Sam Jones, Celtics Great and 10-Time Champion, Speaks His Mind

Jones: He told me that he saw Flash Gordon when he was seven or eight, and how it influenced his career and fed his creativity. I had no idea he was going to call. Apparently he sent out people to track me down. So I said, “Yeah, lets talk.” And he invited me to a table read. A small table read, he called it. There were 85 people there, in his office! HV: Youve been working in private security, right?

Former Smallville star Sam Jones III released from prison two months early after being sentenced to a year for conspiracy to sell drugs

Smallville actor Sam Jones released on bail after pleading guilty to drug trafficking case It all started when in October 2009 the actor was arrested by members of the Drug Enforcement Agency at his home in the Canoga Park neighbourhood of Los Angeles. The once promising actor was taken into custody after meeting an undercover federal agent who was posing as an Oxycodone supplier. According to court documents obtained by Mail Online, the government seized a massive amount of drugs from the gang – 586 pounds of marijuana and 10,000 fake Oxycodone tablets, which the defendants believed were real. Let off lightly: The 33-year-old could have easily spent five years behind bars and 20 years at most The DEA described Jones as the ‘Hollywood connection’ to the drug plot. He played the role of Pete Ross for three seasons on Smallville, a CW series that follows the adventures of Clark Kent during the years before he becomes Superman. Jones’ character was one of Kent’s best friends on the show. But the actor is perhaps even more famous for making a sex tape with his girlfriend, former Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon.

‘Flash Gordon’ Star Sam Jones on His Triumphant, Crazy Comeback Role in ‘Ted’ (Q&A)

He went against the rules of the NBA.” FanHouse: Now that you’re retired, living in Florida, what do you do with your time? Sam Jones: “Play golf three, four times a week, some of the nicest courses in the country. But I’m still lousy.” FanHouse: Is that a true story that you almost didn’t play in the NBA and nearly turned down the Celtics after they drafted you in the first round (out of North Carolina Central)? Sam Jones: “I always liked the idea of being an educator, a teacher. And back then, neither profession paid very well. If I could have gotten another $500 from the school system where I wanted to teach, I never would have played professional basketball. And I would have been happy, being a teacher and a high school coach.” FanHouse: Who else from your Celtic teams do you stay in contact with?
