Kyle Chandler plays Miles Teller‘s father in this week’s coming-of-age drama, The Spectacular Now. Because he’s the dad of a wily teenager, we’re guessing he’ll give his son one or two strongly-worded talks–just like he did to some local movie-making kids in Super 8, just like he did to a Bin Laden-obsessed Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty, and just like he did to anyone who walked into the Dillon or East Dillon locker rooms on Friday Night Lights. Are we sensing a pattern here?
You can chalk it up to strong features, a calm demeanor, and a certain je ne sais quoi, but if I had to recruit any member of Hollywood’s elite to call me out and set me on the right path, it would be Coach Taylor. He means business.
