Drew Barrymore hardly needs an introduction. The beloved actress had been the apple of the cinematic world’s eye since her breakthrough performance in “E.T.”. When Columbia Pictures undertook to film a modern-day reboot of “Charlie’s Angels” in the year 2000, Barrymore was handpicked to play the role of Dylan Sanders.
The part of Dylan Sanders shared a similar function as being the “leader” of the Angels. The business-savvy Barrymore bought the screen rights to the “Charlie’s Angels” franchise prior to filming the blockbuster. This decision earned Barrymore around $120,000,000 in profit.
Tommy Lee Jones
Then Silver-haired, silver screen titan Tommy Lee Jones appeared as a blip on the radar when he had a guest role on the original "Charlie’s Angels" pilot. The fresh-faced, thirty-year-old Tommy played the supporting role of a villain who, upon discovering the undercover efforts of the Angels, threatened to undo their carefully laid plans.
Tommy would only appear a single time in the "Charlie’s Angels" universe, as his single-purpose character was not reprised for future episodes. Ironically, Tommy ended up having the lion’s share of screentime over future starlet Farrah Fawcett!

Heavily involved in the outdoors and country life, Lee Jones owns two ranches in Texas and is an avid polo player. So avid, in fact, that he provides support to the Polo Training Foundation. The thrice-married actor lives in his home state of Texas with his wife, Dawn Laurel.
Drew Barrymore Now
While still being an actress, Drew Barrymore extended her Hollywood prowess beyond the camera lens and went on behind it: writing, directing, and founding the production company "Flower Films." Forever business-minded, the entrepreneurial entertainer owns a line of cosmetics, fashion, and wines.
Barrymore embarked into unfamiliar territory in 2020 and launched her eponymous daytime talk show, "The Drew Barrymore Show", which has seen tremendous success with American audiences. A devoted animal lover, the actress has used her status to bring awareness to animal rights worldwide.
The American actress found herself in leading lady status by playing Alex Munday in the 2000 and 2003 megahit reboots, making up one-third of the crimefighting heroines. The steely starlet was known as the all-rounder Angel and was an expert in electronics and martial arts and a master tactician.
An on-set spat with Bill Murray went down in Hollywood history when the two had an altercation due to an apparent snide remark made by the much older Murray, with Murray refusing to return for the 2003 sequel due to it. The two have since laid differences aside.
