Kyle Chandler stars in "Super 8," a sci-fi thriller written and directed by J.J. Abrams.

Kyle Chandler is best known for his acclaimed performance as head football coach Eric Taylor in the NBC television series "Friday Night Lights," based on Peter Berg's feature film of the same name. Kyle received an Emmy nomination in 2010 for his performance in the series, which focuses on a Texas football team and the struggles they face on and off the field. Thanks to the attention from this series, Chandler has emerged as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents.

Chandler was born in Buffalo, New York, and raised in Loganville, a small farming community in Georgia. Shortly after being spotted by a talent scout, he made his move to Los Angeles where he immediately started landing lead roles in television.

Chandler was seen in the hit medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" and as Grant in NBC's "The Lyons Den" starring opposite Rob Lowe. For his performance in "Grey's Anatomy," Chandler was nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Guest Performance in a Drama Series. He also earned critical reviews for his portrayal of Jeff Metcalf in the acclaimed series "Homefront" and gained national recognition for his work as the lead role on "Early Edition." Chandler's other television appearances include a lead role in "What About Joan," "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself" and "China Beach."

On the big screen, Chandler's credits include the box-office hit "King Kong," "Mullholland Falls," "Angel's Dance," "Pure Country," "The Day the Earth Stood Still," and "The Color of Evening."

On Broadway, Chandler appeared as Hal Carter in "Picnic," opposite Ashley Judd. A drama graduate from the University of Georgia, he currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
