Friday Night Lights, Connie Britton, Kyle Chandler


This is so Mr. and Mrs. Coach. Always disagreeing!

When we asked Connie Britton, she of perfect-hair and flawless personality, about the chances of a Friday Night Lights movie, she revealed that she and her onscreen husband Kyle Chandler are not on the same page when it comes to continuing the Dillon saga.

"When they asked the question at the [Austin Television Festival] panel I kind of looked over at Kyle, because I feel like he and I are sort of on different sides of the fence with the movie idea," she told us at the Fragrance Foundation Awards. "I think it's gonna be up to more than just us, actually. But we'll see. It'll be fun, I think."

Oh, Connie. You are so humble. There cannot be a Friday Night Lights film without Eric and Tami. Period.

But at least we got a preview of what a reunion movie would be like when Chandler surprised fans at the Austin Television Festival and showed up for a panel honoring the departed NBC series. Needless to say, the crowd went wild.

"It was just a beautiful reunion. We have such a love for that show," Britton gushed.
