Friday Night Lights' Kyle Chandler Resurrects Coach Taylor on the Big Screen — Watch LOL Video

This may be the closest thing we’ll get to a Friday Night Lights movie — and we’ll take it.

Kyle Chandler has brought back Coach Taylor for Alamo Drafthouse’s new no-talking-during-the-movie PSA that includes the phrase, “Clear eyes, full hearts… turn your g-ddamn cell phones off!”

In the “inspirational message” — the type of which airs before feature films at the Austin, Texas-based chain’s movie theaters — Coach delivers one of his signature team pep talks only to be interrupted by members of the audience chatting and mobile phones ringing.

The spot ends with a warning for those who dare to ruin one of Coach Taylor’s speeches. (Ironically, it was Chandler’s reluctance to reprise his role as Coach Taylor that killed the FNL movie.)

Fans of the high school football drama will appreciate other little touches, like the spot on the wall the players tap as they leave the locker room and the soundtrack, written and performed by FNL house band Explosions in the Sky.

Silence your electronic devices, press PLAY on the video above, and make Coach T proud!

    I’d love it if they actually would punt people out of the theatre!

      ah,ah, I see what you did there.

    • TheDuck says:

      The Alamo Drafthouse actually does kick people who use their phone during the movie out of the theater, If you want a laugh, find the trailer they did with the voice mail message someone they kicked out left them.

    Love this. I just started watching FNL this summer and already know I’m going to miss coach Taylor when I finish the last episode.

    I sort of started to forget how much I loved this show and that one little scene brought it all back.

    Even though many of my fellow actors have moved on to great projects, our beloved FNL (Friday Night Lights ) did cancel toooo soon. 😢

    Omg i miss coach Taylor!

    FNL is and always will be a classic. Scripted show that seems like reality. I switched to Direct TV so I could watch the show when it was canceled by NBC. It got better. Ty Mr. berg.

  9. Kyle Chandler fans need to watch his new show “Bloodline” on netflix. Very good show!!!
