Scott Porter stars as Bluebell, Alabama’s golden boy George Tucker in The CW’s new series Hart of Dixie, a fish-out-of-water story about a New York City doctor (Rachel Bilson) adjusting to life in a small Southern town after she inherits a local medical practice.
Porter is perhaps best known for his critically-acclaimed performance on the beloved 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 smash hit Battlestar Galactica.
On the big screen, Porter will next be seen in Jamie Linden’s romantic comedy Ten Year, alongside Channing Tatum, Kate Mara, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson. He recently wrapped production on Maggie Carey’s The To Do List, a film also starring Rachel Bilson, Aubrey Plaza and Connie Britton. 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, 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.
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 voicing a lead character in the video game series X-Men: Destiny.
After moving to New York City in 2005, Porter starred in two off-Broadway productions: Altar Boyz, which earned a Drama League Ensemble Cast nomination, and the award-winning Toxic Audio, which was honored with a Drama Desk Award for Most Unique Theatrical Experience.
