Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

One of the toughest of England's "hard men" of football, Vinnie Jones parlayed his notoriety as a talented if ruthless player for championship teams into a career as a supporting actor and occasional lead in films on both sides of the Atlantic. Jones' movie roles rarely asked him to do more than provide a physically imposing presence, but from time to time - most notably in Guy Richie's "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998) - he displayed a knack for comic delivery as well. He also successfully parodied his two-fisted soccer persona in a string of popular television ads in England, making him a bit of public treasure in his homeland.
