Friday Night Lights, FNL, Aimee Teegarden, Zach Gilford


Clear eyes, full hearts...Dawson Leery?

Just wait until you hear Zach Gilford's story about being mistaken for James Van Der Beek. As if he wasn't adorable enough, Gilford shared the tale with our own Kristin Dos Santos during Fox's TCA Star Walk, and also talked about that one time he was on one of the most perfect shows on television (Friday Night Lights, duh!), and we fell in love with him more.

"I was in Chicago last night and someone was walking by and was like, 'You were in Varsity Blues!'" Gilford laughs. "I was like, 'You think I'm Dawson?'"

While we love both men very much, it's kind of a crime to confuse Varsity Blues and Friday Night Lights. And speaking of FNL, let's catch up with Matt and Julie (Aimee Teegarden)!

"We're very happy, me and Julie, and my art is taking off," Gilford predicts. "It's just taking off. And she is finishing school now. I think she's a senior at this point. That sounds about right. Yeah, I'm one year out of college theoretically."

And what of Zach's real-life fiancé, Kiele Sanchez?

"Wedding planning is going awesome, he tells us. "We set a date. We found a magical, magical place to get married and I'm excited. It is going to be cool."

Just invite Taylor Kitsch. And then invite us. And then serve lots of wine. Thanks!
