The NBC-TV series Friday Night Lights was a perfect fit for Jesse Plemons, who grew up loving and playing football in Mart, Texas. The show "really got it right on Texas football and what it's like in these towns," says Plemons, 20, who now lives in Austin. He first appeared at age 3 in a Coca-Cola commercial and decided to pursue acting after his role in the 1999 movie Varsity Blues at age 10.
