James Earl Jones is a Mississippi-born actor with an estimated net worth of $45 million dollars. A veteran of stage and screen, James Earl Jones, he is most widely recognized for his voiceover work, including the voice of Darth Vader and Mufasa in "The Lion King". He has also won three Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe, two Tony Awards, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actor's Guild.
James Earl Jones (born January 17, 1931) is an American actor. He is well known for his distinctive bass voice and for his portrayal of characters of substance, gravitas and leadership. Since his Broadway debut in 1957, Jones has spent more than five decades as "one of America's most distinguished and versatile actors" and has been termed "one of the greatest actors in American history." On November 12, 2011, Jones received an Honorary Academy Award.
