British Actor TOBY JONES (Mr. Eversoll) is known for his performances both in the theater and on screen. This year, he returned to the stage for the revival of Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party, and his performance was met with high acclaim. This year has also seen him star on screen in the French comedy film Normandie nue for Philippe le Guay and Lionsgate’s World War I drama Journey’s End.

Film credits in 2017 included Universal Pictures’ crime drama The Snowman and Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or-nominated film Happy End. In 2016, Jones starred in the psychological indie thriller Kaleidoscope. Jones also reprised his British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award (BAFTA)-nominated role in the third and final season of the award-winning comedy series Detectorists, written by and co-starring Mackenzie Crook. Jones won both the Capri European Talent Award and the award for Best British Actor at the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards for his leading role as Truman Capote in Infamous. In 2011, Jones starred in the Oscar®-nominated adaptation of John le Carré’s classic crime novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and, in 2012, he garnered huge critical acclaim for his performance as Alfred Hitchcock in the HBO/BBC television movie The Girl, for which he received BAFTA, Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy Award nominations. That same year, Jones starred as Gilderoy in Peter Strickland’s multi-award-winning film Berberian Sound Studio. In 2014, Jones starred in the BBC Two drama Marvellous, which won the 2015 BAFTA TV Award for Single Drama, and, in 2015, in Matteo Garrone’s fantasy horror Tale of Tales.

Further credits include Atomic Blonde, Sherlock, Dad’s Army, The Secret Agent, The Witness for the Prosecution, Morgan, Wayward Pines, Capital, The Man Who Knew Infinity, The Hunger Games series, the Harry Potter series, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Leave to Remain, Andrew Kötting’s By Our Selves, My Week with Marilyn, The Adventures of Tintin, Frost/Nixon, W. and The Painted Veil.
For theater, Jones was seen in Circle Mirror Transformation again with Imelda Staunton for the Royal Court. He was awarded the 2002 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in The Play What I Wrote, a musical farce written by Hamish McColl, Sean Foley and Eddie Braben, and directed by Kenneth Branagh. The Olivier Award-winning show was a celebration of the British double act Morecambe and Wise, and an irreverent and farcical exploration of the nature of double acts in general. Jones starred as Arthur at the Wyndham’s Theatre, London, before the play opened on Broadway, New York, where it was nominated for a Tony Award as Best Special Theatrical Event. His other theater credits include The Painter (Arcola Theatre), Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (Olivier Theatre), Parlour Song (Almeida Theatre) and Measure for Measure (National Theatre Complicité co-production).
