Exclusive: 'Friday Night Lights' Drafts Soap Stud


Landry Clarke, meet your competition.

Friday Night Lights has tapped ex-As the World Turns troublemaker Zach Roerig to join the cast as Cash, a local rodeo star who lassoes Adrianne Palicki’s Tyra.

As executive producer Jason Katims teased back in July, Cash will appear just as Tyra’s romance with Landry is cooling off. “Tyra in the past eight months has [realized] that, while she loves Landry, she kind of feels like he’s not really The Guy,” he said. “So it becomes a story about ‘Are they going to be able to be friends? And will Landry be able to accept that?'”

My guess? Hell to the no! (Are the kids still saying that?)

Who’s side are you on? Team Landry or Team Cash? Vote below!

    I am all about Team Landry. I adore that speed metal Christian Rock band member, Math geek who offeres unsolicited and unwanted advice dude. He’s so great! More Landry, Less Cash.

    I’m Team Landry. However, if the break-up of Tyra/Landry makes way for more Matt/Landry bromance screen time (something that was really missing last season), then I’m ok with that.

  • Johnny

    Team Landry! Although I’m excited to see this Cash guy and I’m certain that Tyra will dump him and get back with Landry before the season is over.

    Team Landry, all the way. Jesse Plemons is adorable, and so is Landry Clarke. I thought that Tyra had finally figured out that substance over style and fidelity over flash were the way to go. What really stinks is that due to FNL skipping the 8 months between football seasons, we didn’t get to actually even see them BE a couple.

    Zach Roerig is a terrible actor. Very full of himself too.

  • Robert

    What type of person would choose to not be on Team Landry? Crucifictorious forever!

  • Elvara

    Why are the bad actors getting all the work? Zach Roerig is awful.

    Team Landry all the way!! Please tell me there’s hope for a Tyra/Landry reunion.

    As a fan of Zach, I go for Cash.

    A terrible actor? Have you seen any of his work? Don’t let his reputation as a soap star precede him. Contrary to popular belief there are in fact good actors on daytime, and Zach is certainly among them.

    Zach has grown as an actor, and seems to be a sincere young man. I don’t think he’s full of himself at all.
