Richard T. Jones Wiki- Age, Childhood, and Education
Born Richard Timothy Jones on the 16th January 1972, in Kobe, Japan, the son of African-American parents, Clarence Jones, a professional baseball player and hitting instructor for the Cleveland Indians, and Lorene, a computer analyst. He grew up in Carson, California USA, the younger child of the family as he has an older brother who is a football coach, Clarence Jones, Jr.
His parents are now divorced, but there’s no reliable information when they separated. Richard went to Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance, California, and after matriculation, enrolled at Tuskegee University. While at university he started attending acting classes for fun, and one of his professors recognized his talent and suggested that Richard start auditioning for plays. He even threatened him with lower grades, though jokingly, if he didn’t pursue stage roles. Richard took the advice, and after his first role, was hooked on acting.
Richard’s career started in the early ‘90s, making his debut in the TV series “Renegade” (1992).
Although it was a minor role, it was just enough to get him his first film role, portraying Ike Turner Jr. in the film “What’s Love Got to Do with It” in 1993, nominated for several Academy Awards, and starring Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne and RaeVen Kelly. He spent the ‘90s building a name for himself in the films and TV series, such as “Renaissance Man” (1994), with Danny DeVito in the lead role, supporting Gregory Hines and James Remar, then “The Trigger Effect” (1996), while in 1997 he had a role in the cult sci-fi classic film “Event Horizon”, in which Laurence Fishburne had the lead role. The same year he joined Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Cary Elwes, in the crime mystery film “Kiss the Girls”.

Nevertheless, it didn’t affect his career, as in 2011 he appeared in the award-winning sci-fi mystery-thriller film “Super 8”.
