A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, Jones' talent and passion for performing led her to Broadway where she captured the attention of theater-goers and critics alike.

Jones earned her first Tony Award nomination in 1994 for her performance in Our Country's Good, but it was her role as Catherine Sloper in the Lincoln Center's revival of The Heiress that won her the Tony Award for Best Actress. Jones went on to star in Tennessee Williams' The Night of the Iguana and gave another Tony Award-nominated performance in Eugene O'Neill's A Moon for the Misbegotten. In 2005, Jones nabbed her second Tony Award for her performance in John Patrick Shanley's Doubt. Her additional stage credits include Nora Ephron's Imaginary Friends, Major Barbara and Faith Healers.

Jones recently wrapped production on Mira Nair's Amelia, and has been seen in numerous critically acclaimed films including Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Twelve and Erin Brokovich, Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer, Wolfgang Petersen's The Perfect Storm and M. Night Shyamalan's The Village and Signs.

A native of Paris, TN, Jones has been a proud member of Equity since 1978. She divides her time between Los Angeles and New York.
