Personal Quote:

You just look for good parts and good stories and a good company to work with. Characters with no integrity are just as interesting as characters with lots of integrity. See more »

Trivia:

Was set to star in Everybody's All-American (1988) in 1982, but the studio backed out partly because they did not believe that Jones was leading man material. Jones has said that he found it all amusing. Dennis Quaid got the part when Taylor Hackford took over the project. See more »
