Tommy Lee Jones seeks 10 million dollars in lawsuit

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - September 7, 2008 The lawsuit against Paramount Pictures claims the actor was promised "significant box-office bonuses" and other compensation depending on the success of the film. It went on to make more than 160 million dollars.

Jones, who played Sheriff Ed Tom Bell in the movie, claims he was not paid the bonuses and that his expenses were wrongly deducted.

He's asking that an auditor be named to review the financial records to determine how much he should be paid.
