Vintage Celebrity Saturday

This weeks' vintage celebrity is a pretty awesome dude. He's been in all sorts of movies...drama, action, comedy, indi...all of it.

Can you guess who this hunk of a man is?

  • Was born September 15, 1946 in San Saba, TX.
  • Never took an acting class
  • He and Al Gore were roommates while the two were students at Harvard University. The two remain close friends.
  • played offensive guard in the famous 29-29 Harvard-Yale football game of '68 known as "The Tie."
  • He received a B.A. in English literature and graduated cum laude from Harvard in 1969.
  • Part time cattle rancher, owns 3,000-acre ranch near San Antonio, TX.
  • Plays polo and raises polo ponies. His team won the U.S. Polo Association's Western Challenge Cup in 1993. Invites the Harvard's best polo players to his ranch to practice each fall.
  • Speaks Spanish fluently.
  • Owns the movie rights to Cormac McCarthy's controversial novel "Blood Meridian," which many consider unfilmable.
  • An eighth-generation Texan, he has a Cherokee Native American grandparent, and is mostly of Welsh ancestry.
  • In Batman Forever (1995), his character of Two-Face flips a coin to see if his victims should live or die, where twelve years later he plays a sheriff in No Country For Old Men (2007), who chases an assassin that kills random victims by asking them to call in a coin toss.

Does he look familiar? He should because he looks exactly the same, except now he has wrinkles.

It's Tommy Lee Jones
