Friday Night Lights” fans got an unexpected surprise as one of the show’s most beloved stars, Zach Gilford (a.k.a. Matt Saracen), finally joined Twitter! The actor was welcomed aboard by one of his former co-stars from the 2009 movie “Dare,” Emmy Rossum. The actress wrote from her page, “So excited that my good friend the WONDERFUL actor @Zach_Gilford is now on Twitter!

Elsewhere in the Twitterverse, stars were gearing up for tonight’s hotly anticipated New York City premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.” The film’s fashionable leading lady Emma Watson posted over the weekend, “That’s London done, now off to New York! Wearing my favourite trench that Christopher Bailey @Burberry designed for me. Love it!” Meanwhile, famous fans of the series were just as excited for the big night, including Olympic skater Johnny Weir who tweeted, “Harry Potter premiere tonight!” and Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas who told fellow “HP” fans, “heading out later to go to the HARRY POTTER premiere. i expect some magical s*** to ensue.” And don’t forget, we’ll be live blogging tonight’s premiere for you guys!
