Congratulations! Zach is officially off the market, as he married Kiele on Saturday Dec. 29 in Napa Valley!
The couple met in early 2010 while they were costarring in the ABC pilot The Matadors, however, it was never picked up to series.
“She is the most amazing woman in the world,” Zach told Us Weekly of Kiele during the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour in 2012.
In July, Zach revealed to E! News that the couple’s wedding plans were “magical.”
“We set a date,” he said. “We found a magical, magical place to get married and I’m excited. It is going to be cool.”
This is Zach’s first marriage and the second for Kiele, who is divorced from writer and film director Zach Helm.
Zach is best known for playing quarterback Matt Saracen on NBC’s Friday Night Lights. »

I didn't even realize that this was already out in theaters, although in a very limited release, playing on just one screen in the entire country. It looks like it may be gone from theaters. But don't fret, if you were interested in seeing it, because it'll be released on home video in early February. So you don't have very long to wait. Cinedigm and New Video acquired domestic (USA) distribution rights to In Our Nature, which premiered this year at the SXSW Film Festival, earlier this year. Gabrielle Union co-stars in this indie dramedy, alongside Jena Malone, Zach Gilford and John Slattery, »

What's the nature of In Our Nature? Smart but rather dull, like a sophisticated person who needs better stories to tell.
I had hoped the producers of Meek's Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy -- two of my favorite quiet little movies -- would deliver another entertaining and keenly observant film with In Our Nature. But while Vincent Savino and Anish Savjani's new film says some compelling things about human relationships, it suffers from a plodding pace and only mildly interesting narrative.
In Our Nature is set entirely in an upstate New York weekend home, where young Brooklynites Seth (Zach Gilford) and Andie (Jena Malone) hope to spend a romantic weekend. Shortly after they arrive, Seth's long-estranged father, Gil (John Slattery), who owns the house, shows up unexpectedly with his much-younger girlfriend, Vicky (Gabrielle Union). Tempers flare immediately, as Seth and Gil blame each other for the scheduling mix-up.

Look for Don's review this afternoon -- among other things, he's says it's "an astute film with much to say about family dynamics." It's about a father and son spending a weekend with their respective partners at a vacation home in upstate New York.
We have two pairs of tickets to give away to see In Our Nature at Regal Arbor 8. You can use these tickets to attend any screening of the movie at the Arbor from Monday 12/17 through Thursday 12/20. Tickets must be redeemed at the box office and seating is subject to availability.
If you can't wait for Monday and want to see the movie this weekend, I recommend going to the 7:30 pm screenings on »

Sometimes you're just in the mood for a low-budget, four-character indie film in which a few flawed but very relatable folks deal with their low-key stresses, concerns, and issues in a way that, at the very least, rings true and, in the best cases, offers a viewer something that feels personal and familiar. The low-key but smoothly accessible In Our Nature is definitely one of those films. First-time writer/director Brian Savelson is interested in little more than presenting a story about a strained relationship between a father and his grown son, and how it begins to heal with some integral help from two very smart women. Seth is a popular musician who brings his longtime girlfriend to the rarely-used family cabin. Their fun is interrupted »
But, when he's not wearing a football uniform – or hospital scrubs, as the case has been on his subsequent television shows, "Off the Map" and this season's "Mob Doctor" – you might just find him in the woods. The 30-year-old actor considers himself an outdoorsman, spending his free time hiking, camping and the like, which worked out perfectly for his latest foray onto the big screen, "In Our Nature."
The movie follows Gilford's Seth and his girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone) as they head to Seth's "cabin" in upstate New York. Little do they know that Seth's somewhat estranged father ("Mad Men"'s John Slattery) and his city mouse girlfriend (Gabrielle Union) have similar plans. Needless to say, significant awkwardness ensues.
Thankfully, Gilford was able to flex some of those outdoor muscles in the film and »

We once thought only in our dreams would Roger Sterling play father to Matt Saracen. But In Our Nature is as close as we'll get for now. The film, which opens today in New York and Austin, stars John Slattery and Zach Gilford as an estranged father and son who, unbeknownst to each other, both head up to the family cabin with their respective girlfriends at the same time. Slattery's character Gil and Vicky (Gabrielle Union) show up as Gilford's Seth and Andie (played by Jena Malone) are about to enjoy some cabin coitus, and that's only the beginning of the awkwardness. We caught up with the guys recently and learned about how they passed the time together in the woods for a month during filming (Union's boyfriend Dwyane Wade visited and lost to Gilford in Words With Friends) and whether we'll ever see the two reunite on Mad Men. »

We've hit an early December lull at multiplexes this weekend as we prepare for the onslaught of big holiday blockbusters that will soon be here. The only major release in theatres this week is the Gerard Butler rom-com Playing for Keeps, although End of Watch is also returning to a significant number of theatres for an awards season run. Does it really have a shot at an Oscar? It seems like a bit of a stretch to me. In select theatres, look for Bill Murray playing Fdr in Hyde Park on Hudson, which has been getting pretty disappointing reviews, along with Lay the Favorite starring Bruce Willis and Deadfall starring Eric Bana. If that's not enough, we've also got a South Korean Twilight rip-off called A Werewolf Boy. What will you be watching this weekend? Playing for Keeps End of Watch (re-release) Lay the Favorite (limited) Hyde Park on Hudson »
If it weren’t for dysfunctional relationships, independent films might never have any stories to tell. “In Our Nature” is the latest in a long line of small-scale films about children who don’t get along with their parents, and the terms both come to in the process of a shared experience that throws them together – in predictably unwitting fashion, of course. But solid performances from the central quartet of actors, including Zack Gilford, Jena Malone, John Slattery and Gabrielle Union elevate Brian Savelson’s debut as a writer and director despite its familiarity as not just a story but almost an entire cinematic subgenre. Gilford (“Friday Night Lights”) and Malone (“Sucker Punch”) play Seth and Andie, a young couple from Brooklyn that drives up in the woods for a getaway in his family’s lake house. Shortly after they arrive, Seth’s dad Gil (Slattery) shows up with his girlfriend Vicky (Union) in tow, »

