Default Good hop (and amount) to use in a porter with cinnamon?

Almost have a recipe formulated for a cinnamon porter, but I'm still undecided about the hops. I was thinking either EKG or Fuggles, although someone also suggested Magnum. I don't want the hops to overpower, just to balance the malt flavors...

Assuming you are just adding bittering hops the variety really doesn't matter too much. Pretty much anything besides the big agressive American hops (like chinook) would be a fine choice.
