Sam J. Jones (born Samuel Gerald Jones on August 12, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American actor, often credited as Sam Jones. Often cast as a hero in action films, Jones is best remembered for his portrayal of Flash Gordon in the 1980 film of the same name. As Andrew Cooper III, he was the centerfold in the June 1975 issue of Playgirl Magazine. Jones grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida. He made his first film appearance opposite Bo Derek in the 1979 romance comedy film 10. Though it is now considered to be a cult classic, the critical failure (at the time) of Flash Gordon effectively stalled Jones's career in American film. Since then his work has largely been in television and in low-budget action films. He played Chris Rorchek in the TV series Code Red (1981–1982), was the lead in a 1987 adaptation of Will Eisner's comics character The Spirit, and played the title character in the short-lived NBC series The Highwayman. Later, Jones acted the villain in films such as Obsession Kills (1995), Fists of Iron (1995), American Strays (1996), American Tigers (1996), Gangland and Psychotic (2002). He also starred in the romantic comedy My Chauffeur (1986) and Jane and the Lost City,
