This is the 2nd time that Kyle Chandler has been nominated for the Emmys in the “Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series” category. Will he be able to win this time?Advertisement
“Bloodline” is a dramatic thriller from the creators of “Damages”, which explores the underlain secrets of an American family, the Rayburns, that slowly rises to the surface through lies and dishonesty and threatens to rip the family apart. A climactic moment arrives when a serious crime is committed, the repercussions of which only get worse.
Kyle Chandler plays John Rayburn, son of Robert and Sally Rayburn and a detective with the local sheriff’s department. Kyle was nominated for the same role last year for “Bloodline” Season 1 in the Emmys but he did not manage to win.
However, according to Gold Derby, he has a better chance of clinching the victory this time because his character on the show has transformed into a dual-faced individual, hell bent on cover up the horrible crime that he commits in the first season and at the same time protect the golden-boy image that he has in front of the world.
Kyle Chandler is no stranger to winning Emmys. He bagged an Emmy for the same category that he has been nominated for this year back in 2011 for his character, coach Eric Taylor, in the show “Friday Night Lights”.
Other than he has also briefly starred in “Grey’s Anatomy” as the head of a bomb squad, Dylan Young. He has also acted in the movie “Super 8”, which has been directed by J. J Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg. He also has TV shows such as “Spectacular” and “Carol” to add to his acting credits, even though none of them got much recognition.
He is currently shooting a film called “Sidney Hall” and simultaneously preparing for “Bloodline” Season 3.
“I’ve been doing this for awhile, but you never stop learning how to act and what creates the possibilities for creating roles,” Chandler said in an interview with Indie Wire.
