After displaying exceptional range, diversity and intensity for more than a decade,
LUCAS (Dylan Johns) continues his emergence as one of Hollywood's most engaging talents.
Whether in small parts in independent films or lead roles in Hollywood blockbusters, Lucas has
maintained presence both on the stage and in film.
Lucas most recently starred in the film Glory Road. He portrayed legendary NCAA
basketball coach, Don Haskins, who won the 1966 Final Four championship with an all-African
American starting line up. The film was released on January 13, 2006 and Lucas' performance
garnered rave reviews.
This past summer Lucas starred on Broadway in the revival of Tennessee Williams' The
Glass Menagerie, opposite Jessica Lange, Christian Slater and Sarah Paulson. He played the
pivotal role of the Gentleman Caller in this famous play directed by David Leveaux.
In 2005, he starred in the action film Stealth, opposite Jamie Foxx, Jessica Biel and Sam
Shepard. Lucas also appeared opposite Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez and Morgan Freeman in
An Unfinished Life, which was released in September.
Two of his most recent roles demonstrate the range of Lucas' talent. Opposite
Christopher Walken, he was seen as a mild-mannered single father in the Warner Independent
film Around the Bend. In stark contrast, he was also seen as the dangerous escaped convict who
terrorized his estranged family in the Terrence Malick- produced, David Gordon Green-directed
Undertow. Both films were released to substantial critical acclaim. Around the Bend won Grand
Jury Prizes at both the Montreal and San Diego film festivals.
In 2003, Lucas co-starred opposite Val Kilmer in the controversial crime thriller
Wonderland, which tells the true story of the events that led to the infamous Wonderland
Murders in Los Angeles in July, 1981, as well as an account of the police investigation. Lucas
played the pivotal role of Ron Launius, the leader of the gang of drug lords that was viciously
murdered. In that same year, Lucas also starred opposite Jennifer Connelly in Ang Lee's Hulk.
In the summer of 2002, Lucas starred in Andy Tennant's box office smash Sweet Home
Alabama, opposite Reese Whitherspoon. He also co-starred that year in the Oscar- winning Ron
Howard and Jonathan Glazer film, A Beautiful Mind.
Lucas' additional film credits include The Deep End, American Psycho, Session 9 and the
Academy Award-nominated You Can Count On Me. His film debut was in Alive (1993),
directed by Frank Marshall. His theater credits include Corpus Christi at the Manhattan Theatre
Club, What Didn't Happen by Chris Shinn at the Mark Taper Forum and The Picture of Dorian
Grey at the Los Angeles Theatre Club.
Lucas currently resides in New York City.
