Looks like Kyle Chandler might be headed away from the gridiron and back into the prehistoric times. According to Entertainment Weekly, the Friday Night Lights star has been offered a big money deal to star in Fox’s upcoming drama Terra Nova. Chandler would play the patriarch in a futuristic family that ends up way, way back in time living with the dinosaurs. Even though the concept sounds a bit hokey, some big names are attached to the show. Steven Spielberg and Peter Chernin are executive producing and Brannon Braga (24, FlashForward) is showrunner. Chandler is currently finishing the fifth season of Friday Night Lights and rumors abound that this will be the critically acclaimed show’s final season.
The Chandler to Terra Nova rumors are disconcerting to this Friday Night Lights fan. The show has always been standing at the edge of the cliff and has barely hung on the last couple of years with the help of DirectTV. Season 4 has finished its run on the satellite’s home station and will premiere May 7th on NBC. Chandler’s attachment to a new show would spell the end for one of the great television works in recent memory.
Currently, Terra Nova is set to begin airing this fall.
