Connie Britton, 'Late Show with David Letterman'When you see Connie Britton portraying Tami Taylor on 'Friday Night Lights,' the last thing to come across your mind is a blonde bimbo. And yet, that's how Britton's professional acting career began. On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), she talked about how she got her start not on stage or screen, but in murder mystery dinner theater.

It's a pretty demanding gig, requiring subtlety, ad-libbing and even some misdirection. Britton said her biggest challenge was slipping some pellets into her mouth, so she could foam at the mouth as she "died." Her fantasy promotion from the challenges of this role?

"I wanted to be the bimbo who gets stabbed in the back," she said. "All you have to do is figure out how to get the fake knife in there and then you just have to come running in with a really great scream."
