“Friday Night Lights” writer-director Peter Berg accused Mitt Romney of plagiarism and “falsely and inappropriately” linking his campaign to the high school football show, a letter given to the Hollywood Reporter states. At the heart of Berg’s contention is that Romney, who said he was a “Friday Night Lights” fan, used the phrase, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose” in his stump speeches.
Washington Post: “The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan,” Berg wrote. (Our Celebritology blogsees Romney as more of a Joe McCoy). “Please come up with your own campaign slogan.”
