‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Alum Lucas Black Hypes New Film About ‘Importance of Being a Father’

by Quentin Blount

We are getting more and more excited about Lucas Black’s new film. And the NCIS: New Orleans alum hasn’t been shy about hyping it up on social media.

There’s a good chance that you know who Lucas Black is by now. Most of us recognize him thanks to his role on the CBS military drama, NCIS: New Orleans. A spin-off of the original NCIS series, Black starred on the show from 2014-2019 where he portrayed Special Agent Christopher LaSalle. If not there, perhaps you know Lucas Black from his appearances in other movies and television shows. He has been in things like American Gothic, Sling Blade, Flash, Crazy in Alabama, All the Pretty Horses, Friday Night Lights, Jarhead, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Get Low, Legion, and Seven Days in Utopia.

As you can tell by the list above, Black has been a successful actor for quite some time now. And it doesn’t look like he will be done anytime soon — the 39-year-old is actually in the middle of shooting a new movie as we speak. The former NCIS: New Orleans star took to social media on Saturday afternoon to hype up his new project.

“If you are looking for a story that is entertaining and empowers the nuclear family, this is it,” Black captioned the clip. “This story will encourage and uplift fathers and their children. It is hard to find stories like this one. Most stories out there make fun of fathers and undermine their leadership role in the family. But this film highlights the importance of a father being present in their children’s life.”

Fans Can’t Wait to See Former ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Star in New Role

When it comes to being a manly man, it appears as though Lucas Black is the guy for the job. Based on everything we’ve seen so far, it looks like that’s the kind of role he will be playing in the upcoming movie. And fans of his are here for it.

“About time a story like this is told,” one fan explained. “I am so tired of the incompetent male/father movies. It is not mentioned enough about how equally important it is to have a positive male/masculine role model in their lives.”

“I love how you always seem positive, even in extreme conditions!” another fan said. “Come November 2022 our family will be in theaters watching this film!! Stay safe and warm while filming. Wasn’t sure if the wrapped hand was an actual injury or just a prop! Shaking snow on someone…you have a mischievous side!”

“Since you were a wee lad I’ve thought you are one of America’s unsung brilliant actors. One of a kind and one of a generation! Can’t wait for this movie,” a third follower gushed.
