Tommy Lee Jones is one of the quietly underrated actors of his generation. Jones was born in Texas, and his Southern drawl is part of his appeal in many of the movies that he is featured in. I don’t think there are many actors that can play a cop or detective better than Jones, however saying so does not do his versatility justice. He can play any role.
Let’s take a look at some of the greatest Tommy Lee Jones films of his long career.
One movie that has to be on any logical list of Tommy Lee Jones’ best films is The Fugitive. After all, this was a film that won Jones an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. It has been long enough since The Fugitive came out to call this film a classic.
Also starring Tommy Lee Jones and highly recognized by the Academy was No Country For Old Men. While Jones was as good as he could be in this film, the true star of this movie was Javier Bardem, who played one of the greatest cinematic villains in recent memory. Javier Bardem was a shoe in for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
One film that never got the love I felt it deserved was Volcano. I think people just don’t like disaster films in general, or maybe it was because this film came out around a similar time as other films like Deep Impact and Armageddon. Nonetheless, I really liked this movie.
To not include either Men In Black or Men In Black 2 on this list would just be plain crazy. I loved both these films and I cannot wait to see America’s two favorite alien crime fighters reunited in Men In Black 3. I believe this film is slated to come out in late 2011.
Natural Born Killers is the last film I will include in my top five Tommy Lee Jones. In this movie, Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis star a duo of serial killers who are on the run, while holding up convenience stores along the way. It took me a while to see this movie (I am not quite sure why), but I am sure glad I finally got to see it. This is easily one of my favorite movies from director Oliver Stone.
It is clear after going through Tommy Lee Jones’ film catalog that he has had quite the fair share of excellent movies.
