Growing up, he spent his time traveling throughout the South with his parents and three younger siblings; by the age of 13, he had lived in close to 30 different places. Eventually, the family settled in Gig Harbor, Washington, where Lucas attended Kopachuck Middle School and Gig Harbor High School.
Following his graduation from high school in 1989, Lucas moved to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. He made his debut on television in 1990, appearing in episodes of "True Colors" and "Life Goes On." The following year, Lucas was in episodes of the teen sitcom "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" and the crime series "Jake and the Fatman," and also appeared in the horror television film "Child of Darkness, Child of Light."
Lucas made his feature film debut in 1993 with a role in the biographical survival drama "Alive." The same year, he had a small part in the adventure dramedy "Father Hood." Lucas had his first starring role in the 1996 British rowing film "True Blue," in which he played a Navy rower competing to help Oxford win its annual boat race against rival Cambridge. This was followed by the comedy "The Definite Maybe," the drama "Harvest," and the romantic film "Restless." Lucas subsequently had his biggest year yet in 2000, appearing in four films: "You Can Count on Me," "The Dancer," "The Weight of Water," and "American Psycho." He had another big year in 2001 with another four films, including the thriller "The Deep End" and the Best Picture Oscar winner "A Beautiful Mind." Following this, Lucas appeared in the independent drama "Coastlines," and had one of his greatest commercial successes with the romantic comedy "Sweet Home Alabama," in which he starred opposite Reese Witherspoon.
After the box office success of "Sweet Home Alabama," Lucas appeared in the 2003 films "Hulk," "Secondhand Lions," and "Wonderland." He went on to land a number of leading roles over the subsequent years, including in "Undertow," "Around the Bend," "Stealth," "Poseidon," and "Glory Road," in the lattermost of which he portrayed basketball coach Don Haskins. Lucas also had leading roles in "Tell-Tale" and "Stolen," and supporting roles in "An Unfinished Life," "Management," and "Peacock."

Lucas had his first major role on the small screen in the Steven Spielberg-produced 1993 television film "Class of '61," in which he portrayed George Armstrong Custer during the breakout of the American Civil War. His next main role came in 1994, when he began playing Luke McGregor in the first season of the Australian adventure series "Snowy River: The McGregor Saga." Lucas remained on the show through the beginning of the second season, when his homesickness for the United States led to his departure. His next role was a recurring part on the crime drama series "Cracker" in 1999.
In 2005, Lucas was part of the cast of the award-winning HBO miniseries "Empire Falls." Later, in 2012, he played the main role of lawyer Mitch McDeere on the legal thriller series "The Firm," a sequel to the eponymous John Grisham novel and its 1993 film adaptation. Ultimately, the series was canceled after just one season. Two years later, in 2014, Lucas began another main role on the police procedural "The Mysteries of Laura." On the show, he played Captain Jake Broderick, the former husband of Debra Messing's title character. The series ran for two seasons before it was canceled in 2016.
