Connie Britton Loves Amy Schumer’s Friday Night Lights Parody Just As Much As You Do

1 minute read

Earlier this year Amy Schumer released a sketch skewering rape culture through the lens of the beloved television show Friday Night Lights. In the video, Schumer stepped into the role of the football coach’s wife, lifting heavily from Tami Taylor, the role that Connie Britton originated on Friday Night Lights.

On Late Night Wednesday, Seth Meyers got the chance to ask Britton for her thoughts on the sketch. It would have been sad for those of us who love both women if Britton had been offended by Schumer’s parody. Luckily she loved it, saying she was “flattered and honored” by Schumer’s portrayal of Taylor. Britton’s favorite part of the sketch was watching Schumer’s ever-expanding wine glass. Turns out that Tami Taylor’s love of wine was something that Britton herself introduced to the character, so she was downright thrilled that Schumer picked up on it and carried the idea through to its logical plus-sized conclusion. Isn’t it great when everyone gets along?
