What would Tami Taylor do? It's a question plenty of us - or at least those of us who'd like to emulate the perfectly coiffed character played by Connie Britton for five seasons on “Friday Night Lights”   -  ask ourselves on a regular basis. Now, following Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis' historic 13-hour filibuster , it's become a rallying cry for abortion rights advocates. On Monday, Britton announced a collaboration with Planned Parenthood on limited edition T-shirts designed to show opposition to Senate Bill 5 ,  the proposed legislation that would dramatically restrict access to abortion in the state.

" Britton has been the most vocal about the possibility of a reunion, and she has given varying answers, but her reason for the delay is surprising. Apparently, we have the coach himself to blame.

It happened to Matthew Bomer one day at the airport. "I noticed myself at the ticket booth in Houston trying to charm myself into a first-class seat with the girls at the ticket counter," says the actor, who plays smooth-talking forger Neal Caffrey on USA Network's "White Collar. " "When you spend 12 to 15 hours a day on a role, a strange symbiosis happens where you influence the character and the character influences your life. " On some level, it happens to most actors, and no surprise: Spending 70 or more hours a week inhabiting the life of a fictional construct can tend to blur the lines.

For Connie Britton, 2011 was a banner year. She had sex with some being in a black rubber S&M suit and managed to give birth to the antichrist as Vivien Harmon in her one-season stint on FX's "American Horror Story. " The sort of deeds that would lend support to the 45-year-old actress' understated assertion: "I like to throw people for a loop. " No kidding. After five years of befriending a loyal following of viewers as Tami Taylor, the genial and supportive wife and mother on cult favorite "Friday Night Lights," Britton quickly transitioned from a weekly overdose of nurturing y'alls to ear-piercing screams on the cable drama, a role that earned her an Emmy nomination this year for lead actress in a miniseries.

As I began to read the paper on Monday, I was pleased with the women's Final Four tournament coverage. This was short-lived as I turned the page and viewed the men's bracket. The coverage of the men's Final Four was written in more detail, and the bracket illustration was in color and in multidimensional type. The women's bracket was in simple text and considerably less attractive. This is gender discrimination! I am a teacher and try hard to break down the walls of discrimination in our society.

UNDERRATED Jeff Mangum's return : This singer-songwriter behind the beloved indie-folk band Neutral Milk Hotel could've been filed on the other side of this column given the fierce, cultish devotion his 1998 album "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" has inspired. But after dropping out of the public eye for years, Mangum's recent tour that included a goose bump-raising stop among the Occupy Wall Street protesters shows he deserves an even bigger following. Connie Britton in 'American Horror Story' : It says something about the magnetic quality of Britton's acting that even when surrounded by the most cringe-inducing material from creator Ryan Murphy she remains unwaveringly watchable.

After five years playing the strong, supportive guidance counselor and wife Tami Taylor on the football drama "Friday Night Lights," it's no surprise Connie Britton developed an image as something of a role model. "When 'Friday Night Lights' was over, I definitely was almost stunted in a way by having this sense of responsibility - that I needed to somehow maintain this role model or this image that I was putting out into the world, and that I had a responsibility to that," Britton said during a recent Envelope Emmy Round Table on the topic of TV dramas.

After the indelible impression Connie Britton made as Tami Taylor, the über-capable and compassionate high school counselor and wife to a football coach on "Friday Night Lights," Britton ventured into the outlandish fun house of FX's "American Horror Story" - and received Emmy nominations for her work on both shows. This season, she's the pivot around which ABC's hit new drama "Nashville" revolves, playing Rayna James, a mid-career country music star battling to remake her place in a changing industry.
