Connie Britton Says “I Love The Idea” Of FNL ReunionBy: Jennifer Curra - October 9, 2013
Connie Britton, star of Nashville, American Horror Story, and Friday Night Lights has been through several circuits lately where the main question seems to be whether or not the cast of Friday Night Lights will reunite for a feature film.
Connie recently made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live where she spoke with Andy Cohen about a potential cinematic reunion for Friday Night Lights.
“You know, there’s been a lot of talk about a lot of things. And some people are really excited about it, and other people aren’t. I love the idea. I think it would be a great idea. But my former husband, Coach Eric Taylor…,” Connie said.
Andy Cohen prodded, “He thinks you did it already?”
However, Connie, or as Friday Night Lights fans know her Tami Taylor, was quick to offer a balanced reason for her former costar’s reluctance to jump into the project.
“Well, and he has a point, and we would only do it if it was going to be a great movie. That’s the thing,” Connie explained.
Connie has been quizzed about an anticipated continuation for the hit many times before.
In the following video from Live with Kelly & Michael Connie talks about her audition for Jerry Maguire, which was ultimately given to Renée Zellweger as well as the potential for the Friday Night Lights reunion.
According to E! Connie and Kyle Chandler have not exactly been on the same page concerning the potential for the project.
“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. I think it’s gonna be up to more than just us, actually. But we’ll see. It’ll be fun, I think,” Connie Britton said.
