I never really cared for Jon Voight as an actor.

Now, I guess I don't have to worry about watching anything he does. Idiot.

1. Haven't watched him for years.

Not since he was a big fan of the bushes and was all in for Iraq war.

2. He was pretty good in Coming Home

But, there are several actors who i like who, politically, suck balls. And musicians (but NOT Nugent - he was sucking balls when he first came out - an alleged "power-popper" who was lame as fuck from the beginning).

5. I absolutely swear...

I read it first as "power-pooper". I supposed it could go either way.

6. He was great..

..won an Oscar for it, I believe. That said, his politics are the pits.

3. I thought he was great...

… years ago. One of the best actors from the 1970s. I know he's continued to act, but I don't really see him in anything - so, I'm not sure... and I have no desire to look at any of his work, anymore. Voight has been talking weird for several years, now, from what I hear...

8. Hmm. I guess it's just my personal taste.

Something about his voice or something. I've just never cared for any of his performances that I've seen.

7. He's terrific in Ray Donovan

Probably the best actor in the show, in a very good cast.

10. He and Susan Sarandon probably have some interesting talks.

Two wacky actors.

11. I did when he was young. Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance, Conrack.

After that he fades from relevance for me. But boy is he a dick. And that video looks like someone had a gun to his dog’s head.

13. Some of us are able to separate an actor's performance from his politics.
