    'Friday Night Lights' & 'Super 8' Star Kyle Chandler Joins Ben Affleck's 'Argo'

    Kyle Chandler is one of those actors who is a journeyman, logging time on a number of television shows -- "Homefront" and "Early Edition" among them -- and appearing in small roles in a number of films before finally landing what would be his star-making turn in "Friday Night Lights." The critically acclaimed show struggled for survival throughout its five seasons, but it was a launchpad for folks like Taylor Kitsch, Adrianne Palicki and Minka Kelly and for Chandler as well, it put him firmly on the radar thanks to his turn as Eric Taylor.

    Bryan Cranston Headed To Ben Affleck's 'Argo'

    While starring in a hit television sitcom provides a lucrative steady income (thank you syndication) as well as regular gig which for actors is a dream come true, the downside is that the lengthy schedule in which you can branch out to do plays or movies is tremendously small. And while Bryan Cranston doesn't regret the six season and 151 episodes he churned out on "Malcolm In The Middle" he used his time following the show like a man who's got about one hour left to live. He lined up "Breaking Bad," the hit and critically acclaimed AMC show that opened even more doors for the actor who hit the big screen earlier this year in "The Lincoln Law...
