Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights


Hollywood better start brainstorming a plot because Connie Britton is down for a Friday Night Lights reunion.

Britton, who now plays the lead on Nashville, opened up to Vulture about her role as Tami Taylor on the hit football show and admitted that she misses it despite having found success again on her country music show. And what will certainly come as amazing news to FNL fans is that when she was asked if she would ever want to do a Friday Night Lights movie or reunion she said she would absolutely be part of it, but there's a catch.

"I would, I just would. Listen, I love that world. I love those characters. I love those actors. I so understand the argument that it's already done and we ended it perfectly. I get all that," she explained.

"Yet I feel like if [director] Pete [Berg] wanted to do it, that would mean that he had an idea that was good enough and worth doing. I don't believe that he does, which is why I think it's kind of another point. But if that was the case and he had an idea and it was worth doing, I would be onboard 100 percent."

That's why Hollywood needs to get cracking on ideas! Sadly, however, director Berg already said a movie is a no-go. "There's not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn't," he told Collider in 2013. "I've come to believe it's probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it's gonna happen."

Britton also expressed to E! News that year that she would definitely want to participate but admitted that her TV husband, Kyle Chandler, wasn't as enthusiastic about the idea. "I feel like he and I are sort of on different sides of the fence with the movie idea," she. "We'll see."

It looks like Chandler is getting his wish.
