Biography CLOSE THE FULL 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).

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).
