Some actors are expected to take their performances too far—your Nicolas Cages, your William Shatners. This is, however, not something one would expect from Tommy Lee Jones. As one of the most reliably consistent character actors in movie history, Jones almost always turns out a restrained, nuanced, slow build of a performance. For example: his work in The Fugitive, No Country for Old Men, and even the Men in Black movies, which are still sci-fi comedies about aliens based on a comic book.
But while filming another movie based on a comic book property, Jones chose to go wild. In 1995's Batman Returns he portrays Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face. Part of the character's schtick is to make decisions based on coin flips, and in one scene in particular, Jones' performance is so manic as to be unsettling, furiously and rapidly delivering his lines while fiddling with that coin. And this is the first scene of the movie.
