As far as television is concerned, there's something just irresistibly funny about dads who cook. Well, we beg to differ. Here are five TV dads who knew their way around the kitchen, to a greater or lesser extent.
Walter White from
Coach Taylor from "Friday Night Lights": Coach Eric Taylor, played by Kyle Chandler, is one of the most beloved father characters on TV. Many memorable scenes from the show take place in the kitchen or at the dinner table. Coach Taylor cooked for team barbecues and he was also a fan of bacon. In an interview with The Times in 2011, Chandler said he and the crew would insert bacon into as many scenes as possible. "It wasn't a set, it was a real house," Chandler said. "So every time we went there to shoot, I'd go in early and cook everyone bacon."
Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable from
Phil Dunphy from
Deacon Claybourne from "Nashville": When he's not pining after country star Reyna James or writing a hit song, Deacon Claybourne is trying to be a good new dad. When it comes to cooking, Claybourne whips up a mean bowl of cereal and milk. He also eats things out of a can and he can burn a lasagna like no one else can.
