After moving on to college, a last minute decision mind you, Friday Night Lights actor Matt Saracen has fallen off the map, but don’t worry producer Shonda Rhimes has nabbed the star for her own primetime medical drama due out this year. The series takes place in a medical clinic in South America. Aside from Zach Gilford in Off The Map, actress Rachelle Lefevre of Twilight fame is also on board.

Previously have worked with Rhimes before as a guest star on Grey’s Anatomy, Zach Gilford will play “an all American frat boy turned plastic surgeon.” What a switch from his previous stint as Matt on FNL. Here’s what Gilford had to say about his new role:

Shonda Rhimes “told me she loves FNL, but wants to distance me from that role as much as possible. That excited me.”

It’s going to be interesting to watch Gilford portray such an opposite character from his alter ego on the Direct TV series. Tell us what you think FNL fans, about Zach Gilford In Off the Map? Leave your comments below.
