What Happened to Thomas Jane?

In the 2000s, Thomas Jane was one of the rising stars in Hollywood. 

In 2010, Thomas James appeared on Men’s Fitness magazine’s June/July cover. He voiced Jonah Hex in the animation. Jane was meant to play the role of a police officer in Sylvester Stallone’s hitman action movie Headshot but was considered short on ethics and released. In June 2012, he released a digital extended play, Don’t Come Home, under the alias Rusty Blades. During Comic-Con International held in San Diego in 2012, he premiered an independently financed short movie Dirty Laundy.

But by the time the 2020s rolled around, Jane’s life and career experienced downfalls. We don’t see him much on the screen as we used to and his partner Anne Heche died in a car accident, in August 2022.

Thomas Jane Today

Thomas acted as the star detective Joe Miller in ‘The Expanse’ in which humans colonized the Asteroid Belt and Mars and realized an alien lifeform.

The series debuted in 2015 and aired for seven seasons.

In the first season, Miller came across the protomolecule, which was influential in the plot’s narrative.

In season 2, the detective was killed when Eros crashed into Venus and later reappeared as a manifestation of the protomolecule that could only be seen by James Holden (Steven Strait).

In the fourth season, Miller’s new form was also destroyed when Holden used a black hole-like bomb to destroy the protomoloecule.

While his character was done in season 4, he later returned to the series in a creative role in the fifth season.

In season five, he directed an episode and helmed episode three of the season that premiered on Amazon Prime.

He also helped create the first two episodes of season five.

While talking about his new role, he revealed it was fulfilling due to his past stint as Miller.

Regarding logistics, various moving parts while filming made it difficult for him to direct the episodes.

The series ended in January 2022.
