Rosie O’Donnell may play on Friday Night Lights

The producers of the NBC show Friday Night Lights want Rosie O’Donnell for a guest star and they may get their wish.

FNL executive producer Jason Katims told TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello that he wants Rosie to play an upcoming soccer coach, who is angry that the football program receives most of the school’s budget. The character is described as funny and would be on for six or seven episodes, Ausiello reported.

O’Donnell’s rep said that O'Donnell loves the show and is currently “in talks” about the role.

Normally, I’m not a fan of stunt casting, but I think O’Donnell would be great in this role. Anyone who saw her in A League of Their Own knows that she’s athletic and definitely “funny.”
