There's something Friday Night Lights' Matt Saracen wants. Bad. To get it, he'll have to go through the woman who brought him into the world.
And playing the long-estranged mom of Matt (Zach Gilford) will be Kim Dickens, a.k.a. Deadwood's Joanie Stubbs, TV Guide reveals.
To date, not much has been revealed about Matt's never-seen mom.
He's led folks to believe she was far removed from his world, the truth is that she's been much closer — geographically — than thought.
That alone speaks volumes about the tension between the two when Matt Saracen finally comes knocking on her door - with a purpose.
Dickens — who will also be familiar to Lost fans from her role as Sawyer's "long con," Cassidy Phillips — first appears as Shelby Saracen in episode two of Season 3, which kicks off October 1 on DirecTV.
