Taylor Kitsch Leaves 'Friday Night Lights'

Taylor Kitsch, aka bad boy Tim Riggins, won’t be back next season as a series regular on Friday Night Lights.

Executive producer Jason Katims tells TV Guide Magazine that the 28-year-old actor is pursuing a film career, including the sci-fi fantasy film John Carter of Mars that starts shooting this month.

“Because this was a big opportunity for him, we wanted to let him do that,” says Katims. “We’ll stay in close contact with production and try to get him for as many episodes as possible.”

The fourth season of Friday Night Lights currently airs on DirecTV through February (most likely its penultimate).
