Jon Voight Calls His 'Ray Donovan' Sex Scenes 'Disgusting'


'You take an old guy and throw him in there-come on!' the Oscar and Golden Globe Awards-winning actor says of his NSFW scenes on the Showtime series.

Jon Voight may have scored a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of Micky Donovan on "Ray Donovan", but he doesn't embrace all aspects of his character, particularly the ex-con's penchant for women's booties. Commenting on his sex scenes on the show, he says, "It's disgusting. You take an old guy and throw him in there-come on!"

Still, the 75-year-old actor enjoys working on the hit series. "It's fun," he recently told E! News. "We're all enjoying it. The actors I work with are terrific." In another interview with Zap2it, he praised lead star Liev Schreiber who plays the titular character. "I've always thought of Liev as a leading man," Voight said.

The father of actress Angelina Jolie continued, "As I've looked at his work over the last several years - since I worked with him on [the 2004 remake of] 'The Manchurian Candidate' - it's really been extraordinary, but I'd see him play the second character here or the third character there. I wanted to see him as No. 1 on the call sheet. I wanted to see a piece played through his eyes."

"Then this came up, and when they said Liev was attached to it, that was a big incentive for me to do it. I just felt this was 'it,' what I'd been dreaming about in a sense to put him forward. He's just amazing in this; he's got all the ingredients ... danger, emotional power, intelligence, sensitivity, romance. They're all the things a great leading man has."

"Ray Donovan" airs Sundays at 9 P.M. ET/PT on Showtime. The crime drama series has been renewed for a 12-episode third season to air next year.
