It looks like Tommy Lee Jones was on the right end of a major contract error. Jones was supposed to get bonus money when his film 'No Country for Old Men' hit a certain gross target overseas, but the actor was instead awarded the money when box office receipts were only half the target (this happened due to a costly error in Jones' contract). When Paramount decided to hold off on giving him the bonus, Jones sued and was eventually awarded $15 million. That's where things get really confusing.
