INFO:

The ultimate butcher of football, Vinnie Jones... An England born, Vinnie Jones started his football career by joining the non-league Wealdstone F.C., and then moved to the Wimbledon F.C. in 1986. He soon made a reputation for himself as a “hard man” player with such infamous incident as grasping another player’s testicles. Also, he created the still unbroken record of being the quickest footballer ever to be yellow-carded in a game of professional soccer, which he achieved in the first three seconds of a game. Apart from the dispute actions, Jones helped the club win the 1988 Football Association Challenge Cup (English football’s greatest honor), which is arguably Wimbledon’s best accomplishment.

Jones then played for other clubs such as Chelsea F.C., Sheffield United F.C. and Leeds United F.C., before returning to Wimbledon in 1992. Though Jones showed that he could thrive and play well devoid of the illegitimate side of his game during his season at Leeds United (earned only three yellow cards in the whole season), the tough player again gained notoriety as the presenter of the infamous video compilation “Soccer’s Hard Men” (1992), which featured footage of himself and several other players taking on in bumpy game play. This led Jones to be fined £20,000 by the Football Association for ‘bringing the game into disregard.’ Two years later, the talented Jones was selected as the captain of the Wales International soccer team, which marked a peak in his football career. In 1998, Jones ended up his professional career by serving as player/coach of the Queens Park Rangers before retiring the next year. Already making a name for himself on the football field, Jones stepped into entertainment industry after his retirement. Starting in television commercials, he quickly made the leap to the big screen with a supporting role of the menacing Big Chris in the crime comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1999), which was directed and written by Madonna’s future husband Guy Ritchie. His fine portrayal of an enforcer and debt collector became one of the film’s most unforgettable elements. As a result, he was awarded an Empire for Best Debut.

His subsequent roles were similar to Big Chris’ and his actual persona (threatening and physical men), including a turn as the silent associate the Sphinx in Nicholas Cage’s starring vehicle Gone In 60 Seconds (2000). He then rejoined Ritchie in Snatch, playing eternal Bullet Tooth Tony, opposite Jason Statham and Brad Pitt. For his effort, Jones again nabbed an Empire, this time for Best British Actor. After supporting John Travolta, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry in Swordfish (2001), he took on the starring role of a renowned football player in Mean Machine (2001), a British football remake of 1974’s The Longest Yard as well as played Rodan in Night at the Golden Eagle (2002). Also in 2002, he made his debut as a singer by releasing an album of blues and soul songs named “Respect.”Returning to filmmaking in 2004, Jones once again assumed a hard-hitting role, this time as Lou Harris in the crime/thriller The Big Bounce, starring Owen Wilson as con man Jack Ryan. His next performances in Tooth and Euro Trip (both 2004) permitted the actor to bend a small comic muscle as a nasty fairytale figure and a hotwired soccer hooligan, respectively. The same year, Jones was also seen in Blast! and Survive Style 5+. Jones kept on himself busy the following year by starring in the action Johnny Was, as well as playing supporting roles films in Hollywood Flies (TV), the sci-fi Slipstream, the comedy The Other Half (appeared as the Boss) and director Russell Mulcahy’s Mysterious Island (TV).

Jones recently appeared as a soccer coach in the Amanda Bynes comedy She’s the Man (2006) and a detective in Played (2006), a crime film which also featured Val Kilmer. He also reunited with Swordfish costars Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry for the blockbuster sequel X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), portraying malicious mutant Juggernaut, and provided the voice of Rommel in the animated film Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) for director Tim Hill. He will have supporting parts in the action/thriller The Condemned (2006, opposite wrestling superstar “Stone Cold” Steve Austin) and the comedy 7-10 Split (2006, opposite Tara Reid). In 2007, Jones in scheduled to play roles in The Riddle (opposite Derek Jacobi), the adventure The Filthy War and The comedy Carry on London (along side Swedish beauty Victoria Silvstedt) and Rush Hour 3. He is also rumored to reprise his role of Juggernaut for the next series Wolverine (2007) and play a role in the upcoming Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker vehicle Rush Hour 3 (2007).
