Although Chandler's résumé includes several small roles in big-screen fare -- such as the ambitious 2005 remake of King Kong -- his most well-received work has aired on television. His brief but memorable turn as a bomb-squad leader on "Grey's Anatomy" earned him a 2006 Emmy nod for outstanding guest actor in a drama series.
Chandler is best known, however, for his Emmy-nominated role as high school football coach Eric Taylor on "Friday Night Lights" (2006-10), a primetime drama adapted from the feature film of the same name. He also co-starred with Jamie Foxx in the 2007 thriller The Kingdom.
After private detective Billy Taggart informs the mayor of New York that his wife is having an affair, the woman's lover turns up dead. In short order, the PI learns that his mayor boss is at the center of some very shady real estate dealings.
