    because ever since I saw him in "The Park is Mine" he's been about my favorite unsung-hero actor. Then came "Nate and Hayes," and then he outright stole "The Fugitive" from Harrison Ford.

    Later on I found out TLJ hails from my part of Texas, and was Al Gore's college roommate. What's not to like!

    •  Tommy Lee Jones is one of those few who can switch (1+ / 0-)

      from lead to compelling supporting player with equal ease.  Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, William H. Macy, Alec Baldwin, and in some cases Bruce Willis and John Travolta can pull this off as well.

      I really liked his recent supporting turn in "Captain America" (watch his interrogation scene with Tobey Jones).

      We won't talk about the dreadful mess that was "Batman Forever"
