PORTRAIT

Selective, searching and sensitive leading man whose career peaked during the 1970s with award-winning performances in films such as Deliverance, Coming Home (for which he won a triplet of awards at the Golden Globes, the Oscars and at Cannes) and The Champ. Before this, the boyishly handsome Voight had made his breakthrough alongside Dustin Hoffman in John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy. Despite his star status, however, his output was fairly low all through the 1970s and 1980s, as Voight often went his own way in terms of picking roles and directors to work with. His star had faded somewhat when he made a triumphant return with Runaway Train in 1985. From the 1990s and on, Voight has been seen mostly in supporting roles, and often in more mainstream movies than before, such as Heat, Mission: Impossible, Pearl Harbour and Ali, for which he won his final Academy Award nomination to date. Voight is the father of actress Angelina Jolie.
