“Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose” most famous lines from the ‘NBC' show ‘Friday Nights Lights.’ Even though you have never seen the show, you would have heard the words. The TV show is based on the 1990 book by Buzz Bissinger and the 2004 movie of the same title. Over ninety percent of fans loved the movie although, this did not reflect in the ratings. The series ran from 2006 till 2011. It followed the members of a fictional high school football team in Dillon, Texas. The list talks about surprising things about the series that we didn't know as fans.
1. Taylor Kitsch Drank Beer For His Audition As Tim Riggins
During a ‘Friday night lights’ reunion, Scott Potter who played Jason Street, the quadriplegic and former quarterback said that Kitsch finished a tallboy after opening it with one hand, then opened another and downed it. Then he said,
“This is Taylor Kitsch, reading for Riggins.” He started the scene by the pool where he said ‘Texas forever’ for the first time.
2. Kyle Chandler And Connie Britton drove From Los Angeles To Austin
The duo played coach Taylor and his wife; guidance counselor turned principal, Tami Taylor. They decided that a road trip together would help their on-screen romance. The idea scared the creator of the show, Peter Berg. He told Garland that,
“Connie and Kylie developed a very flirtatious, precocious relationship right off the bat. And Kyle, of course, is married. I was convinced they would have some torrid affair by the time they reached Sante Fe and Kyle's marriage would be over by the time they got to Austin.”
