Richard T Jones
The son of professional baseball player Clarence Jones, Richard T Jones decided to pursue acting after starring in a college production of "A Raisin in the Sun. " The tall, striking-looking actor made his feature debut as Ike Turner Jr. in "What's Love Got to Do With It?" (1993) and provided able support in films like "Renaissance Man" (1994), as a former football star, "The Trigger Effect" (1996), as a somewhat menacing figure, and "Event Horizon" (1997), as an emergency technician. Jones also helped Morgan Freeman track down a serial killer in "Kiss the Girls" (1997). On TV, Jones acted in several TV-movies, including the failed pilot for "Hollywood Confidential" (UPN, 1997), and appeared as a guest on "NYPD Blue" and "Dangerous Minds" (both ABC). He joined the regular cast of the CBS police drama "Brooklyn South" (1997-98) shortly after its premiere and soon found his character engaged in a triangular romance involving fellow officer (Klea Scott and Titus Welliver).
