By Eric Kelsey BEVERLY HILLS Calif. (Reuters) – When Jon Voight joined the growing list of top-flight film actors on television last year as a small-time Boston gangster on drama “Ray Donovan,” he felt the role of the aging family patriarch take him back to his early days as a character actor. The 75-year-old’s return to his acting roots as Mickey Donovan, the cynical father of a Hollywood fixer in the series now in its second season on the premium cable network Showtime, has also given him a chance to join the rare club of actors who have an Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy awards. He spoke to Reuters about the benefits of television, what makes a good lead actor and how he always wanted to work with Liev Schreiber, a reluctant leading man. Q: Did you have any reservations about doing a television series at this stage in your career?
