From the way Jon Voight gushes over his grandchildren (ya know, the babes of the world's most famous power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) you would never know he and daughter Angie had a six-year falling out.

And we're so relieved they've worked it all out, because who else better to spill some dish on all those cute kiddos…well, besides Brangelina themselves, of course!  

So, does Grandpa Jon think any of the adorable tots have a future in H'wood?


When we asked Jon whether he saw a future in acting for his grandkids, he responded without any hesitation:

"I do actually," he spilled with a smirk at the G'Day USA Black Tie Gala Saturday night.

No surprise there! After all, acting definitely runs in the genes of this famous fam and we would love to see any of the adorable kiddos on the big screen.

So did Jon reveal which one of the brood is most likely to fill ma and pa's giant acting shoes?

"I don't want to say, but I have a feeling that they will," he admitted. "I have no doubt."

And even though he refused to dish any specifics on the kids, we had to ask G-pa if he has any fears for the young ones if they do decide to try their hand at entertainment—especially since Angelina has never been shy about her troubled time as a young actress.

But rest assured, Mr. Voight suggests just the opposite:

"Hollywood should be afraid of them," he gushed. "These guys are really something."

All together now: Awwww!

Voight continues: "I try to give them support as Brad and Angie do…they really let these kids be who they are."

Too friggin' cute, right?! If only we could fast forward to the days when adorable Shiloh and Zahara will strut the red carpet—here's hoping!
