Lake Highlands’ latest claim to fame is its connection to the new movie by Billy Bob Thornton ("Slingblade") and Susan Sarandon ("Thelma and Louise"), entitled "Mr. Woodcock." Writer Michael Carnes graduated from Lake Highlands High in 1988, according to a recent article in The Dallas Morning News, and before that, he attended Forest Meadow Junior High. In the movie, Mr. Woodcock is a gym teacher at a school called Forest Meadow in a town called Forest Meadow. If the current Forest Meadow teachers know who the character is based on, they aren’t telling.
