Small Bit About Zach Gilford’s Role In ‘The Next Chapter of The Purge’


Fellow Chicago native Zach Gilford, who broke out as Matt Saracen in “Friday Night Lights” and will next be seen in Radio Silence’s Devil’s Due, above, is already hard at work on The Next Chapter of The Purge.

Bloody reader Guillermo A. pointed us to an interview with the Chicago Tribune where he talks about having the Devil’s baby, and entering the annual Purge.

It took a while to get used to.

He stars alongside Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, and Keith Stanfield.
