Julie From Friday Night Lights Is Playing a Lawyer Now and I Can't Handle It

23 September 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: NBC See this precious girl who cares about the happiness of chickens? That's Julie on Friday Night Lights. Aimee Teegarden played her from 2006 to 2011, and though the show has been over for years, it'll live on in our (full) hearts forever. Since Teegarden is, in fact, a professional actress, she has moved on to other roles, the latest of which is a spot on the new ABC show Notorious. The show premiered this week, and here she is in character as Emery Whitehill. Image Source: ABC Our little Julie is all grown up! It makes sense that Teegarden, who is almost 27 years old, is taking on more adult roles, but it still makes me long for the days when Julie was crashing her car into mailboxes so she wouldn't have to go back to school. (College can be hard.) Here's to hoping Matt (Zach Gilford) makes a cameo this season. »

24 Times Coach Taylor Seems Too Good to Be True

17 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Friday Night Lights won over fans for plenty of reasons, but it's safe to say that Coach Taylor (aka Kyle Chandler), in all his "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" glory, is toward the top of the list. For one thing, there's his incredible halftime speeches, which could sometimes make you cry and sometimes make you want to jump up and chase after your dreams. And, yes, for another thing, he's pretty easy on the eyes, too. (Let's get real: hot Tim Riggins moments weren't the only scenes to make fans swoon.) In celebration of Chandler's birthday on Saturday, relive the 24 times Coach Taylor seems almost too good to be true. Related Stories:Which Friday Night Lights Guy Should You Date? »

Peter Berg Q&A: Why The ‘Deepwater Horizon’ Director Is Never Going Back To Superhero Movies – Tiff 2016

13 September 2016 5:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Peter Berg likes stories about regular people — the kind of people who work on oil rigs and and don’t necessarily relate to on-screen smoothies like James Bond — and for the self-professed “second half” of his directing career, including films like “Lone Survivor,” Berg has started focusing on just that. For his latest film, the fact-based “Deepwater Horizon,” Berg turns his attention to the 2010 oil rig disaster on the eponymous Louisiana drilling platform, with thrilling — and often heart-wrenching — results.

The film follows the rig on its last viable day, as the so-called “bad well” starts collapsing after a series of terrible decisions, systematic breakdowns and just plain old pressure slowly render it not only inoperable, but hugely dangerous. Berg’s frequent star Mark Wahlberg stars as electrician Mike Williams, who leads the film alongside Kurt Russell as the rig’s head honcho, Gina Rodriquez as a whipsmart member of the »

Michael Shannon and Taylor Kitsch Starring in ‘Waco’ Miniseries Based on 1993 Siege

31 August 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In February of 1993, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (Atf) initiated a raid of the Branch Davidians ranch in Waco Texas. Led by David Koresh, the Branch Davidians were a subset of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and had operated their organization out of Waco since 1955. The Atf suspected the group of weapons violations and soon the raid quickly escalated into a shootout and a 51 day standoff, culminating in a fire that killed almost 80 of the group’s members on April 19, 1993. Now, Weinstein Television has announced that they are developing an event series based on the harrowing tale with Michael Shannon (“Midnight Special”) and Taylor Kitsch (“Friday Night Lights”), playing lead FBI negotiator Gary Noesener and Koresh respectively.
