LOS ANGELES - Jon Voight has endorsed Donald Trump, calling the Republican front-runner "an answer to our problems" and for the party to unite behind him, according to a statement and interview he gave to Breitbart News.

Voight has been outspoken in support of conservative candidates and in opposition to President Obama, and has taken an active role in politics with appearances at the last two GOP conventions.

"I, Jon Voight, can say, without hesitation, that Donald is funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all he is honest," he said in a statement he gave to Breitbart News. "When he decided to run for president, I know he did it with a true convictions to bring this country back to prosperity. He is the only one who can do it. No frills, no fuss, only candid truths."

He added, "There are many Republicans fighting to keep him from winning the Republican nomination. You know why? Because he has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits. They never dreamed they would be losing control."

Trump has drawn support from entertainment figures such as "Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson, while Ted Cruz just received the backing of Chuck Norris. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will succeed Trump on "The Apprentice," endorsed John Kasich on Sunday.
