kyle Chandler is trading in his coach’s hat and whistle for a badge and a gun. Photos from the Friday Night Lights star’s upcoming new Netflix drama Bloodline reveal that Chandler will in fact be playing a sheriff’s deputy in the series. From everything we know about the show, this will be a much darker role for Chandler than we’ve seen from him in recent years. Although he’s playing a cop here, that doesn’t mean that he might not be a dirty one, and since the trailer and logline for Bloodline seem to indicate that the show’s characters are hiding a dark (and potentially deadly) secret, Chandler’s character, named John Rayburn, may be instrumental in covering that secret up. Additionally, while most of the stills released by Netflix are pretty calm scenes, which we can’t take too much away from, »

There’s a new sheriff in town.
Created and exec-produced by Damages vets Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler, the series is set in the Florida Keys and centers on a close-knit family of four adult siblings (Chandler, Norbert Leo Butz, Ben Mendelsohn and Linda Cardellini) whose secrets and scars are revealed when their black sheep brother (Mendelsohn) returns home. Sam Shepard and Sissy Spacek play the parents. »

Hill will star as the mother of a young man, played by Chris Zylka (The Leftovers), who is newly released from prison and falls for the troubled girl next door, played by Riley Keough, whose previous films include Magic Mike and Runaways. Keough is the daughter of singer Lisa Marie Presley and granddaughter of Elvis Presley. »
While I wasn't the biggest fan of "Lone Survivor," I was impressed with the way they managed to turn it into a genuine hit. It's a pretty stark and brutal story, but Mark Wahlberg worked overtime to help sell the movie, and it's obvious that it came from a place of real passion for him. Peter Berg has such a strange filmography at this point that I've basically given up trying to guess what he'll do next. I always walk in hoping for him to put it all together as well as he does in films like "Friday Night Lights" or "The Rundown," because I think he's got the chops. I like that he's done some of everything at this point. Looking at how he shoots action in "Hancock," for example, or even in "Lone Survivor," he's got a sense for how to build a sequence. I just think he's »

Exclusive: Ahead of her stop at the 48th Annual Country Music Awards tonight in Nashville, country music superstar Faith Hill has completed filming on indie crime drama Dixieland. This marks the “Breathe” singer’s second film after 2004’s Stepford Wives, in which she made her big screen debut opposite Nicole Kidman.
The Leftovers‘ Chris Zylka stars in the Mississippi-set Dixieland as a young man, newly released from prison, who falls for the troubled girl next door and takes a big risk to give them a shot at a better life. Hill plays the mother he moves back home with, starring alongside Riley Keough, the Magic Mike and Runaways actress whose grandfather was the legendary Elvis Presley. Breaking Bad‘s Rj Mitte, Spencer Lofranco (Jamesy Boy), Brad Carter (True Detective), Steve Earle (Treme), and WWE wrestling icon Mick Foley round out the cast.

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.
Seen any good movies lately? We sure hope so, because they're probably going to resurface on TV. By our count, there are currently 27 (yes, 27) film-to-tv adaptations in the works — including “American Gigolo,” ”Big,” “Ghost,” and “The Truman Show,” to name a few. Clearly, movies being retooled for television appears to be the biggest small screen trend. To better understand why, TheWrap turned to a network executive and two showrunners for insight on Hollywood's latest obsession: Jason Katims of “Parenthood,” “About a Boy” and “Friday Night Lights,” and Noah Hawley, who is fresh off of the latest big film-to-tv smash, FX's “Fargo. »
