Biography


If there is ever an actor with such credibility to play in every single genre, that would be Tommy Lee Jones. From gracefully starting as soap opera actor, it seems improbable that he is one of the familiar faces in military films. His career was indeed prosperous in the particular genre for his face might have been chiseled out of marble, so hard that it's more suitable to be in action movies. As a matter of fact, hard act movies are not always everybody's favorite compared to drama or comedy. Tommy seemed to realize it, saying “If military movies were automatically successful we'd make nothing but military movies. But seriously, patriotism is one thing that all Americans have in common.”

As tough as his feature, his childhood was not that easy too. Tommy who was born on September 15, 1946 in San Saba, Texas came from a family that raised cattle to make a living. They had to face the impact of long drought in early fifties that devastated the farm. At the age of three, Tommy was supposed to have a sibling but the child died while still a baby. His parents, Clyde C. Jones and Lucille Marie were easily divorced and remarried before eventually divorced again. Furthermore, Tommy described his relationship with his father as abusive and very much distant. “He wasn't there for me that much.”
