Scott Porter Joins Speed Racer

Scott Porter (TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Prom Night”) has landed a role in Warner Bros. “Speed Racer,” which starts shooting this month in Berlin reports Variety.

Porter will play Rex, the older brother to Speed Racer who fakes his death and returns as Racer X (Matthew Fox). Debates will no doubt rage over who’s the hotter one (Fox gets my vote).

Emile Hirsch plays the title role, John Goodman and Susan Sarandon also star, and the Wachowski brothers have penned and will direct.
