When you think of Taylor Kitsch, you might picture him like this, as Tim Riggins in the 2006-2011 TV series “Friday Night Lights.”

(Hey, who am I to judge?)

Kitsch has gone on to other roles, including the ill-fated second season of “True Detective” (RIP, Colin Farrell’s mustache), but Riggins is still perhaps his best-known character. 

Maybe that’s about to change.

Kitsch stars as cult leader David Koresh in “Waco,” a six-part series coming to the Paramount Network in 2018. The trailer dropped Tuesday, and let’s just say this ain’t no Tim Riggins.

The series about the government's deadly siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco in 1993 also stars Michael Shannon, Melissa Benoist, John Leguizamo and Julia Garner.

Not familiar with the Paramount Network? It’s a “reinvention” of Spike.
