Tamala Jones has created a varied career based on her prodigious talent, working steadily in comedic and dramatic projects for both film and television. At 20 Jones made her feature film debut in "How to Make an American Quilt" as the great-grandmother of Maya Angelou's character. That same year Jones racked up television roles in "The Wayans Bros.," "The Parent 'Hood" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," as well as a recurring role as Joanie on "ER." From there Jones the regular cast of the ABC drama "Dangerous Minds," which gave her a chance to show her dramatic chops as a teenage mother facing parenthood and an abusive spouse.

In 1997 Jones landed a supporting role in the popular comedy "Booty Call" and a recurring turn on "Veronica's Closet." Jones was next featured in the teen comedy "Can't Hardly Wait." That same year Jones was cast in a more grown-up role as a divorcee on "For Your Love," showcasing a winning combination of irreverent moxie and surprising sweetnes.

Jones was featured in both the romantic drama "The Wood" and the action comedy "Blue Streak," then was seen in the musical drama "Turn it Up" and the comedies "The Ladies Man" and "Next Friday." On television Jones amassed credits that included a turn as Lucille of rock song fame in the biopic "Little Richard." In 2001 Jones renewed her focus on the big screen in supporting roles in the African-American ensemble features "The Brothers" and "Kingdom Come," which gave her the opportunity to create characters while working alongside more experienced performers. Later that year Jones was one of the women being schooled in the management of men by Vivica A. Fox's savvy but stumped character in the comedy "Two Can Play That Game," and in "On the Line" she had a turn as an ambitious and controlling advertising executive who clashes with the idealistic hero, portrayed by NSYNC's Lance Bass. In 2003 Jones worked opposite Chris Rock in "Head of State" and had a co-starring role as the wife of Traci Morgan in the self titled "Traci Morgan Show."

Since then, Jones has co-produced an independent movie "Nora's Hair Salon" and starred in several more films, two of which were "Daddy Day Camp," with Cuba Gooding Jr., and "Janky Promoters," opposite Mike Epps.
