A former prize fighter and the father of one of America's best-loved actors, James Earl Jones, Robert Earl Jones is also an actor who launched his movie career in 1939, playing a small role in Odds Against Tomorrow (1959). Though never achieving anything even near the fame of his son, Jones found himself a comfortable niche in Hollywood and worked steadily though the '60s, '70s, '80s, and the early '90s.
