The new season of Friday Night Lights continues to expand its cast.
The latest addition is former The Practice star Steve Harris, who Michael Ausiello reports has booked a recurring role on the NBC drama.
The two-time Emmy nominee will portray Vernon Merriweather, an ex-football star and the father of East Dillon student Jess.
Friday Night Lights returns to DIRECTV on October 28. It will air on NBC some time in the spring.
