A Harvard-schooled actor, scriptwriter, director, democrat, charity-ambassador, farmer and a Polo player. This man has got all traits of an all-rounder.
American actor, Tommy Lee Jones, has had a phenomenal career till date. He is not just an actor of extravagant skill, but in fact is an all-rounder who comes with all possible skills of a perfectionist. Jones has been an actor, director, scriptwriter, democrat, farmer, charity ambassador and as if all of this was not enough, he inherited a keen interest in the sport of Polo.

Portraying his inherited interest, Jones satisfies it by spending a small fortune on fields for the sport in Florida, along with a 74-acre equestrian facility in Buenos Aires. Jones is deeply involved in the sport, so much so that when he is in action he fields two teams, inclusive of he himself, his wife, six other players and a total of 50 horses at the least.
