Despite wading through a significant amount of dreck at the beginning of his career, actor Tommy Lee Jones emerged to become one of the most admired and respected film stars of his generation. An inauspicious start on the daytime soap "One Life to Live" (ABC, 1967-2012) eventually led to leading roles in made-for-television movies like "The Amazing Howard Hughes" (CBS, 1977) and "The Executioner's Song" (NBC, 1982) that clearly demonstrated his acting prowess. An Emmy award win for the miniseries "Lonesome Dove" (CBS, 1989) raised his fortunes permanently, leading to defining film roles in "JFK" (1991), "The Fugitive" (1993) and "Men in Black" (1997). Though he settled into a rut playing the grizzled veteran looking for redemption in below the radar fare like "The Hunted" (2003) and "The Missing" (2005), Jones found himself the talk of Oscar buzz once again with empathetic performances in "No Country For Old Men" (2007) and "In the Valley of Elah" (2007), both of which affirmed his status as an actor able to deliver some of the most powerful and nuanced performances of recent memory.
