With no fewer than four Oscar nods to his name, including one victory, Tommy Lee Jones is one of the most well-respected actors of his generation. However, he just so happens to be one of the most fearsome, too. Indeed, the Hollywood veteran has become just as renowned for his short temper as his considerable talents.

Jones first shot to fame in the soap opera world playing Dr. Mark Toland in One Life to Live, but he soon moved on to bigger and better things. His box office smashes include Men in Black, Under Siege and Jason Bourne. He’s also appeared in critical hits such as No Country for Old Men, Lincoln and JFK and in 1994 won the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his turn in The Fugitive.
