Actors Who Can Be Good or Bad: Tommy Lee Jones

Are you a fan of Tommy Lee Jones?  Many people know him for his comedic role in “Men in Black (1997). He co-starred with Will Smith and they were a team tasked with the responsibility of ridding of the world of bad aliens.  He was an adorable good guy.

By contrast, Mr. Jones can also be a really scary bad guy.  In the movie “The Executioner’s Song”, he was a heartless cold-blooded killer! Ever saw this movie? Remember that scene where he robbed the gas station and what he did to the gas station attendant?  He was a very convincing bad guy.  So convincing that he earned an Emmy Award.

There are some actors who, in my opinion, can only play good guys.  Tommy Lee Jones can be either good or bad.  But I prefer him as a good guy.  I really liked him in The Fugitive” (1993) with Harrison Ford and the sequel, U.S. Marshals” (1998), where he was paired with Wesley Snipes.  I also liked him as the villain Two-Face, in Batman Forever (1995).
