Zach Roerig to Join Adrianne Palicki on Friday Night Lights!!

Friday Night Lights just picked IMTA alum Zach Roerig to play IMTA alum Adrianne Palicki's new love interest!!! Zach will play Cash, a local rodeo star who gets involved with Adrianne's character Tyra!! Executive producer Jason Katims told The Hollywood Reporter: "Tyra in the past eight months has [realized] that, while she loves Landry, she kind of feels like he's not really The Guy," he said. "So it becomes a story about 'Are they going to be able to be friends? And will Landry be able to accept that?" We can not wait to see what happens in the third season as Tyra enters her senior year!!!

Adrianne is also featured in the September issue of GQ Magazine!!! This red hot star has been so busy between working on Friday Night Lights. She is in post production on two projects: Women in Trouble, where she portrays Holly Rocket and Legion in which she plays Charlie. Adrianne competed at IMTA in New York City in 2001 where she shared this in an interview with the IMTA Video Crew, she said :"It was amazing. I love IMTA. I'm so sad it's over." She went on to work in both film and television in such projects as 7 Mummies, The Robinsons: Lost in Space, Popstar, Smallville, CSI, North Shore, South Beach and Supernatural. She was named one of the "Girls to Watch of 2008" by FHM Magazine and was in a national Dove soap campaign. To see more on Adrianne in GQ visit their official site.



Zach competed at IMTA Convention in Los Angeles in 2003 where his charm, great looks and huge talent amazed the agents and managers attending. He is in post production on the upcoming film Assassination of a High School President along with Micha Barton and Bruce Willis. He stars as Matt Mullin in this new comedic film.

Hmmm....

Is Zach going to be competing with Landry for Tyra's heart ...

OR ...

Competing with Taylor Kitsch for all the female viewers hearts??! ;)

Wonder if we'll see Cash & Riggs go at it this season? That'd be cool.

Hmmm....