This weekly column is intended to provide reviews of nearly every new release, including films on VOD (and in certain cases some studio releases). Specifics release dates and locations follow each review. Reviews This Week "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding" "Deadfall" "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas" "Hyde Park on Hudson" "Heleno" "In Our Nature" "Lay the Favorite" "The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez" "Tchoupitoulas" "Waiting for Lightning" *** "Cheerful Weather for the Wedding" So you like "Downton Abbey"? Then "Cheerful Weather For The Wedding" was probably made for you -- especially because, as with the show, Elizabeth McGovern remains the matriarch. But while it's well-acted and nicely shot, it trades the show's fun, soapy »

If you're like us, you love the holiday season, but kinda wish you could spend it in Dillon, Texas, with the Taylor family.
Actually, this year, you almost can. Coach himself, Kyle Chandler, stars in "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty," while Mrs. Coach Connie Britton graces the big screen in "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas." As for the young-uns, you've probably already caught Tyra Collette (Adrianne Palicki) in theaters in "Red Dawn" and might want to make a date to see Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford) in "In Our Nature" this month.
In fact, why wait to get a good look at them? We figured it was time to pay homage to the (incredibly attractive) cast of "Friday Night Lights" as they're about to see their names in lights for real. And, thus, we were inspired to create this gallery of the "Friday Night Lights" gang in movies, past, present and future. »

Forces of Nurture: Savelson’s Debut an Understated Ensemble of Well Tread Angst
For his feature film debut, Brian Savelson has acquired an impressive four person ensemble that examines everything from parent and child relationships, round two families, and even a nod to Chekov with some estate squabbles. There’s a definite sense, that only deepens as In Our Nature reaches its last lap, that this is familiar territory, a quartet of characters constantly undermining or over compensating in their surroundings as they navigate the miasma of the dysfunctional family discourse. While this doesn’t detract from Savelson’s well-written scenario, per se, there are several moments where we get lost in really caring how or why any of these people will ever resolve their personal issues.

Title: In Our Nature Director: Brian Savelson Starring: Zach Gilford (TV’s ‘Friday Night Lights’), Jena Malone (‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’), Gabrielle Union and John Slattery (TV’s ‘Mad Men’) Filming a low-budget, independent film with a first-time feature writer and director can be taunting for many actors, but filmmaker Brian Savelson effortlessly found the perfect cast to create a realistic, emotional, character-driven movie with his new drama, ‘In Our Nature.’ With a talented quartet of well-known actors, including Jena Malone, Gabrielle Union, John Slattery and Zack Gilford, Savelson rightfully forgoed featuring any other characters and set the story in an isolated home to truly focus on the tension and strained [ Read More ]

It's fun when actors from favorite TV shows intermingle in movies. Remember how exciting it was to see both Walter White and Coach Taylor in Argo? In In Our Nature, which comes out this weekend in New York and Austin, Roger Sterling (John Slattery) plays the dad of Matt Saracen (Zach Gilford). (Hopefully this dad's face remains intact.) The film revolves around a wild weekend in which both the estranged father and son bring their respective girlfriends to their vacation home. In this clip, that old dog Sterling shares an expectedly too-flirtatious moment with Saracen's girlfriend (played by Jena Malone) over a marijuana cigarette. A man does a little LSD and now it's Woodstock 24/7. »

In writer/director Brian Savelson’s feature debut, In Our Nature, out in theaters Dec. 7, Slattery plays Gil, the estranged dad of Seth, a bearded hipster played by Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights). When Seth brings his girlfriend, Andie, played by Jena Malone (Pride & Prejudice), to his family’s upstate New York retreat for a romantic getaway weekend, Gil shows up to the house as well — with his new, younger girlfriend Vicky, played by Gabrielle Union. »

A warning to Friday Night Lights fans: the clean shaven Zach Gilford you came to know and love as quarterback of the Dillon Panthers will look just a little bit different when you see him next. The 30-year-old actor, as mild-mannered off-screen as he is on, stars in the upcoming indie In Our Nature as Seth, the quiet, sensitive son of a neglectful father played by Mad Men's John Slattery. The pair coincidentally choose the same weekend to go up to the family cabin, each bringing along their respective girlfriends, making for an uncomfortable weekend. While

As Roger Sterling loses his grip on power, John Slattery continues his ascent on the set of Mad Men. The 50-year-old actor, who has earned four Emmy nominations for his work as the slick ad executive on the AMC drama, will direct two episodes of the show's upcoming sixth season, he told The Hollywood Reporter during an interview about his new movie, In Our Nature. AMC confirmed that he will be directing the episodes. Slattery previously has helmed three episodes of the multiple-Emmy-winning show, including "Signal 30" during its 2012 season.
