Doug Jones is an American actor.

Biography

Jones was born on May 24, 1960, in Indianapolis, Indiana, and grew up in the city's northeastern side. He had three older brothers. After attending Bishop Chatard High School, he headed off to Ball State University, where he performed as the school's mascot, which allowed him to develop his contortionist skills. He graduated in 1982 with a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications, with a minor in Theatre. He learned mime at school, joining a troupe, and also worked as a contortionist. He later commented about being a contortionist, ""You'd be surprised how many times that comes into play in commercials. They'll want somebody to hold a box of Tide funny or something. I once squished into a box for a commercial for relaxed fit jeans." After having a break in theater in Indiana, he moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1985. Since then, he has acted in over 25 films, many television series, including the award-winning Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and over 90 commercials and music videos.

Although known mostly for his work under prosthetics, Jones has also performed as himself in films such as Adaptation, Mystery Men, and Batman Returns, as well as indie projects such as A Series of Small Things. He then became well-known for his performance as Abe Sapien in Hellboy, which was a box-office success in 2004. The film's financial success brought him an even higher profile and praise from audiences and critics alike. More recently, he became heavily involved with indie works: he appeared in the web-series Universal Dead and the indie film The Candy Shop. He is also slated to portray the Operator, a supernatural entity in a film adaptation of the Marble Hornets web-series based on the popular Internet myth Slender Man. In his personal life, Jones is married to Laurie Jones and currently lives in California.

On Criminal Minds

Jones appeared in the Season One episode Blood Hungry as drug-addicted robber and murder suspect Domino Thacker. He then reappeared in the Season Four episode Brothers in Arms as Beanie, a fight club captain.
