Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A musician turned character actor, Mickey Jones was once the drummer for Bob Dylan and a member of Kenny Rogers's band, The First Edition, before focusing on acting. He got his start making guest appearances on several TV shows in the '70s, including "Charlie's Angels" and "The Rockford Files." In 1980 he had a recurring part on the "Alice" spinoff, "Flo," with Polly Holliday reprising her signature role. Coincidentally, Jones also appeared in the final two episodes of "Alice" when they aired several years later. Another of his rare recurring roles was on "V," the science fiction program that aired during the 1984-85 season, playing mercenary Chris Farber. Jones also won occasional film work and had a memorable role as a crooked mechanic in the Chevy Chase comedy "Vacation." In the 90s he appeared in the Kevin Costner golf film, "Tin Cup," and had his longest series role on the sitcom "Home Improvement," with 13 appearances over several seasons. He continued acting into the new millennium and appeared as himself in the self-referential Hollywood insider show, "Entourage," in 2007.
