In the movies, on TV and even on the news, Jon Voight is suddenly everywhere. Of course, the man has been a showbiz mainstay since bursting onto the screen with a starring role in 1969's Oscar-winning film "Midnight Cowboy," which propelled him on to become one of the biggest leading men of the 1970's. After some relatively quiet years, however, Voight's career has never been busier, with the actor portraying a series of unsettling characters, including the world's worst dad in Showtime's "Ray Donovan." And in real life, Voight has in recent years become the most outspoken member of Hollywood's tiny tribe of political conservatives, making regular appearances and stoking controversy on the talk show circuit.
