Jon Voight now
Jonathan Vincent Voight will be 75 in December

(AP) – It was Jon Voight’s portrayal of male prostitute Joe Buck in the 
1969 film "Midnight Cowboy" that put him on his path to becoming an
acting legend. Now he says he was paid a pittance for the part.

Voight says that he wanted the role so badly he told his agent, "I said,
‘Tell them I’ll do this part for nothing.’" The actor says to his surprise,
"they took me at my word and they gave me minimum for ‘Midnight
Cowboy.’"

Voight spoke Wednesday as he was promoting his film "Getaway"
co-starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez that opens Aug. 30
and "Ray Donovan," the Showtime series he appears in opposite
Liev Schreiber.

The Oscar- and Emmy-winning actor says the studio United Artists
"even sent me a $14.73 coffee shop charge," for meals his last day
of shooting for the film in Texas.
