Josh Lucas

Born June 20, 1971, in Little Rock, Ark., Josh Lucas moved more than 12 times while he was growing up -- and then he moved again, straight to Los Angeles, when he graduated from high school. Inspired to pursue a career in acting after winning two state drama titles, Lucas continued his winning streak with guest roles on TV shows such as "True Colors" in the early '90s.

After making his feature film debut in 1993's Alive, Lucas labored for almost a decade in pictures such as Miracle at Oxford, American Psycho and The Deep End before achieving true stardom with breakthrough roles in Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind (2001) and Sweet Home Alabama (in which he played Reese Witherspoon's husband).

Since then, Lucas has continued to work steadily in films such as Ang Lee's Hulk (2003), Wonderland, Glory Road and the star-studded disaster remake Poseidon (2006).
