Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose … even after 10 years. The cast of the beloved TV adaptation of Friday Night Lights will be reuniting for a special, one-night event later this summer. In case you needed an excuse to travel to Austin, the June 10 reunion will be hosted in correlation with the ATX Festival, and will feature a fan pep rally, “Texas eats,” tailgating, live music and a screening of a classic FNL episode. The official list of participants hasn't been announced yet, but as Buzzfeed notes, show stars Katherine Willis, Taylor Kitsch, Adrianne Palicki, Derek Phillips and Louanne Stephens have attended the festival in the past.

Two CCM stars have joined the cast of Tyler Perry’s upcoming Passion musical, which will be broadcast live on Fox on Palm Sunday. Michael W Smith, who will play one of the disciples, and Yolanda Adams join Seal (Pontius Pilate), Telenovela’s Jencarlos Canela (Jesus), Trisha Yearwood (Mary), Chris Daughtry (Judas), and others for the musical play that is a modern-day retelling of Christ’s crucifixion. The performance will be broadcast from New Orleans, where Perry’s contemporary take on the New Testament story takes place. Discuss
