Nebraska native Scott Porter got his acting feet wet in an off-Broadway production of the play Altar Boyz, and can be heard on the original cast recording of the show's soundtrack. He began working in front of the camera with a recurring role on the daytime soap opera As the World Turns in 2006, before being cast as wheelchair-bound Jason Street on the popular series Friday Night Lights, a show based on the movie of the same name, about a small town in Texas where high-school football is among the most important things in life. In 2007, Porter played the former bandmate of Hugh Grant in the romantic comedy Music and Lyrics; he then signed on to appear in the remake of the classic horror film Prom Night, as well as the live-action adaptation of the old-school anime series Speed Racer. Porter co-starred with Channing Tatum for two movies in a row, 2010's Dear John, based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, and 2012's Ten Years, taking place at a high school reunion. He also had recurring roles on Syfy's Battlestar Galactica prequel series Caprica and the CBS legal drama The Good Wife. In the years to come, Porter remained active on screen, notably appearing in the CW's Hart of Dixie, playing George Tucker.
