Josh Lucas began his career when he was 19, having moved to Hollywood after his high school graduation. He appeared as a guest star on several TV sitcoms in his early twenties, including Fox's "True Colors" the family drama "Life Goes On" and CBS's private-eye show "Jake and the Fatman."
Other projects included the horror-thriller "Child of Darkness," "Child of Light," an adaptation of James Patterson's novel "Virgin." Lucas followed this appearance by working with executive producer Steven Spielberg and then-unknown actor Clive Owen in the TV-movie "Class of '61," which follows the stories of a group of West Point cadets in 1861 as the Civil War breaks out.
Soon afterward, he made his feature film debut in Frank Marshall's "Alive" about a group of Uruguayan rugby players who, after crashing in the Andes mountains, resort to cannibalism to stay alive. After a brief appearance in the Patrick Swayze comedy "Father Hood," Lucas relocated to Australia to play the hotheaded American cousin Luke McGregor opposite Andrew Clarke and Guy Pearce in the first season of the family western "Snowy River: The McGregor Saga." Lucas appeared in all thirteen episodes of the first season but claimed in a later interview that despite the friendly environment, he was homesick for the United States, and his character was killed off in the second episode of season 2. Upon returning to the States, he was still receiving offers as high school/college boyfriends and felt he was not getting the age-appropriate roles he sought. Shortly thereafter, he departed Hollywood and moved to New York City, where he studied privately with various acting coaches.
The second part of his career began with a lead role in the British rowing film "True Blue." He followed that with relatively small roles in the dramas "Minotaur" and "Harvest." He took his first stab at comedy in "The Definite Maybe," in which he played a recent college graduate who gets fired from his job and schemes with an old friend to purchase a house in the Hamptons.
Lucas gained mainstream exposure after his roles in "Sweet Home Alabama," "A Beautiful Mind" and as Glenn Talbot in "Hulk." He later gained success in leading roles in movies such as "Glory Road," "Poseidon" and "Stealth."
In February 2010, he was cast in the Anders Anderson thriller "Stolen" the single father of a mentally challenged boy, starring alongside Rhona Mitra and Jon Hamm; the film had a limited theatrical release in March 2010. Lucas also co-stars in the 2010 film "Shadows and Lies" alongside James Franco and Julianne Nicholson. He also starred in the NBC television show "The Firm," which takes place ten years after the John Grisham novel it is based on. The show lasted one season.
He returns to television opposite Debra Messing in the drama "Mysteries of Laura" on NBC.
Lucas is also an owner and promoter of the company Filthy Food with friends Marc and Daniel Singer.
