He rarely leads an ensemble, but Toby Jones pops up in more major films than most of Hollywood’s top stars. In just the last year he’s been seen (and heard) in Captain America: The First Avenger, The Adventures of Tintin, The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman, My Week with Marilyn and most recently, Red Lights.

When White confronts this illness her life, in some ways, […]
