Take a look at the man on the cover of the August 12 issue of Time Magazine. He's a Davis & Elkins College graduate and native West Virginian.
Benjamin Jones, a former resident of Weirton, received his bachelor's degree in hospitality and marketing from D&E in 2008.
After graduation, he moved to New York City to further his acting career. While he's appeared in several off-Broadway productions, the majority of his career has evolved in film and television. Most recently, he's been seen in "True Crimes" on the Discovery Channel, "Mysteries at the Museum" on the Travel Channel and commercials for ESPN's Monday Night Football and CNBC. This summer he filmed Discovery ID's third season of "Deadly Sins," and an episode of "Redrum," a murder re-enactment series set to air on Investigation Discovery in January 2014.
The Time Magazine cover for "The Childfree Life" was shot on July 19 on Atlantic Beach, N.Y.
"We had great fun working together and lots of laughs," Jones says of the photo session. "The energy was right up there with the sun."
