Step aside, Coach Taylor – It’s time for Coach Riggins to take the field!
We recently sat down with Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki, and the 33-year-old actress confessed that she’s got the perfect spinoff plan in mind for the beloved NBC football drama.
“I think it would be great to restart the show, but instead of you know, Tami Taylor and Coach Taylor, [Tyra and Tim] are the new Tami and Coach,” she spilled to ET’s Katie Krause during a live Facebook interview last week.
Be still our Panther-loving hearts – that sounds amazing!
Palicki continued, “It’s gonna be a little more crazy because he’s still gonna be Tim Riggins and I’m still gonna be Tyra Collette.” The brunette beauty added that the high school sweethearts would be married by now with “too many kids,” and they both would’ve followed in the career footsteps of the Taylor family.
“I’m a counselor, he’s a football coach, he’s still a little bit of an alcoholic,” she described. “That tension, that dynamic – wouldn’t that be an interesting story?”
So what’s it going to take to make this Dillion dream into a reality? “Call [Friday Night Lights producer] Pete Berg and [tell him], 'Yes, this is what we’re doing!’”
Do you know how many people depend on you to make good decisions? Do you have any idea? Your grandmother, your teammates! You better start making ‘em! You better stop being so damn selfish and stop feeling sorry for yourself!
So many people have warned me about getting into this with you. You know what I tell them? I tell them that they don’t know you like I do. I tell them that you’re a good guy. You are, right? You’re a good guy.
