According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Voight has inked a deal as a lead in Fox's new pilot Midland.

David Keith is co-starring in this show to be directed by Marc Webb.

The show follows Bob (Jimmy Wolk), "a con artist juggling two lives in two Texas cities with two women (Adrianne Palicki, Eloise Mumford), one of whom (Palicki), is the daughter of a Texas legend (Voight)." He is said to be a gravely voiced big shot that can easily wear boots or a three-piece suit.

Keith is going to play Bob's con-man father.

Voight most recently completed a portion of the seventh season of 24. He played bad guy Jonas Hodges.
