Monday, October 27, 2008 Posted By Chris Littmann 9:30 AM
Like The White Shadow long ago, and Sports Night a decade ago, Friday Night Lights is one of those shows that takes sports as the spine of a series and makes for a really compelling watch.
On Friday, I had a chance to chat with Lights star Taylor Kitsch, who plays Dillon Panther Tim Riggins. Read on to find out about his passion for hockey, his role on the show and its future.
Littmann: Thanks for taking a break to answer some questions. Before we get to the show, let’s talk about your personal favorite sport: hockey. This has to be a great time of the year for you with the NHL season under way again. Are you catching a lot of the early-season action? With no team in the area, what do you do to keep up?
Kitsch: Yeah, I think I’m the only one in Austin with the hockey package. If I do miss the games, because I get home at like 1, 2 in the morning, I’ll just go over on TSN and what not to watch the highlights.
