Michael Vincent Jones (born July 24, 1987) is an American actor, voice actor, podcast host, and internet personality who is known for his work with Rooster Teeth's gameplay division Achievement Hunter. He also co-hosts a three-time winner of the Podcast Awards, Internet Box.
Jones has worked extensively with Rooster Teeth, having also starred in the second and third seasons of Immersion, the comedy murder mystery series Ten Little Roosters, and voices the character Sun Wukong in Rooster Teeth's RWBY, and Max in Camp Camp. He starred in Rooster Teeth's science fiction action comedy film Lazer Team, released in 2016.
His work outside of Rooster Teeth includes voicing Sting Eucliffe in Fairy Tail, Dogra in One Piece, Rapture in Ninja Slayer From Animation, and Gen in World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman.
After graduating from high school, Jones worked as an electrician for almost five years. Jones first came to attention after his video "Crackdown 2 - Orbs = Bullshit" reached the front page of reddit. He received an email from Rooster Teeth asking him to join and make a new show for Achievement Hunter, which became Rage Quit. In September 2011, he co-founded and co-hosted, with fellow employees Barbara Dunkelman, Ray Narvaez, Jr., Lindsay Jones, and Kerry Shawcross, as well as non-employees Andrew Blanchard, Mike Kroon, and Dylon Saramago, the triple award-winning Internet Box podcast. He is an occasional guest on the Rooster Teeth Podcast and is currently the main host of the Achievement Hunter podcast Off Topic.
Jones has worked as both an actor and a voice artist in multiple projects, several of which are produced by Rooster Teeth, including roles as Sun Wukong in Rooster Teeth's animated series RWBY, fictionalized versions of himself in both Rooster Teeth Shorts and Ten Little Roosters, Mogar in the animated series X-Ray and Vav, and Zach in the sci-fi comedy film Lazer Team. He has co-starred in the Rooster Teeth series Immersion since season two. His non-Rooster Teeth credits include the animated shows Fairy Tail, as Sting Eucliffe, and World Break: Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman, as Gen. On October 1, 2016, Jones announced via Twitter that he will be playing Dogra in One Piece.
The creator of the video game Surgeon Simulator named the alien character Gworb after a remark made by Jones in a Let's Play video in which Jones was conversing with Gavin Free. In addition Gworb has an organ known as the "gavicle" which is a combination of Michael Jones' and Gavin Free's names.
Jones was born in Woodbridge, New Jersey to "devout Roman Catholic parents." On May 9, 2014, Jones married long-time girlfriend and Rooster Teeth employee Lindsay Tuggey. During Rooster Teeth's 2016 Extra Life livestream, the couple announced that they are expecting a child, which was later revealed to be a girl in January 2017. They announced the birth of their daughter, Iris Elise Jones, born May 24, 2017.
