“I intend to be, and we’ll see come convention time if [the Trump campaign] wants me at the convention. If they do, I’ll make plans to go, and we’ll go from there," he continued. 
 
Voight endorsed Trump in March, calling the outspoken businessman a "patriot" as he worked to lock up the GOP nomination. Trump's final GOP rivals dropped out in early May, and he's slated to officially be declared the party's nominee at its convention in late July.
 
The Oscar winner and longtime Republican attended the GOP conventions in 2008 and 2012.
 
"I would like to support him in any way that I can … I’m in touch with the campaign, and I fully support Donald. I think he’s the man for the job," Voight said. "I have discussed with them the possibility of being at the convention, and what I might be available to do for them in California.”
 
Political parties often attempt to attract star power to conventions to draw additional attention. Clint Eastwood speaking to an empty chair was a highlight of the 2012 Republican convention. 
 
Democrats this year are reportedly pushing to secure Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator and star of the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton," to appear at their convention next month.
