  2. He will have been looked after by someone kind that Ripley knew. For life. Quit worrying!

    There's actually a bit of a tragic story attached to that.

    Jonesy thought his big comeback break was in Batman Returns, but he was devastated to find that he had to share the screen with many other, frankly less talented cats....

    It really affected his ego, having to be herded onset with a load of other idiotic extras when he had once shone as a furry star in the acting pantheons of Hollywood.

    It was around about this time that he started to choose even stupider roles.

    See if you can spot Jonesy from the 90 second mark on.....

    But of course that's not the worst of it. Have you forgotten about how low he eventually sank?

    How he finally had to succumb to the ultimate humiliation of accepting the role as Salem Saberhagen in SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH...

    Oh the humanity! I can barely bring myself to think of that adventurous and intrepid robot cat, brought so low by Hollywood, the BBC and American TV.

    Thank God Colin never got that robot cat he always wanted,

    I can't see old Sixie putting up with an egotistical, has been movie star trying to hog the limelight and hissing during Colin's bellowed Pip and Jane quotes!

    Thank God Jonesy was limited to Sylvester's finale.

    And when that live-action TOM AND JERRY film never eventuated, if finally spelt the end of his struggling and unsuccessful acting career. It was a catastrophe, a real cataclysm, that was the catalyst that caused him to suffer from cataplexy and led to his near catatonic state of catalepsy.

    Of course, what we never got to see was what happened to Colin just thirty seconds after the end of this clip, when that cat suddenly leapt up and ripped his face off with its claws...

    That was the real reason why Colin had to regenerate.

    If the rumours are true that Fox is going to start a new series of films set long after all of the others, then what hope for a reappearance by Jonesy - bar cloning.

    I am very upset by this news.

    I'm sorry to depress you further, but Jones was already done for the moment Donald Trump showed up.

    We all know about his predilections concerning pussy grabbing...

    Oh, wait a minute! If Fox want to do a Disney and reeeeeeally milk this franchise to death, like Star Wars, why shouldn't Jonesy get his own solo movie, that the directors can then get fired off, followed by extensive reshoots?

    And an acting coach for Jonesy of course.

    And if the role proves to be too strenuous for him, he can always quit and audition for the role of GARFIELD.

    Jonesy kicks ass! He could kick Garfield's ass too. Jonesy is the bomb!

    Yes, but I just thought that after he'd finished kicking all that alien arse, he'd appreciate a taste of the easy life. Sleeping in late in a comfortable bed, an obedient Human to tend to all his needs, limitless lasagne...

    The limitless lasagne certainly sounds good to me. :emoji_relaxed:

    Finally, a spin-off project that everyone can get on board with!

    I think that the underlying tension in these following publicity shots is dreadful.

    It seems clear that Weaver and Jonesy did not get on with each other..... and, perhaps, the full story of this feud will come out one day.

    As I understand it they used four different cats for the filming. Apparently Weaver was complaining about the performance of one, unaware that it was the one she was holding. Fortunately the cat, ever the professional, didn't let the feud interfere with his performance.:emoji_alien:

    Yes, the final photo says it all. :emoji_confused:

    Notice, also, that in the second photo, Jonesy seems to be looking at the gun somewhat longingly.

    In an unexpected revelation, Jonesy the cat has made allegations his fur was stroked the wrong direction on several occasions leading to a hostile working environment. When approached for comment, Sigourney Weaver said, "How the hell is that cat still alive?"

    Weaver has never once praised her co-star publicly either. One gets the impression that, while Ripley would risk her life to save Jonesy the character in the film, Sigourney Weaver wouldn't cross the street to save Jonesy the actor.

    It seems very reminiscent of the feuds between William Shatner and everyone he has ever worked with, ever. :emoji_confused:

    But where does the fault lay? Weaver or Jonesy? Or both? :emoji_confused:
