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
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.
Tommy Lee Jones is an Oscar nominee for his outstanding supporting performance in 'Lincoln' (too bad his hair piece wasn't eligible). So in today's Way Back When, we bring you a look at the early career of this veteran actor.
Following his Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated role in 'Lincoln,' Tommy Lee Jones is bringing back the "American swagger" in the first 'Emperor' trailer.
At the 2013 Golden Globes, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig presented the award for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy and were intent on bringing some of their own laughs to the show. Not content to read the scripted banter off the TelePrompTer, the two came up with their own bit that left everyone cracking up ... except Tommy Lee Jones, that is.
Although it doesn't open in wide release until next week, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' has already started gaining traction as a major Oscar contender, with Daniel Day-Lewis' performance as the sixteenth President of the United States being one of the most talked about roles of the year. However, Day-Lewis is supported by one of the deepest character actor benches in recent memory and two new clips from the film give us a taste of the film's supporting cast.
If you're still in the political mood after last night, we have a few presidential treats for you in the form of three clips from Steven Speilberg's 'Lincoln.' Steven Spielberg's latest is opening in limited release this week, but you can preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones' acting chops right now!
It would appear as though the 2013 awards season already has a major player in 'The Homesman,' and the picture hasn't even begun shooting yet. The film, set to be written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones (who also plans to star), is an American frontier drama with a handful of meaty roles. Today, we may know who will occupy a couple of those meaty roles: Oscar-winners Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank. (Jones won an Oscar too, so we're talking lots of potential "Academy Award Winner..." titles on 'The Homesman's' poster.)
Director Peter Webber's 'Emperor' had its premiere last night at the Toronto International Film Festival and today, it was announced that Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate are teaming up distribute the film. Distribution was always in this movie's future: anything starring Tommy Lee Jones as General Douglas MacArthur isn't going to sit on a shelf. If you're curious what that performance looks like, you're in luck: the first clip from the film has made its way online.
