VARSITY BLUES

JON VOIGHT stars as Coach Bud Kilmer, the hard-driving head coach of a West Texas high school football team who believes winning is everything.

Voight began acting in high school in Yonkers, New York. After training for the stage at New York's Neighborhood Playhouse, he made his Broadway debut in 1961 in the long-running Rogers and Hammerstein musical "The Sound of Music." He gained further experience on stage in such theatrical productions as Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge" and Frank D. Gilroy's "That Summer - That Fall" before making his film debut in 1967.

The actor was catapulted to fame when he earned his first Academy AwardTM nomination as well as New York and Los Angeles Film Critics Awards, for his portrayal of a naive hustler in John Schlesinger's "Midnight Cowboy." After memorable performances in films such as "Catch-22," "Deliverance" and "The Odessa File," Voight was honored with an Oscar® for Best Actor for his indelible performance as a disabled and bitter veteran who finds love in "Coming Home." This performance also earned him a Golden Globe Award, Cannes International Film Festival Award, and New York and Los Angeles Film Critics Awards for Best Actor.

He then went on to star in films such as "The Champ," "Lookin' to Get Out" (which he also produced and co-wrote), "Table for Five," (on which he also served as producer), "Desert Bloom" and "Runaway Train," which brought him his third Academy AwardTM nomination.

More recently, Voight has appeared in the blockbuster "Mission: Impossible" as Jim Phelps, "Rosewood," "Anaconda," Oliver Stone's "U-Turn," Keenan Ivory Wayans' action-thriller "Most Wanted," Michael Mann's "Heat," Francis Ford Coppola's film adaptation of John Grisham's "The Rainmaker" and "Enemy of the State." Upcoming, he will appear in John Boorman's "The General."

His television credits include the recent Showtime movie "The Fixer," "Convict Cowboy," "Chernobyl: The Final Warning," "The Last of His Tribe," "Return to Lonesome Dove" and "Noah's Ark" for NBC. Voight made his directorial debut with the television film "Tin Soldier."
