Biography

A chameleon-like performer with a knack for disappearing completely into his roles, Toby Jones was an award-winning actor and playwright who parlayed his success on the London stage into an acclaimed string of roles in films and television on both sides of the Atlantic. A bit and supporting player in U.K. and European features since the early 1990s, he hit his stride in 2002 with an Olivier Award-winning turn in the West End comedy "The Play What I Wrote." The show's popularity led to more visible roles in features and television, including "Finding Neverland" (2004) and "Elizabeth I" (2005). He gained his strongest notices and widest exposure for his portrayal of author Truman Capote in "Infamous" (2005), which was largely overshadowed by Philip Seymour Hoffman's Oscar-winning take that same year in "Capote" (2005). Regardless of the snub, Jones' commitment to his characters had an effect on critics and producers alike, and he was soon a regular in both American and Continental productions, including "The Painted Veil" (2006) and Frank Darabont's "The Mist" (2006). He ably portrayed figures of historical importance in based-on-fact dramas like "Frost/Nixon" (2008) and the George Bush biopic "W" (2008), in addition to lending his colorful characterizations to entertainments like "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011) and "The Hunger Games" (2012). A true actor's actor with the ability to completely transform himself to suit the needs of a character, Jones remained one of the more respected and sought after performers in film.
