"Maybe Kitsch will make his way back towards the roles that let him be Taylor Kitsch. Consider Riggins: He was an angry lunkhead, sure, but he was memorable for his wisecracks, his confused, goofy faces, and most importantly (cue Explosions in the Sky) his heart. Kitsch’s all-action post-Friday Night Light run left no room for the jokes and smirks that make him likable, or make him different from the thousand other former Diesel models milling around Hollywood. The bang-em-up approach isn’t really catching on anyway, so why not let Taylor Kitsch lighten up a little? Or take a page from the Channing Tatum playbook and put him in the Magic Mike musical. We’re good with either strategy. We just want the Riggins light to shine again.”
this is a recipe for a “tim riggins brownie”. do with that what you will.
"your long hair kind of reminds me of jesus." note to self that pick up line on rigs does not work.
OMG RIGGINS DRINKING A BEER.
merry christmas indeed.
Put something in your head that just drives you crazy, that just bugs you and then make that be the ball, and you just slam on it, you know what I mean?
part of my thursday afternoon was spent in barnes in noble, drinking a java chip frap, listening to the chris brown station on pandora (stop judging me), and reading the friday night lights companion, a book of essays dissecting one of the best shows ever (seriously, i can feel your judgement through the internetz).
throughout the book, there’s a recurring section called “why we love” and goes on to describe various reasons why we love each of the main characters from FNL with examples from the show. this is what it said for tim riggins. absolutely accurate.
it actually does go on to give legit reasons why he’s so great (loyal to his family, ability to overcome adversity, being the true definition of a good guy, etc. etc.), but let’s be honest, we all know that if you even mutter the words ‘tim riggins’, the first thought in your head won’t be his top notch stint as a radio sports talk show host. it will always be this:
Tim: I’m hoping we get something over that fire tonight. So keep the eyes peeled, lead feet.
Matt: What kind of things do you think we’re gonna get?
Tim: White tail, boar [interrupted by Matt shooting] 7, stop!
Tim: What was it?
Matt: Well, I.. I don’t.. I don’t know.
Tim: What do you mean you don’t know!? The wind?!
Matt: Well,I thought I saw something, but I think it mighta been wind.
Tim: So you shoot? Give me that. [grabs his gun]
Tim: No gun. No gun!
Matt: Really? C’mon, lemme have my gun back.
Tami: What’s going on? [walks to window] Oh, come on!
tim’s stay at the taylor home might be some of my favorite scenes ever. i mean who can blame them for staring??!
