Jon Voight Facts
His father Elmer Voytka, later Voight (born 29 Oct 1909 and died June 1973), was a professional golfer.

In 1993, he took over the role of "Woodrow F. Call" from Tommy Lee Jones in "Return to Lonesome Dove" (1993). Three years later, he was succeeded by Jonny Lee Miller, who played the younger version of Call in "Dead Man's Walk" (1996). That same year, Miller married Voight's daughter, Angelina Jolie, making Voight a short-term father-in-law to his own successor.

Godparents of his daughter Angelina are Maximilian Schell and Jacqueline Bisset.
