NBC's Friday Night all right for Chandler

Kyle Chandler (Early Edition) will play the lead in NBC's drama pilot Friday Night Lights, based on the 2004 movie.

Peter Berg's feature revolved around the straight-arrow coach of a small-town Texas high school football team. Chandler will play the coach, named Eric Long. In the film, Coach Gary Gaines was played by Billy Bob Thornton.

Early Edition featured Chandler as Chicago stockbroker Gary Hobson. After his wife left him, Hobson began receiving copies of the next-day's newspaper, delivered by a mysterious yellow cat. Upon reading the "early edition" of the newspaper, Hobson had one day to save lives and stop disasters from occurring. The show lasted four seasons on CBS.

Chandler most recently appeared in King Kong.

I am looking forward to seeing this and knowing as we speak, Kyle is in the process of making the new series.
This time I won't have to be taken by surprise when it comes on. But I will be very glad!
