With his boy-next-door good looks and amiable earnestness, Scott Porter is best known for his regular roles on TV dramas. Porter was a football player in high school but eventually fell into acting and singing. After time on the Off-Broadway stage and making a brief soap opera turn, he won his breakthrough role, joining the cast of the lauded sports drama "Friday Night Lights" (NBC, 2006-2011). While appearing regularly on the show, Porter also kicked off his movie career, with featured parts in the big-budget action film "Speed Racer" (2008) and the horror remake "Prom Night" (2008), among others. Once his role on "Friday Night Lights" was scaled back, he pursued more TV work, eventually signing on as a regular for the Alabama-set dramedy series "Hart of Dixie" (CW, 2011- ). In addition to proving himself as a versatile actor, Porter has also occasionally put his vocal talent to work, singing in productions such as "Bandslam" (2009).
