Together with his wife Kate Lardner (granddaughter of the famous novelist of the Ring Lardner) and her two children from a previous marriage, Jones moved to Los Angeles, mecca for all who dream of acting glory of young people. But the all-American star Jones was destined to become not soon.

From 1971 to 1975. He starred in the television soap opera "Only one life" as Dr. Mark Tolenda, . but after the movie, John Flynn, rumbling thunder "(1977), . in which he played Major Johnny Vodena, . Jones often offered the role of the brave harsh military and police,
. That role in the movie "The Fugitive" (1993) - fearless U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard, pursuing a suspect in the murder of Harrison Ford - brought actor Oscar for vtoroplanovuyu role in 1994. (The success of "The Fugitive" was so great that five years later, Jones once again reincarnated as a way of Marshal Gerard in the film "The servants of the law").

Jones worked extensively on TV all 70-s., During the filming in the picture "country roads" (1980), he fell in love with an actress Kimberly Klofli, which became his second wife. The first truly successful film for him was a television film adaptation of the novel by Norman Mailer's "The Song of the executioner" (1982). The role of the disillusioned in the life of the prisoner, who asked to voluntarily expose his death, brought Tommy Lee Award Emmy.
