That James Earl Jones smile

James Earl Jones flashes that smile of his -- there's something about the shape of his mouth, or possibly those round cheeks, that makes his smiles seem joyful -- as he arrives at the 53rd Drama Desk Awards. This was at the (get ready for a long one) Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts Concert Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City, on May 18, 2008. James Earl Jones was born on January 17, 1931, so he was a youthful 77 years old when this photo was taken.
