Jeffrey Jones has made some indelible impressions, in roles
like the obsessive school principal in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY
OFF and the harassed homeowner in BEETLEJUICE. Jones excels
at playing tightly wound, uptight types, who are close to
unraveling, which inevitably occurs, to humorous or dramatic
effect, depending on the circumstances.
Jones captured our attention when he played the dopey Emperor Joseph
II in AMADEUS (1984) and pratfalling high-school principal
in the hit teen comedy FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (1986).
