GLORY ROAD

JON VOIGHT (Academy Award® winner and four-time Oscar® nominee) is still remembered for his role in the 1969 classic "Midnight Cowboy,” which brought him his first Oscar® nomination, and for his Academy Award®-winning portrayal of Luke Martin in "Coming Home.” In the nearly 40 years of his career, Jon has proven himself as both leading man and as one of America's most versatile character actors.

Mr. Voight can currently be seen as the legendary coach Adolph Rupp in the Jerry Bruckheimer hit GLORY ROAD, and will soon be seen in Chris Kane's "September Dawn” with Lolita Davidovich, which just wrapped filming. Jon was seen last year in the highly successful "National Treasure,” with Nicolas Cage. He has been featured in "Pearl Harbor” and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” (starring his daughter, Angelina Jolie), and he has starred in "Mission: Impossible,” "Varsity Blues,” "Enemy of the State,” and "Anaconda.” Other feature-film credits include Francis Ford Coppola's "The Rainmaker” (Golden Globe® nominee), "The General,” "Deliverance,” "Runaway Train” (which earned him a third Academy Award® nomination and a Golden Globe®) and "The Odessa File” and "The Champ.”

Jon made his Broadway debut in "The Sound of Music.” In 1966, he starred opposite Robert Duvall in the acclaimed revival of Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge.” He later starred in "A Streetcar Named Desire” at L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre.

On television, Voight received unanimous critical accolades for his portrayal of the late Pope in CBS' "Pope John Paul II” and starred in Hallmark's celebrated "The Five People You Meet in Heaven.” He co-starred in NBC's "Uprising,” the true story of the Warsaw ghetto, and in "Jack & the Beanstalk: The Real Story,” a miniseries for CBS. Jon has starred in "Chernobyl: The Final Warning,” "The Last of His Tribe” (which earned him a Cable Ace Award) and the miniseries "Return to Lonesome Dove.” He made his directorial debut with the Showtime cable movie "The Tin Soldier,” which won several awards internationally, including "Best Children's Film” at the Berlin Film Festival.

Mr. Voight is a humanitarian who has been an advocate for American Indian rights and has worked on behalf of Vietnam veterans. He is currently active in a continuing effort to airlift children from the contaminated areas of Chernobyl, and he supports all charities of all races and religions.
