Kitsch swaps 'Friday Night Lights' for sci-fi

The Associated Press, Thursday, January 26, 2012, 4:21am (PST)

LONDON (AP) -- The "Friday Night Lights" are far beyond Taylor Kitsch now. These days, if he sees something bright on the horizon, chances are it is extraterrestrial.

The British Colombian-born actor has two big sci-fi flicks coming out this year, starting with the lead role in "John Carter" in March. The film, about a military captain sent to a conflict-ridden Mars, is the first live-action movie from "Finding Nemo" director Andrew Stanton.

Following that, Kitsch appears in Peter Berg's "Battleship" this May. Alongside Rihanna, he helps fight off alien ships in a movie loosely based on the Hasbro naval game.

Kitsch jokes that, after the critically acclaimed "FNL" TV show, if it isn't sci-fi, he's not interested.
