Taylor Kitsch’s Tim Riggins and a mostly new crew return to NBC in Friday Night Lights, if you didn’t catch the season first on DirectTV. The latest season brings in a lot of new characters and takes a little getting used to. Kitsch makes it all worth while, though.
Don’t be surprised if new TV hottie Alan Ritchson looks familiar. He started off his career behind the camera as a model for Abercrombie and Fitch as well as Internatinal Jock. He moved on to TV as a contestant on America Idol but didn’t make it past the top 87. He did land some guest spot roles on shows like Smallville and as a dead guy on CSI: Miami. His big break has come with Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State, though, where he plays college freshman Thad Castle.
