John Carter star Taylor Kitsch stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman last night and entertained Dave with a story about getting stopped by customs at an airport in the Philippines when his passport had no room left for a stamp. He was informed he was going to be sent back on the next plane to Japan, where he just flew in from, but Kitsch, who had a work visa to film the upcoming Oliver Stone film Savages, told the agent he was an actor — which the man didn’t believe. With the airport’s computers down, and the man not familiar with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Kitsch pulled out his iPhone and played him the John Carter trailer. “He’s like, ‘That’s not you.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ He’s like, ‘You have short hair.’ And I’m like, ‘Mate, I cut it. It grows. It’s me,’” Kitsch says. Luckily, the guy liked the trailer and Kitsch got to stay. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Friday Night Lights (21-30 of 98)
If you’ve been on Twitter in the last week, odds are your feed had multiple people tweeting about the TV shows they were self-marathoning. With repeats filling the current TV schedule, vacation days to burn, and a need for a break from relatives, it seems an ideal time to catch up on shows you missed or revisit ones you loved. Because we forecast this trend to continue through Jan. 2, let’s just get go ahead and get it all out here, folks. Spot Inspection: What TV show are you marathoning?
I know I wasn’t the only one hitting Friday Night Lights last week. (Thank you, Netflix.) After seeing back-to-back Taylor Kitsch trailers for John Carter and Battleship in theaters, I decided I needed to properly mourn the cutting of Kitsch’s hair for the latter. I also needed to come to terms with the fact that the FNL character I most resembled in high school was not a leading lady but Julie’s friend Lois, the one who, after Julie recounts how Kitsch’s Tim Riggins shielded her during a tornado in season 2, asks, “Tim Riggins was, like, holding you? … What does he smell like?”*
*If you follow me on Twitter, you already knew that.
It’s hard to say, “Poor Minka Kelly!” (I mean, come on… seriously!) But, as any avid fan of Friday Night Lights can attest, we tend to keep an eye out for our beloved Dillon natives. (In case you were wondering what all that excessive gawking at Taylor Kitsch was about. Just keepin’ tabs on Timmy Riggins, is all.)
Still, it was hard not to feel a little bad for “poor Minka Kelly” when it was announced today that her new series, ABC’s remake of Charlie’s Angels, has been canceled. And just a few weeks after her split from longtime boyfriend Derek Jeter, no less. But, let’s not feel too sorry for Lyla Garrity for too long (because, seriously, come on). Because I’m pretty sure the Bravermans would still love to have Kelly back as Max’s behavioral aide Gaby over on Parenthood. READ FULL STORY
As any Friday Night Lights fanatic can tell you, Buddy Garrity — despite all his best intentions and unwavering devotion to East Dillon football — can be one seriously annoying fellow. But without uttering a single word, Coach and Tami’s youngest daughter Gracie Bell perfectly got across what it’s like to listen to Buddy yammer on. When the Lions not-so-subtly threw a pep rally to get Coach to stay put (the episode was called, fittingly, “Don’t Go”) and Buddy came over to chat up the Taylor clan again, Miss Gracie Bell (wee actress Madilyn Landry… hey, Landry!) gave a look to kill and earned the honor of our DVR Screengrab of the Day. In the pantheon of annoyed tots, Gracie Bell just schooled Royal Wedding flower girl Grace Van Cutsem on how it’s done, Texas-style.
