Though he starred in his first movie when he was 17 years old, actor Thomas Jane spent several years - a few of them homeless - struggling to make it in Hollywood. Following small parts in films like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1992) and "The Crow: City of Angels" (1996), Jane had a breakout performance as a cocaine addict who helps two porn stars try to rob a freebasing drug dealer in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" (1997). Though onscreen for only a few minutes, the actor was memorable enough for audiences to stand up and take notice. From there, he became a prominent face in several high-profile features, including "Deep Blue Sea" (1998) and "Under Suspicion" (2000), both of which helped turn him into a hot commodity. By the time he starred as "The Punisher" (2004), Jane was poised for superstardom, though the comic book-based action flick failed to live up to its hype, leaving his pending celebrity for another day. Nonetheless, he continued appearing in interesting projects - including as the star of the black comedy "Hung" (HBO, 2009-2011) - making Jane an actor always worthy of one's attention.

Bonus Trivia


On his gallery of eccentric roles and his own bout of homelessness, Jane told Premiere magazine in September 1999: "Characters who walk on the other side are reminders that life is bumpy. As much as we try to follow the white lines, sh*t happens, and we can be thrown off into an embankment."


Jane was arrested in the early morning of March 17, 2008 for a DUI. It was reported that the actor was stopped in his Maserati for driving at "an extremely high rate of speed" in Kern County, CA. Jane was sentenced to a year's probation after pleading no contest in to a solo count of driving under the influence.


Dropped out of high school at age 17 when he was offered a role in a Romeo and Juliet-themed film shot in India.


Went through bouts of homelessness after first moving to L.A. to pursue acting.


Was a founding member of The Space Theater in L.A.


"Well, I’m an artist, so I get to live a little bit outside the margins. I don’t watch television, even though I’m on cable right now. I don’t read the newspaper. All the major news, the things that are going on in the world, I get from word of mouth: I get it from friends—sort of an oral tradition in the village, so to speak. I pick up headline stuff on things like Google News but [avoid] any kind of in-depth brainwashing that’s done by CNN or any news show. And I stopped drinking and doing drugs—I shut myself off in that way." - from, December 20, 2011
