Tommy Lee Jones Takes on Every Role in ‘The Homesman’

ALT Yes, Tommy Lee Jones will be taking on “every role” in the newly developing picture The Homesman. But if you have begun imagining the celebrated thespian in a The Klumps scenario, you will be quite relieved (or disappointed) to realize that he is not playing multiple characters. In addition to starring, Jones will be writing, directing and producing the film.

The Homesman will mark TLJ’s second stint at directing a feature film, the first being 2005’s critically acclaimed The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. The veteran actor’s newest project will star him as a pioneer-era renegade (just wait, there’s a curve ball coming) who escorts a squad of mentally insane women (and there it is) from Nebraska to Iowa.

The reasons of this journey and strange partnership are as of yet unknown. But if Tommy Lee Jones tells you that leading a group of psychotic young ladies on trek of reverse Manifest Destiny is a good idea, you don’t argue. There is also no word on whether or not Josh Brolin will play an younger incarnation of Jones’ character, but it’s safe to assume that he will. In every single movie for the rest of each man’s career.

And to see Tommy Lee Jones actually take on every role in a movie, keep watch for Men in Black IV: Christmas with the K’s.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
