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

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2011 5:00AM
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.

Jaime King Is Tired of Being Perfect, And So Is Her Character on 'Hart of Dixie'

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 3rd 2011 2:30PM
Jaime KingOnce upon a time, whimsical, small-town dramas were The WB's stock in trade -- our screens were filled with quirky characters, snappy dialogue, forbidden romance and the trials and tribulations of growing up. After the network merged with UPN to form the glossy CW, there seemed to be an identity crisis in the netlet's formative years, and charming family tales were jettisoned in favor of the glitz and glamour of 'Gossip Girl' and '90210'.

'Hart of Dixie' signals a welcome return to form for the nostalgic WB crowd; set in the fictional town of Bluebell, Alabama, it tells the story of Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), a big-city doctor who inherits half of a medical practice in the close-knit town and must learn to embrace the human side of medicine, all while resisting her attraction to the sadly engaged George Tucker (Scott Porter), the town's golden boy.

Jaime King plays Lemon Breeland, George's fiancée and Zoe's natural Southern nemesis, and AOL TV caught up with the effervescent actress (who also happens to be a blogger for our sister site The Huffington Post) to preview the upcoming episodes. Read on for King's thoughts on Zoe and Lemon's rivalry, the juicy secrets her character is hiding, and, most refreshingly, her candid thoughts on the shallow nature of Hollywood, and how the pressure to be perfect helps her relate to Lemon.

The 'Hart of Dixie' Cast Teases Love & Catfights on Their New CW Show

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 22nd 2011 8:00PM
Let's get one thing straight about The CW's new series 'Hart of Dixie': You're not going to see the stars shilling this show at Comic-Con. Ever. (If you do, let that be a sign of the end of Comic-Con, FYI.)

While we're at it, here's another thing to know about the new series: Just because Rachel Bilson is working with 'The O.C.' creator Josh Schwartz again doesn't mean her new character, Zoe Hart, will be anything like Summer Roberts.



" Summer was definitely her own entity," she told AOL TV, nixing the idea that the two characters might be similar. Of course, they are played by the same actress, so it could feel a little familiar. "You know, you're yourself, so some of her mannerisms might match up."

She did steer clear of one thing when crafting her new onscreen persona, Zoe, a New York City doctor who inherits a medical practice in a small Alabama town. "I tried to stay away from the 'ew,' that was sort of Summer's trademark. I decided to do it with a different inflection on the word."

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

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 4th 2010 3:02PM
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.

Changes coming to Friday Night Lights

by Brett Love, posted Jul 9th 2008 10:40AM

Gaius Charles - Friday Night LightsIt's a question that popped up even before our pals in Dillon had their premiere. What are they going to do when these kids start graduating? Well, we have an answer now, and I'm not sure it's going to be embraced by everyone. EW's Michael Ausiello reports that Gaius Charles (Smash) and Scott Porter (Street) have been moved to recurring status.

Producer Jason Katims released a statement that says both characters will get four episode arcs to move them into the next chapter of their lives. Presumably, those would be chapters that won't be captured by the handheld Friday Night Lights cams. The cynic in me can't help thinking that this has as much to do with the shaky nature of the FNL renewal as it does with being able to work these characters into the show. After all, the idea of budget cuts after the strange Direct TV deal isn't an outlandish one. That being said, the explanation is reasonable. They were going to have to address the graduation dilemma eventually.

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: The Confession

(S02E09) "Can I tell you what gets me going? Pee." - Isabella

A combination of the coming holidays and the writers strike means that "The Confession" is the last we will see of our pals in Dillon until after the new year. Like so many other shows, the break is a disappointment, but this was the right episode to head into a break with. As the episode title implies, this week brought us the big conclusion to the controversial murder mystery that began with the pilot. That is as good a point as any to stop and reset a few things.

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.

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?

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.
