    The Versatile & Distinguished Actor James Earl Jones

    James Earl Jones is considered as one of the most versatile and distinguished actors of American cinema who worked for 50 long years in the industry leaving a legacy behind him for others to follow. He was born on January 17, 1931 and debuted in Broadway acting in 1957.

    As an acting genius awards came naturally on his way from time to time such as Golden Globe Award, Tony Award, Academy Award and Emmy Awards trice to name a few. To your surprise Jones had stammering problem that lasted for several years in his childhood and was a US Army Ranger by profession in the initial years of his career while the Korean War was underway.

    Jones’s acting break can be traced back even before taking up the army job while he was actually waiting for the orders. He then used to lend his hand as a part-time stage crew at Ramsdell Theatre in Michigan.
