JOSH LUCAS (Charles Lindbergh) recently played a state prosecutor opposite Matthew McConaughey in "The Lincoln Lawyer.” He also starred in the independent features "Red Dog”; "A Year in Mooring,” with James Cromwell, which Lucas also produced; and "Little Murder,” alongside Terrence Howard. Up next are "Big Sur,” opposite Kate Bosworth, based on the Jack Kerouac novel, and "Medallion,” an actioner from Simon West.

In 2010, he played the role of Sam, alongside Katherine Heigl, in Greg Berlanti's "Life as we Know It,” and starred in several independent features, including "Daydream Nation,” opposite Kat Dennings, which premiered at the 2010 Toronto film festival; "Stolen,” with Jon Hamm; and "William Vincent,” opposite James Franco, which premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.

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 Hallström'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 "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.”
