Minka Kelly Still Likely Leaving Friday Night Lights

by at . Comments

Now that Shonda Rhimes' political pilot, The Body Politic, has not been picked up by the CW (The Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place and The Beautiful Life won spots instead), does that mean Minka Kelly, is still leaving the current show she stars on, Friday Night Lights?

Unfortunately yes.

According to reports, Lyla Garrity is not returning to Dylan, Texas, as was the plan all along.

Friday Night Lights thrives on its realism, and that means folks leaving town, as we saw with the exits of full-time cast members Gaius Charles and Scott Porter.

Minka told E!, "I actually will probably be moving on. I think it would make more sense story-wise that I graduate and move on to college. I think I'll be moving away."

Here's hoping some lucky show lands the lovely Minka Kelly.

Luckily for fans of One Tree Hill, another star of the ill-fated Body Politic, Brian Austin Green, is rumored to be joining that show's cast as a full-time series regular.

If he can get over his case of cold feet, that is.

two things to be duly noted: 1) "body politic" wasn't created by shonda rimes. she has nothing to do with it. 2) it's D-I-L-L-O-N, texas, not Dylan.

Friday Night Lights Quotes

Please don't sleep with my sister Tim, that's like incest.


We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.
