  Tommy Lee Jones at Hollywood.com
Whenever a time came that it seemed Jones, an eighth-generation Texan, was about to become typecast in country-boy roles, or his taciturn demeanor shunted him into villainous roles, his sensitivity managed to add depth to the most routine parts.
Jones reunited with Davis for the thrillers "Under Siege" (1992), as a rockin-'n'-rollin' psychopath who takes over a naval carrier, and "The Fugitive" (1993), a film remake of the hit 60s TV series wherein he played a hardened lawman unwilling to relinquish his hunt for Harrison Ford's Dr. Richard Kimble.
Jones gamely tried his hand at comedy and light romance, but seemed far too accomplished intelligent to have much tolerance for the lowbrow material.

 indieWIRE: Dead Man Riding: Tommy Lee Jones' "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada"
This season's other cowboy bonding pic, Tommy Lee Jones' spare, deeply warped theatrical directorial debut may not be as socially radical and ultimately important as "Brokeback Mountain." But in all other respects (structure, dialogue, and detail) it's "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," with its sun-drunk flights into the absurd, that takes the risks.
Yet Jones, a staggeringly physical performance from Pepper, and the stark simplicity of the vistas (along with a purple dusklit drunk-dial scene at an open-walled desert saloon that is one of the year's most poignant and ravishing visuals) overwhelm any of the screenplay's shortcomings.
