Who killed Osama Bin Laden? Would you believe it was Coach Taylor? You probably would (there's nothing Coach can't do!), and that's why Kathryn Bigelow had the good sense to cast Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler in her next movie, a currently untitled action drama about the Navy Seal Team Six mission to take out the Al Qaeda leader. He joins a promising group of actors that includes Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt, and Edgar Ramirez, and if he needs to give all of them an inspiring pep talk before the mission (or even just before everyone sits down for the table read), we would be totally fine with that.
