'Friday Night Lights' signs two new recruits

MattLauria East Dillon High is having varsity football tryouts as we speak, but we're already hearing of a couple early favorites.

NBC confirms that Matt Lauria -- whom you may remember as Lindsay Price's assistant on "Lipstick Jungle" -- will join the "Friday Night Lights" team as Luke, a cute but over-confident junior who doesn't really want to play for Dillon's second fiddle team.

Michael B. Jordan ("The Wire") will take on the role of Vince, Luke's teammate and nemesis with a rough upbringing and a checkered past.

Lauria and Jordan are just a couple of the new actors being cast to fill the void of Dillon's graduated seniors, played by Zach Gilford, Minka Kelly and Adrianne Palicki.

Don't worry though, pretty sure Tim Riggins is staying put in the big D.

"Friday Night Lights"' new season will premiere on DirecTV this October.
