Is Tommy Lee Jones married?
Yes, three time in fact. Currently married to Dawn Laurel-Jones, Kate Lardner (1971-1978), and Kimberlea Cloughley (1981-1996.)

Is Tommy Lee Jones dead?
Nope. As of this post 8/31/2018, he is very much alive. (born September 15, 1946)

Is Tommy Lee Jones left handed?
Nope. He's a righty.

Is Tommy Lee Jones related to George Jones?
Nope, but I can see where someone could think that. Tommy is very connected to Country Music. He played George's good friend Loretta Lynn's husband Mooney in Coal Miner's Daughter opposite Sissy Spacek's Loretta. I believe he is a pretty big C&W fan, and also recommended his friend Levon Helm of The Band (who had prominent Country & Bluegrass roots) for the part of Loretta's father Ted Webb.
