Trivia that mentions this person:
National Treasure: Book of Secrets [2007]
  • Nicolas Cage has won an Academy Award (for Leaving Las Vegas), and the actor and actress who played his parents (Jon Voight and Helen Mirren) are also Academy Award winners (for Coming Home and The Queen, respectively).
  • Patrick Gates makes a reference to FDR during World War Two. Jon Voight played Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Pearl Harbor.
    The Shining [1980]
  • Stephen King tried to talk Stanley Kubrick out of casting Jack Nicholson in the lead suggesting, instead, either [?] Michael Moriarty or Jon Voight. King had felt that watching either of these normal-looking men gradually descend into madness, would have immensely improved the dramatic thrust of the storyline.
    Superman: The Movie [1978]
  • Numerous actors were considered for the part of Superman/Clark Kent: Warren Beatty, James Caan, Kris Kristofferson, Nick Nolte, Robert Redford, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jon Voight, with the front-runners being Nolte and Voight after the role was turned down by Beatty and Redford. Among the unknowns tested for the role were Ilya Salkind's wife's dentist (footage of the dentist testing for the part of Superman can, in fact, be seen in the supplemental section of the DVD). Eventually, the Salkinds cast an almost unknown actor they kept coming back to from earlier in their search - Christopher Reeve (who had only one other film and a television soap opera to his credit).
    Superman: The Movie: Expanded Edition [2000]
  • Numerous actors were considered for the part of Superman/Clark Kent: Warren Beatty, James Caan, Kris Kristofferson, Nick Nolte, Robert Redford, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jon Voight, with the front-runners being Nolte and Voight after the role was turned down by Beatty and Redford. Among the unknowns tested for the role were Ilya Salkind's wife's dentist (footage of the dentist testing for the part of Superman can, in fact, be seen in the supplemental section of the DVD). Eventually, the Salkinds cast an almost unknown actor they kept coming back to from earlier in their search - Christopher Reeve (who had only one other film and a television soap opera to his credit).
    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation [2015]
  • Tom Cruise is only five years younger in this film than Jon Voight was in the original Mission Impossible film.
    Lara Croft: Tomb Raider [2001]
  • Lara Croft's father is played by Angelina Jolie's real life father, actor Jon Voight.
    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them [2016]
  • The film cast includes two Oscar winners: Eddie Redmayne and Jon Voight; and two Oscar nominees: Samantha Morton and Johnny Depp.
    Holes [2003]
  • Dulé Hill played Sam. He later appeared as Shawn's ([?] James Roday's) co-star, Gus, on the television show [Psych (2006)]. In the episode "65 Million Years Off" when seeing all the holes that the paleontologist dug on the land, Shawn mentions "that this is like that movie with Sigourney Weaver". He also mentions Shia LaBeouf and Jon Voight. Gus keeps guessing movies, but never correctly guesses the movie that he appeared in, Holes (2003).
