The award, given annually to the actor who fosters the finest ideals of the acting profession, will be presented to Jones in January when the guild honors the year’s top acting achievements on television and film, SAG said on Thursday.

Jones’ voice is known around the world in roles such as Mufasa, the king in Disney’s “The Lion King”, and in numerous commercials.

He also has a long and distinguished career on Broadway in roles such as boxer Jack Johnson in

“The Great White Hope”, on screen in “Patriot Games” and “Cry the Beloved Country”, and on television, where he played Alex Hayley in “Roots:The Next Generation.”

Ironically, Jones, 77, spent his childhood as a virtual mute because of a severe stutter that he overcame only in high school.

SAG president Alan Rosenberg said Jones was an extraordinary actor whose long and quiet work off camera as an advocate for literacy and the arts “deserves our appreciation.”
