Scott Porter: A Big Blake Lewis Fan

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."
