Jon Voight is a busy man.

I play a teacher in the south and it’s a great picture so that’s one of hers, so I like it because of that.” Then Voight referenced his acting past — and perhaps future — with his daughter. “But I also liked working with Angie when I did Tomb Raider and I hope I get to work with her again.
