Scott Porter currently stars as George Tucker, resident lawyer and southern gentleman, on the CW series “Hart of Dixie,” a fish-out-of-water story about New York doctor Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) trying to figure out life and love in the charming town of Bluebell, Alabama.
Porter is perhaps best known for his critically-acclaimed performance on the beloved Emmy-winning NBC drama “Friday Night Lights,” on which he starred as the fallen quarterback, Jason Street. He also had recurring roles on the CBS hit drama “The Good Wife,” opposite Julianna Margulies, and on “Caprica,” the prequel series to the SyFy smash hit “Battlestar Galactica.” Additionally, Porter has lent his voice to the wildly popular X-Men franchise. He can be heard as the voice of Scott Summers (Cyclops) in the animated series on the G4 network, as well as a lead character in the video game series “X-Men: Destiny.” He will also be voicing Cyclops in Marvel’s upcoming online game, “Marvel Heroes.”
On the big screen, Porter will next be seen in Jamie Linden’s romantic comedy “Ten Year,” alongside Channing Tatum, Kate Mara and Rosario Dawson, which premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival. He also completed production on Maggie Carey’s “The To Do List,” a film also starring Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader and Andy Samberg. Additional film credits include “Dear John,” directed by Lasse Hallstrom, opposite Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried; “The Good Guy,” an independent drama starring Alexis Bledel, Bryan Greenberg and Aaron Yoo; “Bandslam,” directed by Todd Graff also starring Lisa Kudrow and Vanessa Hudgens; Andy and Larry Wachowski's live-action “Speed Racer”; “Prom Night,” opposite Brittany Snow; “Music and Lyrics,” starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore; and the independent feature “Descent,” starring Rosario Dawson.
