Now fans will get to see Porter on the big screen. Coming to theaters Feb. 10, Porter stars as a Super Bowl half-time show choreographer opposite Oscar winners Sally Field, Rita Moreno and Jane Fonda and Tony winner Lilly Tomlin in the feel-good comedy 80 For Brady, a comic homage to NFL quarterback Tom Brady.
The movie, based on a true story, follows four best friends, played by Field, Moreno, Fonda and Tomlin, on a trip to watch their hero, Brady, play in the 2017 Super Bowl.
Porter rocketed to superstardom when he originated the role of Lola in the Tony winning Broadway musical Kinky Boots just over 10 years ago.
