Jon Voight was born on December 29, 1938 in New York, United States, of Slovakian descent. The famous American actor first came to prominence, and is perhaps still best known, for his role of Joe Buck in the film “Midnight Cowboy”(1969), for which Voight received an Oscar Award nomination. Voight`s talent has been further acknowledged by receiving two Golden Globe awards. Jon is also known for being the father of the very famous American actress Angelina Jolie.

Although his father, Elmer, was a golfer, Jon became interested in an acting career in his youth. Hence, when he was a teenager, Jon already hoped that acting would become the leading source of his net worth. His debut in the film industry is considered to be “Fearless Frank”, released in 1965. Following this success, Jon kept on increasing his net worth with performances in other movies as well as acting in plays on Broadway. Jon Voight’s net worth was boosted with large incomes from starring in such movies as “Hour of the Gun”, “Out of It”, “Deliverance”, and “The Revolutionary”. Jon’s net worth also increased after appearances in “Enemy of the State”, “Pearl Harbor”, “Mission: Impossible” and “12 O`Clock High”.
