You have questions. Jon Voight has answers.
More than 25 years after the premiere of "Runaway Train," Voight is back in Alaska this winter to film an Anchorage-based, supernatural thriller. Tentatively titled "Ghost Vision," the movie stars Voight as a semi-retired Anchorage police detective investigating the disappearance of a young girl.
Something spooky is going on in the story, but Voight won't say exactly what.
"He's a pretty straightforward guy," Voight said of the role. "You know A little wry. Tough. Interesting character. Clint could play the ass off this guy."
On a day off from shooting, the 71-year-old actor spent an hour Friday talking on a range of topics: Moviemaking in Anchorage. Why shooting here reminds him of making "Deliverance." And why he believes Sarah Palin -- yes he'd vote Palin for president -- "saved Alaska" when she resigned as governor.
The "Ghost Vision" cast also includes Dermot Mulroney, who recently wrapped "Everybody Loves Whales," as Voight's police captain. Teri Polo, who plays Ben Stiller's on-screen wife in the upcoming "Little Fockers," portrays the mother of the abducted girl, he said.
A veteran of 75 films and TV shows, from "Midnight Cowboy" to Fox's "24," Voight's known to modern political junkies as an outspoken critic of President Obama and to the TMZ set as Angelina Jolie's father.
In person? Tall and old-school polite. And as eager to talk politics as moviemaking.
