He had a successful career taking on challenging leading and character roles in a wide range of films and television shows. Voight is the father of actress Angelina Jolie and actor James Haven. Jonathan Vincent Voight was born in 1938 in Yonkers, New York. His father was Elmer Voytka, later Voight, a professional golfer, and his mother Barbara Kamp (Barbara Voight). His eldest brother Barry Voight, a volcanologist, was a geology professor at Penn State University. His younger brother is songwriter Wes Voight who, under the alias Chip Taylor, wrote The Troggs' 1966 smash hit 'Wild Thing'. Jon attended Archbishop Stepinac High School, an all-boy school in White Plains, NY. Voight began acting while in high school and earned in 1960 a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He moved to New York City and studied (1960–1964) under Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. Voight made his Broadway debut in 1961 in the role of Rolf in The Sound of Music. He continued working in theatre through most of the 1960s and in addition began making guest appearances on such television shows as Naked City, The Defenders, Coronet Blue, and Gunsmoke. Voight's film debut did not come until 1967, when he played the title role in the low-budget crimefighter spoof Fearless Frank (Phillip Kaufman, 1967). Voight also took a small role in the Western, Hour of the Gun (John Sturges, 1967), and a role in Out of It (Paul Williams, 1968).

Voight followed a lead role in the conventional thriller The Odessa File (Ronald Neame, 1974) with a moving portrayal of a paralysed Vietnam War veteran in the drama Coming Home (Hal Ashby, 1978) opposite Jane Fonda. It earned him Golden Globe and Oscar awards for best actor; the Cannes Festival also named him best actor for the role. He starred in the sports melodrama The Champ (Franco Zeffirelli, 1979) with Ricky Schroder. John Voight's output became sparse during the 1980s and early 1990s, although he won the Golden Globe and earned another Oscar nomination for best actor for his turn as an escaped convict in the thriller Runaway Train (Andrei Konchalovsky, 1985), opposite Eric Roberts. Voight made a comeback in Hollywood during the mid-1990s. He played Captain Woodrow Call in the TV miniseries Return to Lonesome Dove (Mike Robe, 1993) and starred opposite Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in Michael Mann's crime epic Heat (1995) .
