The Hollywood Reporter A bartender fills our glasses with a “nice, heavy cab,” [Kyle] Chandler’s request, as we talk at length about his role as Coach Taylor on Friday Night Lights — with which he is so closely associated, you find yourself wondering where Taylor ends and Chandler begins. …

The irony, of course, is that Chandler had reservations about taking the Coach Taylor role. “Billy Bob [Thornton] played the original coach [in the 2004 movie], and I thought, ‘I’m not old enough, I don’t have that,’ ” he says. Plus, he wasn’t exactly a sports buff, much less an athlete. “He’s not that guy who’s going to sit down on Sunday and watch eight hours of football,” says Taylor Kitsch (who played FNL’s Tim Riggins), with whom he bonded during long motorcycle rides. Chandler found inspiration in a biography of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick but acknowledges: “I couldn’t coach my way out of a paper bag.”

If you needed any more proof of the greatness of Bill Belichick, and I can’t imagine why you would, here it is. So mighty is his coaching superpower that an effete Cabernet-sipping Hollywood pretty boy with no knowledge of football of any kind can give arguably the greatest football coaching acting performance simply by reading a biography of him. Not because Kyle Chandler met with him. Not because he followed The Hooded One around and studied his mannerisms and how he does his job the way some method actors will work with cops or soldiers to prepare for a role. No. This non-football fan learned how to play Coach Taylor just from a book about Belichick. That would be like me playing the Queen of England just from reading about her and nailing the role.

And make no mistake, Kyle Chandler did give probably the greatest portrayal of a football coach ever. You could throw in Pat O’Brien in “Knute Rockne, All American” for sure. Al Pacino chewed scenery in “Any Given Sunday” but I loved it for the unintentional comedy. Gene Hackman was slumming in “The Replacements” so he doesn’t count. And I’ll give it to Henry Winkler in “The Waterboy” and Billy Bob Thornton’s portrayal as Coach Taylor in the movie version of “FNL.” But no one ever nailed the role of a football coach better than Kyle Chandler did, and now we know who deserves the credit.

Bill Belichick is not only the best real coach in the world, he’s the best fictional one as well. They should’ve have given the Best Actor in a Drama Series Emmy to him.

We’re on to Dillon.

Barry Melrose joined the show to talk about the NHL trade deadline. Although Melrose likes the trade of Brett Connolly from Tampa to Boston, he thinks the team needs to make more moves to keep ahead of Florida, who just traded for Jaromir Jagr. He also weighs in on the job security of Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli.

Early Monday morning, the Bruins acquired a former sixth overall pick Brett Connolly from the Lightning for their second-round picks in the next two drafts. The trade deadline is only hours away, and while GM Chiarelli noted that a lot of moves have already been made, he hasn't ruled out that the team could add more players.
