"Friday Night Lights" Coach Taylor resurrected on big screen

If you're an FNL fan then you may want to head to an Alamo Drafthouse and catch Kyle Chandler portraying Coach Eric Taylor one more time.

Chandler brought back the character for one of the Drafthouse's new no talking during the movie PSAs.

The PSA uses Coach Taylor giving one of his iconic inspirational speeches as the starting point and reveals that he's giving the speech to a bunch of people using their phones. It reminds people that "You Talk and Text. You Ruin Coach's Speech."

While never a ratings powerhouse, the high school football drama gained a very loyal following. It ran for 5 seasons on NBC and DirecTV's 101 Network (now the Audience Network).

Chandler won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Coach Taylor in 2011.
