What is Lucas Black of Sling Blade fame doing these days? I liked him in the TV series American Gothic and the film Fast and Furious.

Black, 29, who was born in Decatur, Ala., most recently starred in the film Seven Days in Utopia as a young golf pro with a hot temper who finds himself stranded in a small Texas town where he is befriended by an eccentric rancher (Robert Duvall). An avid golfer, Black has aspirations of going pro. "Hopefully, if I keep getting better, I'd be able to one day qualify [for the PGA tour]," he says. "We'll see." Black lives in Columbia, Mo., with his wife and baby girl.
