Josh Lucas stars in NBC's drama "The Firm" as Mitch McDeere, who as a young associate brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob. After a difficult decade, McDeere and his family now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future - only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere.
Lucas' film career began by accident in 1979 when a small Canadian production was filmed on the tiny coastal South Carolina island, The Isle of Palms, where Lucas and his family lived. Unknown to the filmmakers, eight-year-old Lucas was hiding in the sand dunes watching filming during the climactic scene where teenage lovers engage in a fight. It was during this experience that Lucas decided to pursue a career in film.
