His career has spanned more than seven decades, and he has been described as "one of America's most distinguished and versatile" actors and "one of the greatest actors in American history". Since his Broadway debut in 1957, Jones has won many awards, including a Tony Award for his role in ''The Great White Hope'', which also earned him a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for the film version of the play.

He is also known for his voice roles as Darth Vader in the ''Star Wars'' film series and Mufasa in Disney's ''The Lion King'', as well as many other film, stage and television roles.

Jones has been said to possess "one of the best-known voices in show business, a stirring basso profondo that has lent gravel and gravitas" to his projects, including live-action acting, voice acting, and commercial voice-overs. In 1970, he won a Grammy Award for ''Great American Documents''. As a child, Jones had a stutter. In his episode of ''Biography'', he said he overcame the affliction through poetry, public speaking, and acting, although it lasted for several years.

On November 9, 2015, Jones received the Voice Arts Icon Award.
