Bio

Kyle Chandler is an American actor best known for his starring television roles as Gary Hobson in Early Edition (1996-2000) and as Coach Eric Taylor on Friday Night Lights, from 2006-2011.

Chandler was born in Buffalo, New York, the son of Sally, a dog breeder, and Edward Chandler, a farm owner and pharmaceutical sales representative.

He was raised in Loganville, Georgia and near Chicago, Illinois, and educated at the University of Georgia, in Athens.

Chandler's first major role on television was as the Cleveland Indians rightfielder Jeff Metcalf in the ABC show Homefront. Homefront was a drama set in the late 1940s in the fictional town of River Run, Ohio.

In his next television role, Kyle moved from the past to play a man who had the ability to change future disasters as the central character in the CBS television series Early Edition.

He portrayed bar owner Gary Hobson, a stockbroker turned hero who received tomorrow's newspaper today delivered to his door by a mysterious cat. In 1996 he received the Saturn Award for Best Actor on Television for his portrayal of Gary.

Subsequently, Chandler appeared opposite Joan Cusack as investment banker Jake Evans in the short-lived ABC comedy series What About Joan.

In a departure from his usual good guy roles, Chandler played scheming lawyer Grant Rashton in the short-lived series The Lyon's Den.

Other roles on Chandler's resume include: William Griner, Tour of Duty, and 1930s B-actor Bruce Baxter in the 2005 film King Kong.

In February 2006, Chandler appeared as the ill-fated bomb squad leader Dylan Young in "It's The End of The World" & "As We Know It", a two-part episode on the ABC series Grey's Anatomy that followed the 2006 Super Bowl.

He received substantial notice and press for the appearance as a result and subsequently received a nomination in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series category for the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.

He appeared again in the February 15, 2007 episode of Grey's Anatomy: "Drowning On Dry Land", and the February 22, 2007 episode: "Some Kind of Miracle".

Following his Emmy-nominated guest role in Grey's Anatomy, Chandler starred as Coach Eric Taylor in the NBC drama series Friday Night Lights, which follows the lives of a high-school football coach and his players in a small Texas town.
