Friday Night Lights Notes: Kim Dickens Back, Janine Turner Uncertain
Friday Night Lights moles say that Dickens will be back for at least some of Zach Gilford’s final seven episodes on Friday Night Lights' fourth season this fall/winter.
She's said to be appearing on at least two episodes. She was certainly a terrific part of the third season, and we can't wait to see what Kim has in store for us next.
Kim Dickens will reprise her role as Matt's mom on Friday Night Lights.
Meanwhile, Janine Turner is not being used as a cast member in the fourth season of Friday Night Lights. Turner was introduced last season as Katie McCoy, but “so far we don’t have her in any stories,” executive producer Jason Katims says.
But the actors who play Katie’s husband Joe (D.W. Moffett) and quarterback son J.D. (Jeremy Sumpter) will play heavily in the new season: “Joe has basically replaced Buddy Garrity as the presence at West Dillon High,” says Katims.
In addition, the show-runner says: “There will also be huge tension between Joe and Tami Taylor (Connie Britton) over a new player named Luke (Lipstick Jungle’s Matt Lauria).”
