In September 2008, Jones filed a suit against Paramount Pictures, claiming that the studio owned him more than $10 million in promised "box-office bonuses" and other back-end compensation for his work in No Country for Old Men.

Jones has continued to work steadily. In 2010, he appeared in the drama The Company Men with Ben Affleck and Chris Cooper. The following year, he had a supporting role in the big budget action film Captain America: The First Avenger, starring Chris Evans.

In the film Emperor, he played General Douglas MacArthur.

He met his second wife, Kimberlea Cloughley, on the Texas set of Back Roads (1981). They married in 1981 and had two children, Austin and Victoria, before divorcing in 1996.
