Biography

Though it took him almost a decade to truly get his career going, actor Josh Lucas has starred in a number of high-profile movies often in supporting roles. After appearing as one of many doomed rugby team members in the survival drama "Alive" (1993), Lucas spent a year in Australia on the show "Snowy River: The McGregor Saga" (Family Channel, 1993-96) before returning to America to land roles in "American Psycho" (2000), "You Can Count on Me" (2000), "The Deep End" (2001) and "Session 9" (2001). His career earned a significant boost with a prominent role in "A Beautiful Mind" (2001), which led to a leading role opposite Reese Witherspoon in "Sweet Home Alabama" (2002). From there, Lucas co-starred in highly anticipated features like "Wonderland" (2003), "Hulk" (2003) and "Poseidon" (2006), only to step back from big-budget blockbusters to produce and star in small, more personal projects. He later reemerged onto the public radar with turns in "Life as We Know It" (2011), "The Lincoln Lawyer" (2011) and Clint Eastwood's acclaimed biopic "J. Edgar" (2011). Despite not establishing himself as a major leading man, Lucas remained a fine and prolific character actor capable of earning the audience's sympathies or condemnation with equal skill.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I get hungry to work pretty quickly. For me it's wonderful just to have something in the future to think about, it's like the early stage of a relationship when you're like, 'Oooh, I'm falling in love again.'" – Lucas to Interview Magazine, August 2005
