Jones was famously Al Gore’s roommate all four years at Harvard. He received a football scholarship to attend Harvard, and became an All-Ivy Offensive Guard. Jones majored in English Literature, but caught the acting bug playing in a number of school productions, most prominently as the lead in Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. He was too small for the NFL, so he headed to New York to pursue a career in acting.
