In Seeking Justice, a new drama co-starring Nicholas Cage and Guy Pearce, Jones plays the victim of a brutal assault, but instead of turning into a victim, she is empowered by the experience. As it turns out, that's exactly what attracted Jones to the script.
"I was drawn to the fact the character I play is victimized, but doesn't become a victim," she says in an ETOnline exclusive sneak peek at the DVD's bonus features. "That appealed to me [because] it was something I hadn't played before."
