Gorgeous Connie Britton of "Friday Night Lights" fame was spotted entering the Ed Sullivan Theater this afternoon to tape an appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman." I can hardly wait to see pervy Dave drool all over her -- and who could blame him? If I were gonna marry a chick I'd want her to be just like this one.
I first fell in love with Connie as Ed Burns' sister-in-law in "The Brothers McMullen" way back in 1995. (The lights came up in the theater I saw it at in Washington and both of my brothers were in there, too!) I recently told Ed that I thought she was the unsung hero of the film and he wholeheartedly agreed, telling me he "lucked out" when he found her through an ad in the back of a trade magazine. Ed says he still keeps in touch with her after all these years -- I wonder if they're having dinner tonight!
