"You came out and you did the scene anyway, so thank you for that!"7.) Scott Porter is a cry baby Just because he was in the show, doesn't mean it doesn't make him cry just as much as the rest of us.The actor teared up during a public screening of the "State" episode and was seen wiping his eyes after watching an emotional scene between himself, Minka Kelly and Taylor Kitsch during the panel.8.)

But those who go through withdrawal won't have to wait too long, as Saracen makes a brief appearance in two more episodes this season, which is airing Wednesday nights on Direc TV's 101 Network and will debut in 2010 on NBC.

It presented some acting challenges, discussed below, for Gilford, who's Saracen has stood out in the depressed, football-obsessed town for his sheer ordinariness -- a hard-working good guy who isn't so sure about spending his life in the same town.Since making the jump to Direc TV last year, "Friday Night Lights" has said goodbye to a number of favorites.Characters such as Brian "Smash" Williams (Gaius Charles) and Jason Street (Scott Porter) earned grand farewells in Season 3, and Saracen has received a pair of showcase episodes this year.6.) Kyle Chandler is a trooper While the cast was filming the Season 1 finale, Kyle was sick to his stomach -- but he didn't let it affect him on set."I found you in the bathroom throwing up," writer-director David Hudgins said to Chandler during the panel.Before heading back to Texas to film this season's finale, Gilford spoke to Show Tracker, and taught us what it means to "' FNL' it." Any sense of whether or not Matt will make an appearance in Season 5? By the time I got there, I still hadn’t seen the script.
