If you're an avid Friday Night Lights watcher like me, you may have wondered where little Matt's mom is. He lives with his grandma and his dad's in Iraq (again, after a brief furlough home), but nothing's ever been said about Mama Seracen.
Kim Dickens, from Deadwood - a show I've sadly never seen - and from a couple episodes of Lost, where I liked her a lot, is the lucky actress cast to play Matt's mom. I hate that I have to wait until 2009 to see my show. :(
