TV star shows off vocal skills on band CD, film soundtrack and small screen roles
Does George on TV’s “Hart of Dixie” have an album? If so, I’d like to buy it.

Scott Porter, 33, who plays George Tucker on “Hart of Dixie,” does not have a solo album, but he did appear off-Broadway in “Altar Boyz,” a musical about a Christian boy band, and there is a cast album from the production. He also performs “Pretend” on the soundtrack of the 2009 film “Bandslam.”
Porter, who sang in the a capella group 4:2:Five while attending the University of Central Florida, has shown off his vocal skills in two episodes of “Hart of Dixie.” “It’s nice to exercise those muscles again and be able to show fans of [the show] I have a little versatility,” he says.
Before landing the role of George, Porter was perhaps best known as fallen quarterback Jason Street on “Friday Night Lights.” He has also had recurring roles in “The Good Wife” and “Caprica.”
The Lincoln, Neb.-born actor/singer can also be heard as the voice of Scott Summers in the animated “X-Men” and “Wolverine” series, as well as a lead character in the video game “X-Men: Destiny.”
His film credits include “10 Years,” “Dear John,” “The Good Guy,” “Speed Racer,” “Prom Night,” ‘Music and Lyrics,” “Descent” and the upcoming “The To Do List.”
