LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

JOSH LUCAS (Sam) recently starred opposite Jon Hamm in "Stolen,” released in select theaters in March, and in the independent film "William Vincent,” opposite James Franco, which premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival. Lucas recently finished production on the independent films "Red Dog,” with Rachael Taylor; "A Year in Mooring,” with James Cromwell; "Little Murder,” opposite Terrence Howard; and "Daydream Nation,” with Kat Denning.

While in high school in Gig Harbor, Washington, Lucas joined the school's award-winning drama/debate program, where he won the State Championship in Dramatic Interpretation and competed at the National Championship in 1989. Brief stints in professional theater in Seattle followed, and a move to Los Angeles led to Lucas' role as young George Armstrong Custer in the Steven Spielberg- produced "Class of '61,” and a role in Frank Marshall's "Alive.” Relocating to New York City, Lucas studied acting with Suzanne Shepherd and performed in small theater productions, such as "Shakespeare in the Parking Lot,” before being cast as Judas in Terrence McNally's controversial off-Broadway production of "Corpus Christi.”

He subsequently appeared in the films "You Can Count on Me,” "American Psycho,” the Oscar®-winning "A Beautiful Mind” and the box-office hit "Sweet Home Alabama.” His additional film work includes Ang Lee's "Hulk,” David Gordon Green's "Undertow,” "Secondhand Lions,” "Wonderland,” Lasse Hallstrom's "An Unfinished Life” and "Poseidon.” In 2005, he gained nearly 40 pounds to play legendary basketball coach Don Haskins in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Glory Road.” He followed this with his Broadway debut in Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie.”

Lucas's first producing project was Boaz Yakin's "Death in Love,” in 2009.

Always fascinated by documentaries, Lucas worked with Ken Burns in recent years on "The War,” "The National Parks: America's Best Idea” and the upcoming "Prohibition.” He was involved in the Oscar®-nominated documentary "Operation Homecoming” and appeared in the National Board of Review Award winner "Trumbo.” He also appeared in the Los Angeles Film Festival's award winner "Resolved” and Barry Levinson's documentary, "PoliWood.”

Lucas' additional theater credits include the award-winning off-Broadway production of Spalding Gray's "Stories Left to Tell.”
