Exclusive: 'Friday Night Lights' Drafts Soap Stud

Landry Clarke, meet your competition.

Friday Night Lights has tapped ex-As the World Turns troublemaker Zach Roerig to join the cast as Cash, a local rodeo star who lassoes Adrianne Palicki’s Tyra.

As executive producer Jason Katims teased back in July, Cash will appear just as Tyra’s romance with Landry is cooling off. “Tyra in the past eight months has [realized] that, while she loves Landry, she kind of feels like he’s not really The Guy,” he said. “So it becomes a story about ‘Are they going to be able to be friends? And will Landry be able to accept that?’”

My guess? Hell to the no! (Are the kids still saying that?)

Who’s side are you on? Team Landry or Team Cash? Vote below!
