fnl_season3castClear eyes, full hearts

Texas forever. Although acclaimed series "Friday Night Lights" ended in 2011 with the Taylors moving to Philadelphia, exec producer Peter Berg admitted to toying with the idea of a "Friday Night Lights" movie before telling Collider, "I've come to believe it's probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it's gonna happen."

Meanwhile, nearly the entire cast and crew of the show have gone on to find success off the gridiron. Here's how to catch up with the crew from Dillon.

Kyle Chandler

After supporting turns in "Super 8," "Argo," "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Spectacular Now" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," our beloved Coach Taylor AKA Kyle Chandler will return to TV… sorta. After winning the Emmy for the last season of FNL, Chandler received a ton of pilot offers. He has signed on to star in Netflix's 13-episode psychological thriller from "Damages" creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler.

Connie Britton

Connie Britton was quick to pick a project after FNL, starring in the inaugural season of Ryan Murphy's "American Horror Story." She then segued to playing country music star Rayna Jaymes in ABC's "Nashville." Still trending on Twitter: Connie Britton's hair.

Michael B. Jordan

It's been a breakout year for FNL star QB Vince Howard. Michael B. Jordan's string of hits include "Chronicle," "That Awkward Moment" and of course, critical acclaim for his portrayal of Oscar Grant in "Fruitvale Station." He's also set to team with Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell in the reboot of "The Fantastic Four."

Taylor Kitsch

Tim Riggins may not have been much of an achiever, but Taylor Kitsch was probably tabbed to be Most Likely to Succeed among the young stars of FNL. He's had more spectacular misses ("John Carter," "Battleship") than hits ("Lone Survivor," "Savages"), but the future is bright for our favorite bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold. He will next star in Ryan Murphy's HBO production of "The Normal Heart."

Jesse Plemons

Lance, er, Landry has kept busy post-Lights with an arc on awards favorite "Breaking Bad" and revived his role (and his band Crucifictorius) in a buzzed-about crossover webisode of "Parenthood." Plemons' next project is Stephen Frears' Lance Armstrong biopic. Although his role hasn't been confirmed, he bears a striking resemblance to Armstrong's teammate Floyd Landis. Plemons is also rumored to be in the running to play a lead in J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars" pic.

Zach Gilford

Zach Gilford went from sweet artist-cum-quarterback Matt Saracen to playing doctors in two TV series since canceled, ABC's "Off the Map" and Fox's "The Mob Doctor." He stars in the horror film "Devil's Due" playing in theaters now and will star in "The Purge: Anarchy" releasing this summer.

Aimee Teegarden

Julie Taylor may have moved to Chicago with QB7, but Aimee Teegarden is ensconced in another teenage love story in CW's mid-season show "Star-Crossed," which also stars FNL alum Grey Damon.

Minka Kelly

Lyla Garrity left Dillon for Vanderbilt before the series ended, but Minka Kelly continued to work with Jason Katims with an arc on "Parenthood" as an Asperger's aide. She also starred in ABC's canceled "Charlie's Angels" reboot and played Jackie Kennedy in "Lee Daniels' The Butler." Kelly now stars in Fox's "Almost Human."
