Tommy Lee Jones to get award at Spanish film festival
MADRID (AFP) - Oscar-winning US actor Tommy Lee Jones will receive an award in honour of his career at the San Sebastian film festival in Spain next month, festival organisers said on Thursday.
The 65-year-old Men In Black star will collect one of the festival's Donostia Awards, "awarded to a great film personality in recognition for their work and career", at a ceremony on Sept 28, they said in a statement.
Festival organisers praised Jones as "one of the most acclaimed and accomplished actors in Hollywood", who has had "a brilliant career spanning four decades".
Jones won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1994 for his portrayal of determined US Marshall Sam Gerard in the box office hit The Fugitive.
