Question: What was the name of the series in which Gary Cole played the part of Sheriff Lucas Buck in a small-town setting. (I think his part was that of the Devil.) — Mark

Televisionary: The creepfest of which you speak is CBS's American Gothic, which was created by Shaun Cassidy (The Hardy Boys Mysteries) and which had a short stint on CBS from the fall of '95 through January of the next year. As you say, Cole (Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law) played evil Lucas Buck, sheriff of sleepy Trinity, S.C. The cast of the supernatural series, which garnered cult status over its brief lifespan, included young Lucas Black, whom you may have caught in some of his big-screen appearances (Sling Blade, Friday Night Lights).
