'Lights Out': Holt McCallany shows the softer side of the tough guy

As "Friday Night Lights" prepares to take the field for the last time, those of us who are unhealthily over-invested in Coach Taylor are looking for something to numb the pain that will inevitably follow "FNL's" final episode.FX's "Lights Out" may be an unexpected contender. Holt McCallany plays Patrick "Lights" Leary, a former heavyweight boxing champion with an itch to return to the ring to support his wife and three daughters. The marketing has largely swayed toward the boxing aspect of the show, with posters displaying McCallany looking stone-faced and bloody, gloves up, but we're particularly drawn to the way the series taps into Leary's family life outside the ring.If Coach Taylor parents like a coach, Leary parents like a boxer, as you can see from the clip below. Played by Meredith Hagner, Ryann Shane, and "Fringe's" Lily Pilblad, Leary's daughters bring out his softer side. Their boyfriends, not so much.You also won't want to... //

And who doesn't love a comeback? Stars Holt McCallany, Pablo Schreiber and Stacy Keach stepped in the ring to tell me about their new FX show (premieres Tues., Jan. 11, 10PM ET).  Read more.... //

'Lights Out' Offers Ringside Seat in Boxer's World But Sometimes Lacks Punch

Despite some compelling moments, 'Lights Out' (10PM ET Tuesday, FX) isn't always an easy show to like. For a drama about a visceral contact sport -- boxing -- it has trouble sustaining intensity from episode to episode, and it echoes a number of cable dramas about conflicted characters trying to hang on to their middle-class or upper-middle-class lifestyles. And if you're expecting Patrick 'Lights' Leary to be a Rocky Balboa clone, think again.
