Lucas Black
Lucas who lived in Speake, prefered to live in Alabama than Hollywood when he was younger.
He has many fans from all over the world. I know this because I get email telling me how much they like him.
I had the pleasure of meeting him and he is a very nice, polite young fellow. ;-)

BLACK GETS FAST AND FURIOUS WITH BOW WOW.

COLD MOUNTAIN star LUCAS BLACK replaces PAUL WALKER in the third FAST AND THE FURIOUS movie. Black teams up with rapper BOW WOW in FAST AND THE FURIOUS TOKYO DRIFT, which was shot on location in Europe and Japan. Walker, who starred in the first two Fast And The Furious movies decided not to sign up for a second sequel.

The Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift

This I gotta see!!
I did! Lucas was really cool in this movie!
I loved the "surprise cameo" at the end! ;-)

Lucas as quoted in the Huntsville Times: "I never had the luxury of an extra set of tires to put on a vehicle like I did out there, Universal (Studios) had plenty of cars and gas and tires - it didn't matter. "IMDB.com reports that more than 100 cars were destroyed/wrecked during the filming of "Fast and Furious III: Tokyo Drift." "It was a fun role, that's for sure," the 23-year-old Black said. "We all had a good time. I got to sit behind the wheel of all those guy cars and race them, whenever."We had wide-open spaces and didn't have to worry about the law or cops or nothing. We were burning rubber all day." Unquote.
