Adrianne Palicki Returning to TV

Friday Night Lights' Adrianne Palicki will be on the upcoming NBC comedy About a Boy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show is based on the movie (and book) of the same name, and while that sounds like a vaguely not-great idea, remember that executive producer Jason Katims made that model work on both FNL and Parenthood. Keep the faith! David Walton takes on the Hugh Grant role, and Palicki will play one of his love interests on a seven-episode arc. What does everyone think Tyra Collette is up to now? I hope she graduated from college and is having a great life.
