Jon Voight is reportedly considering a role as a KGB operative in a forthcoming biopic of President Ronald Reagan. According to HollywoodReporter.com, Voight is in talks for the role of Viktor, the spy tasked with keeping tabs on the 40th President of the United States.
The film, dubbed simple "Reagan," will be based on the books "The Crusader and God" and "Ronald Reagan," both by Paul Kengor. According to the author, Voight's possible role is actually an amalgamation of several real-life characters:
"Viktor is actually a character based on a number of KGB agents and Soviet analysts who we now know were tasked with keeping tabs on Ronald Reagan for many years," Kengor said. "This is a feature film and not a documentary and I thought it was a smart way for the producers to keep the integrity of the story and yet make it entertaining."
