Scott Porter Signs On for a "Speed Racer" Role

by | June 5, 2007 | Comments

Fans of TV’s "Friday Night Lights" may be familiar with actor Scott Porter. Movie fans will see him in next year’s "Speed Racer" adaptation.

His only other film role to date was in "Music and Lyrics," but Scott Porter has been chosen to play the older brother of the title character (Emile Hirsch). Apparently his character disappears only to return years later as the villainous Racer X — who is being played by Matthew Fox.

Production on the Wachowski’s family-friendly racing epic gets underway in Germany this month. Obviously the flick’s being targeted for a Summer ’08 release.
