Friday Night Lights' Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen) gets married
Okay. So, Matt Saracen got married and it wasn't to Coach T's daughter. Whatever. I'm not mad.
Friday Night Lights star Zach Gilford tied the knot over the weekend with Keile Sanchez of The Glades and Lost.
Keile and Matt Zach met in 2010 on the set of The Matadors, an ABC flop. Gilford proposed in 2011, and the two married on Saturday in California. Gilford, who turns 31 in January, has never been married. However, 36-year-old Sanchez was previously married to writer and director Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction). Hopefully, Sanchez and Gilford can have a more lasting marriage — Sanchez is pregnant and due in early 2013.
What else is in the store for the newlyweds?
Sanchez is still working on the set of A&E's The Glades. She plays Callie, a woman trying to raise a 13-year-old son while her husband is in jail... all while working as a nurse and attending medical school. Callie has another possible love interest in Det. Longworth (Sam Passmore), a Chicago cop who heads to south Florida and joins the state police. What ensues is lots of action and a little romance. The show was recently picked up for a fourth season.
Meanwhile, Gilford is about to return to the big screen alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand. The movie, to be released Jan. 18, 2013, also stars Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville. Aside from playing Friday Night Lights' lovable underdog-turned-hero, Matt Saracen, Gilford also starred in the short-lived (but oh-so-good) Off the Map with Mamie Gummer and Rachelle Lefevre. He then went on to star in The Mob Doctor, which was canceled in late November. For more Gilford action, you can also check out Post-Grad, where he co-stars with Gimore Girls' Alexis Bledel.
All the die-hard Friday Night Lights fans were hoping for a miracle in which Zach would marry his FNL co-star, Aimee Teegarden, and make our fan-fantasies come true. However, we're still incredibly happy for Gilford and Sanchez and wish them the very best!
