    Default RIP Eddie Jones (Jonathan Kent from Lois and Clark)

    Eddie Jones, who played Jonathan Kent on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, has passed away at 84.

    I remember him in that show, and the far less well known Invisible Man series from the early 2000's. He was a good actor in both roles. I'm sorry to hear the news, but at his age, it's not really surprising.

    I remember my dad once saying that his and K. Callan's Ma & Pa were the takes on the characters he most believed were the people who would have raised Superman.

    He certainly portrayed the warmth that one would imagine Superman embodies. A real shame he's gone. My condolences to his surviving family.

    They were certainly a bright spot in an already very good show. I was hoping he and K. Callan would come to Metropolis one year. RIP Mr. Jones, and condolences to his family.

    I honestly thought he had passed away some time ago. Still,sad news. He and K. Callan were always fun to watch and they brought a lot to Lois and Clark. To date, he's the only live action Jonathan Kent to not die on screen. Rest in peace,Eddie. Thanks for a great version of Jonathan Kent.
    When it comes to comics,one person's "fan-service" is another persons personal cannon. So by definition it's ALL fan service. Aren't we ALL fans?
    SUPERMAN is the greatest fictional character ever created.

    Sad news. I always liked his take on Pa.

    Was his the only live-action portrayal of Jonathan Kent who lived to see Clark become Superman?

    Unless you widen this to be more 'see Clark in the uniform' and count the Superboy series, all the other live-action portrayals had Jonathan pass away before Clark wore the cape.


    Lots of good memories of Eddie Jones as Jonathan - for which I will always be grateful.

    This is the camp I'm in. I could have sworn I heard a few years back that he had died. I know Perry did. Him and K Callan are probably my favorite live action Ma and Pa. He also did a voice on the Ghost In The Shell series. The guy trying to oust the Prime Minister.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Sad. I always enjoyed the character dynamics on Lois and Clark.
