Old Men Strike Back

It's always sad when actors begin lawsuits against much-loved films. Especially relatively small, Indie films.

The Press Association reports that Tommy Lee Jones is suing the makers of No Country For Old Men for more than $10 million.

The lawsuit against Paramount Pictures claims that Jones was promised "significant box-office bonuses" and other compensation depending on the success of the film, which went on to take in more than $160 million.

Jones, who played Sheriff Ed Tom Bell in the film, claims he was not paid promised bonuses and had expenses wrongly deducted.
