JOHN MALKOVICH (Athos), one of America's most gifted actors of stage and screen, was born in Benton, Illinois. Directly out of college, he joined the famed Steppenwolf Theater Company of Chicago. Between 1976 and 1982, he acted in, directed, or designed the sets for more than fifty Steppenwolf productions. His debut on the New York stage in the Steppenwolf production of Sam Shepard's "True West" earned him an Obie award. Other notable stage credits include "Death of a Salesman," "Slip of the Tongue," Sam Shepard's "States of Shock," Lanford Wilson's "Burn This" and his own adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "Libra."

Malkovich has made his mark on film audiences in features such as Roland Joffe's The Killing Fields, Robert Benton's Places in the Heart, Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, Stephen Frears's Dangerous Liaisons and Mary Reilly, Bernardo Bertolucci's The Sheltering Sky and Wolfgang Petersen's In the Line of Fire. More recently, he has worked with top European directors Manoel de Oliviera (The Convent) and Michelangelo Antonioni (Beyond the Clouds). His latest films include Lee Tamahori's Mulholland Falls and Volker Schondorff's The Ogre.

Malkovich most recently starred opposite Nicole Kidman as Gilbert Osmond in Jane Campion's critically-acclaimed Portrait of a Lady and as Cyrus the Virus opposite Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in the hit film Con Air.

Together with partner (and Man in the Iron Mask producer) Russell Smith, Malkovich formed a film production company in 1994 and plans to direct and produce various film projects in the near future.
