Angelina Jolie's father hangs out with Romney family

Actor Jon Voight, a longtime supporter of the GOP, is in Tampa speaking to delegates and hanging out with the Romney family.

Tagg Romney tweeted a photo of himself, Voight, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Julie Chaffetz addressing the Virginia delegation Monday morning.

Several official convention events were canceled because of Tropical Storm Isaac, but most of the delegations held their morning meetings.

Voight introduced Romney at the event and posed for pictures with delegates, according to sightings on Twitter.

The actor, the father of Angelina Jolie, also attended the 2008 Republican National Convention in Minneapolis.

And he has ties to vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. In 2009, Voight attended a major GOP fundraiser in Washington, where he was introduced by the Wisconsin lawmaker.

“One of the most courageous acts in our society today is to stand up in Hollywood and say you're a conservative Republican,” Ryan said of the actor.
