Goes Off Without A Hitch

MANILA, Philippines — A Philippine official says “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch was not hassled at Manila’s airport recently, as the Canadian actor indicated this week.
Kitsch said Wednesday on the “Late Show with David Letterman” that customs officers stopped him at the airport and ordered him back to Japan because his passport didn’t have enough pages to stamp his arrival. He was to finish filming Oliver Stone’s “Savages” in the Philippines.
Kitsch said he was let in only after proving with his iPhone that he was an actor.
Philippine Customs chief Ruffy Biazon wrote in his blog Friday that no airport records show Kitsch visited Manila, and that his officers do not stamp passports.
Kitsch is best known for his role as American football star Tim Riggins on the television series “Friday Night Lights.”
