    Tommy Lee Jones (1946- ) is an American actor. He was little known until his big breaks in 1990s, where he scored roles in three blockbuster films: The Fugitive, Batman Forever, and Men in Black. He fell off the radar for a few years until his resurgence with No Country for Old Men.

    He tends to play snarky, grumpy, and very Badass characters.

    He was also Al Gore's roommate at Harvard. Figure that one out. And in case you've managed to wrap your head around that, according to author Erich Segal (who attended Harvard at the same time), the hero of his novel Love Story was based on a fusion of the two of them.

    "What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area."

      • Also currently starring as the demotivator poster boy for the implied facepalm (No Country for Old Men), where the idea is so ridiculous that a full and proper facepalm is unnecessary.
    • Younger Than They Look: Has always looked between ten to fifteen years older than he actually is, though nowadays he's starting to look his age. This actually allowed him to be cast in Space Cowboys with Clint Eastwood; despite ranging from 12-20 years younger than his three castmates, his character was portrayed in the same age bracket as them.
      • Although he has aged very little in the last few years. He is now[when?] in his mid sixties and can pass for his fifties.
