“Friday Night Lights'” Adrianne Palicki discusses ‘Lone Star’

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Talk about out with the old, in with the new! In the last few days, Adrianne Palicki has 1) played her final scene as Tyra Colette on “Friday Night Lights,” 2) joined in a cast and crew wrap party for the acclaimed show, and 3) flown to Dallas in time to begin production on her new series – Fox’s “Lone Star” – this week.

Adrianne tells us she’s glad for the immediate turn-around between the series. It keeps her from getting too down about saying goodbye to a show and cast she’s loved. According to her, creator Peter Berg and all of the original cast members of “Friday Night Lights” planned to be on hand for the farewell gathering, which she anticipated as “a good occasion for all of us. It was such a beautiful thing to be a part of.”

Another series was hardly on top of her wish list when she first heard of “Lone Star,” she admits. “I’d had such an amazing experience on ‘Friday Night Lights,’ I couldn’t imagine something else coming along of that level. I was thinking about a movie, which would only be a three-month commitment.” Then her reps asked her to read “Lone Star,” in which James Wolk plays a con man who has set up two different false lives for himself, including a rich fiancée (Palicki) in Dallas and an everyday home town girl wife (Eloise Mumford) in Midland.

“The character I would normally play is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks, so when they said Cat (the rich girl), I thought I’d love to play someone so different from anything I’ve done before.” Meeting Wolk sealed the deal, she says. “You have to have the right actor to play Bob, or the show can’t work. He’s perfect.”

And there’s a side benefit – fashion.

“Oh, my God! Even in the pilot alone! I’ve never worn Manolos in my life and now I have three pairs in the wardrobe. Amazing Versace and Valentino. I thought, ‘Why didn’t I put it in my contract that I want to keep the clothes?’ I usually wear jeans, so kind of getting dressed up every day is really fun.” Maybe she’ll take to it and we’ll be seeing her with a $40,000 handbag soon? She laughs. “Not unless it’s a rental.”
