Best Jon Voight Performances

The Top TenXW

1Midnight Cowboy

He was perfection in this movie. His performance as Joe Buck is one of my favourite performances by an actor or actress in general. I still believe that he should have won an Academy Award and not just an Oscar nomination for this one.

2The Champ

What an emotional movie and another great and memorable performance from Jon.

4The Odessa File

One of his best performances. A true classic.

5Runaway Train

He was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Actually this is a very suspenseful and interesting movie. He did a great job here, as well.

As much as I love The Champ, Runaway Train is definitely his best film. Absolutely brilliant. The ending is so bittersweet.
Great list! - Britgirl


What an underrated movie and performance, Simply riveting!


If you haven't seen this one, you should find a way and watch it. It's a marvelous film.


A very peculiar movie, I found his performance very memorable in Catch-22.


He is unrecognizable in 'Ali'. Naturally, he received his fourth Oscar nomination for this movie.


I'm not fond of this film, but he gave a great performance for it.

The Contenders


Incredibly Creepy and dark character very under appreciated film and performance by Jon voight!
