Ron Cephas Jones a New Jersey native, has had a successful career in television, film and stage.

Jones has also performed in several theatrical productions with the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois; appeared as the title character of Shakespeare's Richard III with The Public Theater in New York City, New York, as well as other Off Broadway productions. Jones has served as an understudy or standby in several Broadway theatre productions.
Of course we all know him as one of the most beloved characters on NBC's This is Us. Ron plays William Hill, the biological father of Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown). William could not parent Randall and left him at a fire house after his mother died. Randall was then adopted by Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) Pearson.
Luckily, we got to sit down with Ron and discuss what its like playing one of the coolest characters on television, working with Sterling, and what he did to developed and create William.
