mentioned my delight about Jurnee Smollett's addition to the Friday Night Lights cast. According to FNL Fans via TV Guide here are more details about her character:
When Season 4 kicks off, it will turn out that the town’s redistricting has placed Landry (Jesse Plemons) in Coach Taylor’s East Dillon High. He’ll become involved in a love triangle with an African-American couple, footballer Vince (played by Michael B. Jordan), whose father is in prison, and Jess (Jurnee Smollett), who works with her dad at a local hangout. “It’s good to see mixed couples on TV,” Plemons says. “The last girl I dated [in real life] was mixed race."Friday Night Lights is one of my favorite TV shows so I'm excited to see how this new coupling turn outs. Landry had some serious awkward cuteness going on last season with Tyra so hopefully the storylines stay compelling as they usually are.
The new season premieres tomorrow night on DirecTV at 9 p.m.
If you don't have DirecTV you'll have to wait until it airs on NBC at the beginning of next year.
