Caleb Landry Jones has been called Hollywood’s best-supporting actor thanks to his many supporting roles in which he can never make it to the end of his career. 2017 was his best year yet in a career that began in 2007.
He was particularly outstanding in “Get Out” and in the coveted awards such as “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing”, “Missouri” and “American Made”. Caleb also had a fondness for music. After meeting Robert Hudson in Richardson, Texas, the duo formed a folk-rock band called Robert Jones. Their debut album “Men and Their Horses” was released for digital download in 2009. The band was put on hiatus due to the individual careers of its members.
Caleb Landry Jones Bio/Wiki
CLJ was born on December 7, 1989, in Garland, Texas, the son of farm owners Cindy and Patrick Jones, who later moved to Richardson, a suburb of Dallas, where Caleb spent most of his childhood.
Like his Texas acting colleagues Bill Engvall and Jeff Dunham, Caleb attended Richardson High School, where he performed in a series of school plays. He revealed, however, that he could never get the big plays right because he “just couldn’t get the parts.
“So I grew up where everything could be done on foot – you could go to the fire department, you could go to the store, you could go to the store to get ice cream – that kind of thing. You had to drive to get to the library.” Caleb told Interview magazine about his early life.
In addition to singing and acting, Jones is also a recreational painter and multi-instrumentalist. He plays harmonica, drums, and bass.
Height: 1.8 m (5 feet 11 inches)
Caleb Landry Jones Acting Career
CLJ’s acting career began when he was 16 years old. His first movie ever was the Oscar-nominated film No Land for Old Men, in which he played one of the teenagers who stumbled upon an injured Javier Bardem towards the end of the film. Also in 2007, he received an unappreciated role in Jonah Hill’s Superbad.
In 2008 he made his small screen debut with the recurring character of Jimmy Adler in Friday Night Lights. He also appeared in two episodes of Breaking Bad. Later, Caleb got a role in the horror movie The Last Exorcism of 2010 and decided to move to Los Angeles.
When asked by Interview Mag whether he had moved to LA to become a great actor, Jones replied;
“I went to LA to make that happen, rather than just having a hunch I had. But I knew it would work somehow, I knew I had something. I don’t know how to say it, but I already knew about watching movies that I love so much, or actors that I love so much, that I could get to a similar place.
Caleb was right about his feelings. Just 6 months after moving to LA, he landed the role of the mutant banshee in X-Men: First Class (2011), which featured Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender. The following year, in 2012, Caleb appeared alongside other A-lists, including Mark Wahlberg and Ben Foster in Contraband. His other films for 2012 were Byzantium and Antiviral. In 2013, Jones recorded zero films, but in 2014 a series of 4 films were released, including God’s Pocket, Queen and Country, Heaven Knows What, and Low Down.
All these roles certainly prepared Jones for his much-needed breakthrough, which came in 2017 with the movie Get Out. His role as Jeremy Armitage earned him the Detroit Film Critics Society award for the best breakthrough. He played the recurring role of Steven Burnett in the revival of Twin Peaks.
Caleb Landry Jones Dating/Girlfriend, Gay
Jones seems to be a very private person, about whose personal and romantic life not many details are known to the media. He doesn’t even have a social media account. However, his fans have set up a Twitter fan page CLJArmy where they follow his career.
Although he is a private person, Jones told the vulture that he once had problems with masturbation. When the interviewer asked him what inspired him to paint some frames that he hung on the wall, Jones said, “It took a lot of testicular pain to convince me of that. He explained what caused the pain;
“I was masturbating. After less than a week it still hurt, so I went back to the emergency room. And then, like an idiot, I had a lot of sex. I don’t have a lot of sex, but I had a lot of sex. And then it hurt for another 15 or 20 days!”
Well, while we may not know whom Jones may be with and if he is even in a committed relationship at all, his statement reveals that he is quite sexually active. His sexual orientation, however, is unknown.
