The performance helped him land the role of Caleb Temple on the CBS supernatural drama American Gothic. Black continued an active acting career in such projects as Rob Reiner's Ghosts of Mississippi, Antonio Banderas' directorial debut Crazy in Alabama and The X Files movie.
Black, who graduated from Speake High School in 2001 (where he played football, baseball, basketball and golf), also appeared in Anthony Minghella's Academy Award-nominated Civil War epic Cold Mountain and the independent features Killer Diller and Deepwater. On television, he has appeared in guest-starring roles on Chicago Hope and Disney's movie-of-the-week Flash.
