Zach Gilford is used to being under the spotlight as the QB from Fiday Night Lights, but now he has moved to a bigger playing field. Deadline reports that Gilford will star opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand for director Kim Jee-woon. He will play "the young small-town cop who works for Schwarzenegger’s sheriff character. They are all that stands between a drug cartel and the Mexican border after the kingpin escapes from a U.S. prison and races home."
The film is about to start in Albuquerque. Gilford last starred in the indie drama In Our Nature and is shooting Long Time Gone.He will next be seen in the Matthew Leutwyler-directed Answers To Nothing, alongside Dane Cook, Julie Benz and Barbara Hershey.
