As the race for the GOP nomination grows more competitive with each caucus, on Wednesday Piers Morgan invited actor Jon Voight to share his political views. In his first interview since publicly endorsing Mitt Romney, the Academy Award winner explained why he backs the Republican front-runner:
"He's a fellow who shoots from the hip. He's a very charitable fellow as you probably know. And he's warm, honest. He's got great virtues."
According to Voight, Romney's values can be traced back through generations: "He is a true American. He loves America. And his entire family has always followed the true American way of hard work and success."
As the sit-down continued, Morgan asked the Hollywood legend why Romney hasn't been all that accessible of late: "Can you put a good word in, because he won't come on again," said Morgan. "And I'm not sure why."
Voight promised to do his best: "I don't know. I'll talk to him about you."
