Jon Voight

Career & Biographical Notes:
  • Turned down a lead role in Jaws, for which Richard Dreyfuss is eternally grateful.
  • Almost wound up being Superman instead of Christopher Reeve. The only two people in the world a studio exec could choose that would make for a worse Superman would be Brandon Routh and Tom Welling.
  • Won an Academy Award for Best Actor in Coming Home. Was also nominated in same category for Midnight Cowboy and Runaway Train. Was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Howard Cosell in Ali. Shockingly overlooked for his work in Varsity Blues, Zoolander and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
  • Even he has no idea how daughter Angelina came out so freakin' hot.
