Amy Schumer's Friday Night Lights Spoof: Watch Josh Charles Play Coach

The Friday Night Lights movie may be a no go, but Inside Amy Schumer on Tuesday delivered the next best thing: a brilliant parody, co-starring The Good Wife‘s Josh Charles as Coach Taylor Thompson.

What begins as a simple, yet spot-on, re-imagining of the cult classic drama — extra points to Amy Schumer for nailing that iconic Tami Taylor dance — quickly transitions into a surprisingly poignant, but still super ridiculous, PSA about rape and football.

To say any more would be giving away all the goods, so grab a glass — a really, really big one — and hit PLAY on the video above. Then drop a comment: Don’t you kind of want Football Town Nights to be a real thing?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    This was the best part of a flawless premier. Loved every single bit. Going in, I thought that rap music video would be the best part of the episode and it turns out it was the worst which is saying something.

    I find Amy Schumer utterly hilarious and I’ve just finished binge watching all 76 episodes of Friday Night Lights on Netflix so I do appreciate the timing here. P.S. Yeah, I do want an FNL movie now !

    Maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t enjoy that at all. I’m a big FNL fan and I didn’t find it particularly funny or clever. Not to mention, FNL has been off the air for a while, so that spoof is pretty random.

    Love her. Anyone see her on the red carpet with Kanye and Kim? Hilarious.

    I couldn’t stop laughing, last night, when i watched it. She’s hilarious and now I’m going to go marathon all previous seasons.
