Peter Berg, creator of the Austin-shot TV series Friday Night Lights says I know Coach Taylor, Coach Taylor is a friend of mine. You, Mitt Romney, are no Coach Taylor.
Berg was behind both the Friday Night Lights film and TV show, but they are both based on Buzz Bissinger's book of the same name. Bissinger, who has long bashed Romney, now suddenly has come out in support of him. He's also shown himself to be a bit of a crank, if not a total nut. Bissinger and Berg are cousins, making it even more interesting.
Now word from actor Kyle Chandler, who is wisely keeping out of the fray.
