Jon Voight Joins 'Midland' Pilot

Jon Voight has signed on as a lead in Fox’s drama pilot Midland.

According to THR. Midland “centers on Bob (Jimmy Wolk), a con artist juggling two lives in two Texas cities with two women (Adrianne Palicki, Eloise Mumford), one of whom (Palicki), is the daughter of a Texas legend (Voight), described as a gravely voiced titan equally at home in boots or a three-piece suit.”

This would be Voight‘s first regular TV series role. He most recently had an arc as villain Jonas Hodges on the seventh season of 24.

    Good for you, JV. I hope your time with your daughter, son, Brad and those precious 6 grandchildren have soften your extreme views. Frankly, you would have a lot more fans if you would lighten up. Good luck on “Midland”.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE IT TAKES ONE SECOND TO DO!

    Hey guys!!! Will you please Google ” Save Better off Ted” and it should be the second link down at ” go petition” and you don’t have to register to sign it. It stars Ellen D’s wifey Portia de Rossi. It’s a great show, it just didn’t get a good time slot, or good promotion. Thanks so much!!!!!

    Sorry, Ellen kisses Aniston’s butt and until Jen and the media quits allowing her to manipulate the fans and public…will boycott. Sick of someone propping of their pity story and career while using something that happened 5 years ago, including their children. Oprah, Ellen, various talk shows let her get away with the pity party.

    Glad to hear this – Jon Voight is a good actor and has done loads of stuff — seems he is always working. And yes all three of the Jolie Pitt bilogical children look like Jon voight – nothing wront with that they are his grandchildren.

    TRUTH AS U SEE IT Says:

    The J-P kids look more like Brad Pitt than their grandfather…..It just seems like they look more like him because of Brads light coloring mixed with Angelina’s features combined. The kids look more like Brad…especially with their expressions. Sometimes when Shilo’s smiles she looks like Angelina…

    __

    I think that some of the people who make comments saying that all the kids look like the grandfather are just trying to cut Brad out of the picture and disrespect him. They also know that in the past Angie has not gotten along with her father, so they are attempting to interject John Voight into the conversation. FAIL. Of course the resemblance of the grandfather Voight is in the kids, but NOT more than to the extent that Brad and Angelina’s resemblance is…. THAT’S WHY YOU GET THUMBS DOWN….
