Josh Charles plays Coach in Amy Schumer's must-see 'Friday Night Lights' parody

Posted on

Clear eyes, full hearts … don’t rape?

That might not be the catchphrase of Friday Night Lights‘ Coach Taylor, but it is the catchphrase of Football Town Lights‘ Coach Thompson—head coach of the Bronconeers. At least, that’s what we learned in Amy Schumer’s parody of the beloved FNL.

The sketch premiered during Inside Amy Schumer‘s season 3 opener, starring Josh Charles as Coach and Schumer as Coach’s wife. Coach Thompson is trying to teach his boys about the joys of being a football player who doesn’t rape. And Schumer? Well, she’s busy shopping for huge wine glasses and perfecting the art of the Tami Taylor dance

(Sadly, there’s no character named Smash.) 

Important update: Tami Taylor approves.
