Your parents, your grandparents, your cousin, your baby brother, your barista, your dentist, your dog—they all make the same gleeful expression when the show gets mentioned. There is a fanaticism about the show that is rare even by Beloved Cult TV standards. But the duo—who both talk about the show in the reverent, joyous way that you or your friends might talk about your favorite teacher in high school—both said, to awkwardly slide a football metaphor in here, that they believe the clock has run out. I asked both where they think their characters would be now, five years since we left them, after the series finale in 2011. I think he’d have, hopefully, a simple life.” And would he be with Tyra, his character’s sometimes love interest (played by Adrianne Palicki)? It’d be hilarious to have little Riggins-and-Tyra kids. Kelly said that her character probably ended up staying in Nashville after attending Vanderbilt University, which is how we left Lyla.
“Oh my God, it’s a show, I can barely even talk about it,” they’ll say. It’s been 10 years since the series premiered, in 2006, and select members from the cast—Minka Kelly (Lyla Garrity), Taylor Kitsch (Tim Riggins), Aimee Teegarden (Julie Taylor), and Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen)—convened in Chicago over the weekend to mark the occasion. five years, four years.” (Yes, this was disappointing for us to learn, as well, as we always imagined the cast had some super-active group text going for years, and gathered for a monthly margaritas-and-grilling party at Kyle Chandler’s house. “I’ll never play Riggins again,” Kitsch said, flatly. I don’t see any reason to relive it; leave the memories where they’re at . Kitsch did not hesitate: “Obviously, [Riggins would] have an ice-cold beer in his hand.” When pressed further about his character, who was last seen having acquired a new piece of property, Kitsch said, “I see him still in that property, you know? God, they would be great.”Kelly said she hopes to find future roles that make clear she is not Lyla in real life: “I couldn’t be more different from Lyla.
Or they’ll just squeal a character’s name (“Riggins! They did not, sadly, all drive pickup trucks to some abandoned field, drinking beer cans and staring at the horizon, all the while appearing American Eagle–catalogue gorgeous. Some solace: Kitsch apparently refers to Chandler as “Chan.”)Kelly, on the other hand, whom I spoke to on the morning of the race, said it doesn’t feel to her that it’s been a decade since the show premiered (“The only real difference that I can feel is that Aimee Teegarden [who was 16 when the show started] is .
No, the group came together—in an effort facilitated by Marriott Rewards—to compete in a grueling Spartan Race, which required advance training involving spear-throwing, rope-climbing, monkey-bar-conquering, and other components.
The romance was released in 2004, and the pair proceeded to date from 2005 to 2007, with a brief reunion in 2008.
is one of those television shows that all kinds of people in your life—even the ones who don’t keep up with “cool” TV—seem to be obsessed with. It’s not hard to hear about what’s going on with any of them.” would seem a slam-dunk campaign. ” Kelly has a similar perspective: “I think some things are better left [with people] wanting more.”, it does not mean they have left their characters, spiritually, behind. I really look forward to opportunities of showing how different I am from her, how much stronger I am than her,” she said, citing Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, and Reed Morano as directors she would love to work with.
When I asked if she thinks Riggins and Lyla—who dated Tim on and off—are over for good, she suggested that “maybe [Riggins] is with Tyra now.” But after I told her that I always liked Riggins and Lyla as a pair, she reconsidered. I don’t know, maybe they do end up back together, maybe he gets his shit together, and they work things out.
There's no balance right now — it's nothing but work. Your costars in include Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church, and Bryan Cranston. But Willem's married, and so is Cranston, so I don't really know if they'd want to be out in the shit.
There's got to be a compromise there, or it just isn't going to work. features you shirtless for basically two hours straight. What's the one thing I can do to have better abs without really having to work very hard? I don't have it quite that bad, but my boyfriend just got a job in another state, and I need to stay put because I'm still in school. How important are shared interests in a relationship? I mean, is it really going to kill the relationship that you don't like the music she likes? You're a certified nutritionist and personal trainer. You're putting them all into one category, and that's just unfair. It seems silly, but it actually causes a surprising amount of bickering. That's tough, because I usually put 100% junk food into my body. A., and they're different in Montreal than they are in Vancouver, so it's tough to say. Oh man, I don't really have a life at the moment, to be honest with you. I had a friend who called that being "disarmingly charming." Or armingly. They've all got very dry senses of humor, which are the best in my opinion. Will you allow our web designer, Ellie, to touch them? So right now that's the last thing on my mind I can really put energy into. If they formed a crusty-old-tough-guys club and went out to meet women, who'd do the best?
