Veteran actor and beloved curmudgeon Tommy Lee Jones has occasionally raised a few eyebrows over the course of his career with roles that defy his Quite Serious persona (Batman Forever, for example) and prove that he’s no different from any other working actor (he likes paychecks, for example). As it turns out, we were robbed of seeing Jones tackle another surprising role, but what we were given in exchange is so much better.

‘Jason Bourne’ Review: Matt Damon Is Back, But Did We Need Another Bourne Movie?

Jason Bourne has always had one mission: to find out who he is. It’s a mystery that made him one of the most enthralling action movie characters. He didn’t have the suave, ostentatiousness of James Bond, nor did he rely on teamwork or gadgets like Ethan Hunt; he was quick, efficient and acted on intuition and impulse alone, and all without having a clue what his real name was. He was a human killing machine who wouldn’t stop until he uncovered the truth, and by the end of Paul Greengrass’ 2007 ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, Matt Damon’s spy finally got answers. But nearly 10 years later, Bourne still has questions.

‘Mechanic: Resurrection’ Trailer: What the Hell, Jason Statham Doesn’t Fix a Single Car in This Trailer

The prototypical Jason Statham action hero is a man who can do just about anything — except shave properly. He seems to have trouble keeping his stubble under control. Other than that, though, he’s just about perfect.

The ‘Criminal’ Trailer Is Like ‘Face-Off’ Without Any of the Fun

There are a lot of goofball movie ideas in Hollywood. Some, like a bus that will explode if it doesn’t stay above 50mph, become enjoyable movies like Speed. Others, like a team of oil drillers sent by NASA to detonate a nuclear bomb on an asteroid headed for Earth, become Armageddon. It’s a crap shoot. With that, we bring you the trailer for Criminal, a movie about a dangerous death-row inmate implanted with the brain of a top CIA operative to complete his final mission. It’s like Face-Off, but with brains. Brain-Off.

It should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is planning to resurrect The Fugitive in some capacity. After all, a major film studio returning to the well of the comfortably familiar for a remake or a reboot (or a reboot of a remake) is pretty par for the course these days. What makes this news ever-so-slightly interesting is the suggestion that this may be a continuation of some kind, featuring the same characters that Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones played in the iconic 1993 film.

It's been a few years since the release of Jason Statham's 'The Mechanic,' the remake of the 1972 film starring Charles Bronson, and now the action flick is getting a sequel and Statham is getting some fresh co-stars: Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Alba, and Michelle Yeoh have joined the cast of 'Mechanic: Resurrection.' And although production has already begun, it'll be a while before you see this one -- 2016 to be exact.

Tommy Lee Jones Hated Jim Carrey While Filming 'Batman Forever'

Comic book fans surely remember the '90s. It was a strange time to be a superhero fan. A dark time. A time when Joel Schumacher was directing Batman movies and baffling the entire world. A decade before Christopher Nolan made 'Batman Begins,' Schumacher made 'Batman Forever,' which featured Jim Carrey as The Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face. No one remembers either performance fondly, but it turns out that there's some pretty interesting stories regarding their casting. It turns out that Jones did not like Carrey. Like, at all.

Released in 1997, 'Men in Black' paired up mega-star Will Smith with legendary actor Tommy Lee Jones as two agents who work for a secret organization that keeps tabs on alien life forms. Featuring outstanding practical effects, the hilarious sci-fi comedy (which was also based on a comic book) was a massive hit, and went on to spawn two sequels. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved modern classic and see what they're up to now.
