After being discovered by an ABC scout during a talent search, Emmy-winning actor Kyle Chandler went on to capture the attention of audiences as Jeff Metcalf, the wannabe baseball player pining after his brother's fiancée on the 1940s-era drama series, "Homefront" (ABC, 1991-93). Following his Broadway debut in "Picnic" (1994) and a small role in "Mulholland Falls" (1996), Chandler followed up with yet another endearing performance on the offbeat fantasy drama series, "Early Edition" (CBS, 1996-2001). The versatile utility player would go on to portray a wide variety of roles in films and on television, ranging from a co-starring role opposite Joan Cusack on the short-lived sitcom "What About Joan?" (ABC, 2001-02), to Peter Jackson's epic big screen remake of "King Kong" (2005). But it was his supporting turn as a morally conflicted high school football coach constantly forced to choose between winning games and doing what is right on the gritty drama series "Friday Night Lights" (NBC/DirecTV, 2006-2011) that put him on the map. Despite critical praise and a loyal audience, the series struggled in the ratings and courted cancellation on several occasions. Regardless of the series' ups and downs, Chandler enjoyed success and recognition that endeared him to a new generation of fans and set him up for a promising film career.
