Scott Porter: A Big Blake Lewis Fan

by at . Comments

Hunky Friday Night Lights star Scott Porter admits he was a little jealous this year. Not of his co-stars' successes on the football field, but of American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis.

It's a confession that certainly comes as a surprise to some, but Porter, in fact, spent seven years as a professional beat-boxer before landing the role of Jason Street on the NBC football drama.

"He had some strong points and some weak points. I liked watching him, though. He's pretty talented," says Scott Porter of Blake Lewis' skills, which garnered him more votes than all but Jordin Sparks on Idol's sixth season.

"When I saw him perform with Doug E. Fresh, I have to tell you," Porter said, "I was a little jealous. But anything that can bring a little notoriety to beatboxing, I really enjoy."

Friday Night Lights Quotes

Please don't sleep with my sister Tim, that's like incest.


We will all at some time in our lives, fall. Life is so very fragile, we are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives, fall, we will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts, that what we have is special, that it can be taken from us, and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.
