Jon Voight stars in "Ray Donovan" on Showtime as Mickey Donovan.

Jon Voight is still remembered for the classic "Midnight Cowboy" which brought his first Academy Award nomination, as well as his Oscar-winning turn as Luke Martin in "Coming Home." Since then, Voight has forged a career in which he successfully transitioned from leading man to one of America's most versatile character actors.

Voight recently starred with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn in the comedy "Four Christmases"; alongside Kelsey Grammer and Leslie Nielsen in David Zucker's comedy "An American Carol"; with Edward Norton and Colin Farrell in the crime drama "Pride and Glory"; opposite Shia LaBeouf in Michael Bay's "Transformers"; with Nicholas Cage in "National Treasure" and its sequel, "National Treasure: Book of Secrets"; and with Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep in Jonathan Demme's "The Manchurian Candidate." Voight also played Mr. Sir in the popular and critically acclaimed Andy Davis feature film "Holes," based on the Newberry Award winning book of the same name.

Voight has been featured in "Ali" for which he was Oscar nominated for his portrayal of Howard Cosell, "Pearl Harbor" and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (starring with his daughter Angelina Jolie), and 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, "The Odessa File," and "The Champ" (Golden Globe nominee).

Voight 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." Voight later starred at LA's Ahmanson Theatre in "A Streetcar Named Desire."

On television, Voight recently starred in FOX's short-lived critically acclaimed drama series "Lone Star" and played the recurring role of Jonas Hodges in "24." Voight also starred in the powerful, critically acclaimed film, "Jasper Texas." Based on actual events, "Jasper Texas" tells the disturbing story of a heinous racial crime in which a black man was dragged to his death in a small Texas town.

Voight also co-starred in "Uprising," the true story of the Warsaw ghetto for NBC, and in "Jack & The Beanstalk: The Real Story," a miniseries for CBS. He 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, including Best Children's Film at the Berlin Film Festival.
