UPDATED: What the Hell Happened to Jeffrey Jones?


https://lebeauleblog.com/2018/08/23/updated-what-the-hell-happened-to-jeffrey-jones/

Jeffrey Jones is an actor most renowned for his roles playing the strange, generally unlikable comic foils to the audience’s hero. Jones is more than that, though. He is a purist who greatly values acting and takes the craft very seriously. He spent years honing his ability in acting schools, and many more in theater, including Broadway. When he imported that to the silver screen, it panned out well. Recently though, things haven’t been going so hot for Jones. Roles have dried up; he has been arrested on numerous occasions, the jailing centering around his status as a sex offender.

What the hell happened?

Did you read your last sentence?

In a weird way he's lucky...had he not fallen from grace previously he almost definitely would have been called out in the me too movement. So at least he got his hell out of the way years ago and is largely forgotten about today.

Paul Reubens is still remembered for child pornography..

reply

Not really...the controversy faded quickly and no felony charges were brought against him and his career is still intact (he had a decent resurgence after that actually). Think more people remember him being busted for masturbating in a movie theater than that (from which he also rebounded).

TMC-4 was just quoting an article. Nothing more, nothing less.

Jones is still a registered Sex Offender according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's website, even though he resides in California.

Regardless, the guy was hilarious as the principal in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986).

Come on now he's the comeback kid... On second thought he should probably drop that title immediatly considering what he has already been convicted of.

Short And To The Point: This massive media conglomerate owns a pay cable channel. They are going to regret hiring this once B+ list mostly movie actor for his first role in years. He has been partnering with a photographer in LA to shoot child porn. So, maybe cast someone else other than the person with the history of doing exactly what he is doing now.

That "Entertainment Lawyer" creep is THE biggest liar on the internet, just so you know.

reply

He's had some roles since then.

reply

True, but they're pretty much few and far in-between. Jeffrey Jones is a registered sex offender and was exposed to be a pedophile. He's career in Hollywood is for all intents and purposes, over. Jeffrey Jones was basically a smaller-scale version of what Kevin Spacey is now. He's way too radioactive to take a chance on unless you're ready to face a huge wave of negative publicity.
