American actor Jon Voight is of German and Slovak ancestry. He was last nominated for the award for his performance as escaped criminal Oscar “Manny” Manheim in “Runaway Train,” which he played as an ambitious gigolo in “Midnight Cowboy” (1969).
(1985). For his performance as sports journalist Howard Cosell (1918-1995) in the movie “Ali,” he was also nominated for an Oscar Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Performance (2001).
For his performance as paraplegic Vietnam War veteran Luke Martin in the war movie “Coming Home,” he received the Oscar Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (1978).
In the 1967 superhero comedy “Fearless Frank,” in which he played the title character, Voight made his acting debut. Frank was portrayed as a murder victim who was revived and given superhuman abilities by a scientist.
In the Western movie “Hour of the Gun,” Voiight played legendary gunman and bandit Curly Bill Brocius (1845–1882). (1967). Wyatt Earp killed the historical Brocius, who was a foe of the Earp family (1848-1929).
But he nevertheless succeeds in a more liberal society thanks to the influence of his Oscars and the reputation he’s built.
Yet that doesn’t change the fact that he is who he is. He attacked Whoopi Goldberg on a recent episode of his podcast, “The Truth About Us with Jon Voight.” The Pearl Harbor legend was speaking about the talk show host.
If you don’t like it here, get the f**k out of here!
Voight replied, “I don’t know what her problem is. The people of Israel have been through so much and have battled back out of their love for God and Benjamin Netanyahu, and she can’t seem to take it.
We questioned Mr. Voight about whether he had any more specific instances of his anger towards Goldberg. He remarked, “If we were in a Ray Donovan episode, I’d go Mickey on her because she’s on the left, which is a very risky and selfish place to be.”
Without a doubt, Jon Voight has earned the right to rage about Israel. He has every right to hold the opinions he does about politics. Whatever anyone says, he was the one who approved the Doolittle Raid, and history will never forget that.
