Scott Porter Shows Off His Beatbox Fusion on 'Chelsea Lately' (VIDEO)

Scott Porter, 'Chelsea Lately'Scott Porter may be heating up 'Hart of Dixie' right now as lawyer George Tucker, but acting isn't his only passion. He had a song featured in a movie he was in, 'Bandslam,' but it isn't just singing that's another passion, as he demonstrated on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!)

He was once in a fusion a cappella group which performed a variety of genres, like the contestants have to on 'The Sing-Off.' In fact, when we heard his a cappella drums and guitar sounds, we couldn't help but think how well he might fit in with one of those groups on the show. It would take him back to his roots, as he has a long history in singing groups like that.

Scott Porter of 'Friday Night Lights' is Ready for Adventure on 'Nomads'

scott porter nomads friday night lightsSome of our favorite 'Friday Night Lights' graduates are starting to find their post-game footing.

Taylor Kitsch is heading to the big screen in 'John Carter of Mars', Minka Kelly is starring in a CBS comedy pilot, and Jason Street himself, Scott Porter, has landed a leading role in 'Nomads', the CW's adventure series pilot.

'Nomads' sounds like a welcome departure from the network's recent teen girl-friendly fare. The show follows a group of broke, young (and probably very sexy) backpackers working secret missions for the CIA abroad.

According to reports, Underwood has joined the cast of 'The Event,' a new drama pilot about a conspiracy to assassinate the President, in which a regular man (Jason Ritter) finds himself caught in the middle. How very '24' of NBC. [Hollywood Reporter]

Inspiration for Friday Night Lights' character dies

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 29th 2008 3:41PM
Scott Porter Friday Night LightsReality is not reality like in TV reality series. Reality, in fact, is usually too true and very often sad. With that in mind, David Edwards, the young man who was the inspiration for the character Jason Street on NBC's Friday Night Lights, has died. Just 20 years old, David was injured by playing high school football for San Antonio Madison in November 2003. He was a defensive back, and while going after a pass, he collided with an Austin Westlake receiver. Edwards' neck was broken and the injury resulted in his becoming paralyzed.

Friday Night Lights: How Did I Get Here

Glenn Morshower and Jesse Plemons - Friday Night Lights
(S02E06) And you may ask yourself - Well... How did I get here?

It's a great title for this episode as we find a lot of our pals in Dillon questioning, being questioned about, or owning up to the situation they are currently in. That doesn't make for huge plot points that you can point to and say, "Look at that!" But it does bring up some interesting questions, and pave the way for stories in the future. With so many of the characters getting time this week, all of these changes actually overshadowed the one big, holy smokes, moment of the episode. That little thing you see in the screen cap.

Friday Night Lights: Let's Get It On

Lance and Eric - Friday Night Lights
(S05E05) "Lance!"

Week five of season two brings us another packed episode. Eric is getting settled back into his role as the Panther's coach, and being with his family. Big changes are in the air for Landry on, and off, the football field. A more assertive Matt is coming to some realizations about Julie. And we find out the result of the great Mexican shark blood surgery road trip. It's a lot to get to.

Friday Night Lights: Backfire

Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland - Friday Night Lights
(S03E04) "The Eagle has landed. It's a done deal." - Buddy Garrity

Another Friday night spent with NBC, and this one came across as a little bit strange. Not bad strange, or good heavens, what now strange. Just that the story here caught me a little off guard. It's a little early in the season for what you might call a pivotal episode. Usually at this point things are being put in motion, or big picture stories are getting a break for a stand-alone episode. Such is not the case in Dillon, as three big stories had big moments this week. To balance it out, we also had more from the shark blood road trip, and the quickly getting away from us Lyla crusade. All that, and some other junk, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: Are You Ready For Friday Night?

(S02E03) "What if I told you I could make him go away and you could have your job back?" - Buddy Garrity

That line was the big feature in the promotion this week, and it certainly means a lot moving forward, but that was just a tiny part of what was a jam packed episode three. Really, sometimes when I look back over an episode of FNL I can't believe it's only an hour long show. When it's firing on all cylinders, they really can deliver a boatload of story. And that's what we got in episode three, with everybody getting involved.

Friday Night Lights: Bad Ideas

by Brett Love, posted Oct 13th 2007 8:00AM
zach gilford - friday night lights(S02E02) As I was watching the show tonight, thoughts on this post were running through my head. Initially I planned on doing like last week and pushing the Landry/Tyra stuff to the end of the post, after we go through the parts of the episode that actually make some sense. But then I typed out that episode title, "Bad Ideas", and I just can't get over how well that fits.

They may have intended that title as a reference to what is going on with many of the characters. Things like Tami's admission that her insistence that she and Julie stay in Dillon was a bad idea, how Buddy's own actions have created his situation, the experimental Mexican surgery proposed to Street, or even Antwone's trip to the Justin Timberlake concert. To me though, THE bad idea is nothing that any of the characters are doing. It is this Landry and Tyra story that the writers and producers have cooked up. So we'll get started there, after the jump.

Friday Night Lights: Last Days Of Summer (season premiere)

by Brett Love, posted Oct 5th 2007 10:31PM
Adrianne Palicki and Jesse Plemons - Friday Night Lights(S02E01) And we're back for another season with the Dillon Panthers. You have to think that there is some pressure on the folks behind the show as they kick off this new year. The renewal was great and all, but I suspect it came with some helpful suggestions as to the kind of numbers the network is looking for on Friday nights. It should be interesting to see how the show performs on the new night.

Over the summer we lost eight months of Texas time, but that really doesn't matter. For the most part, we pick up all of our ongoing stories where we left off last spring. Anything we really need to know is handed off to us as we are reunited with these characters again. Since the show kicked off with Matt and Landry at the pool, let's start there.

Friday Night Lights: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

by Brett Love, posted Mar 22nd 2007 9:15AM
Scott Porter(S01E19) After a short break, we are back for the final run of the season. There were answers to a couple lingering question, the avoiding of another one, and, as the title says, changes are in the air for many of the residents of Dillon. There was so much going on for everyone this week, it's hard to know where to start. Let's talk about Street.

There will be no trip to Beijing in Street's future, and I'm happy about that. His progress on the rugby adventure has seemed rather quick, so I liked hearing Herc's explanation for Street not making the team. He's not comfortable in the chair, and given how recent his injury still is, he really shouldn't be. That scene with Herc was very good. They do share in a lot of ribbing of each other, but they've developed a nice friendship. Herc is rough around the edges, but you can tell he wants what's best for Street. I also liked his line, "This is championship QB, not therapy."

Former TV Squad blogger Ryan J. Budke made a visit to the set of NBC's Heroes for Netscape.com. Ryan interviews Masi Oka (Hiro) and gets a couple hints about what is coming up for his character on the show. They also talk about his background in visual effects and other projects he has worked on. Then Masi is joined by Scott Porter (Jason Street) from Friday Night Lights who does his best Michael Winslow. The interview does have one small spoiler for the show, so be warned.
