JOHN MALKOVICH (Humma Kavula) is one of his generation's leading actors and an important figure in world cinema. In 1976, Malkovich helped to make theatrical history when he co-founded the soon-to-be-famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. Seven years later, he won an Obie Award when the Steppenwolf production of Sam Shephard's "True West” was brought to New York. His next New York theatrical appearance was on Broadway alongside Dustin Hoffman in the 1984 revival of "Death of a Salesman.” (This same production was transformed into a telefilm one year later, and Malkovich won an Emmy® for his portrayal of Biff Loman.) While he was working on Broadway, he made his film debut, playing a blind transient in "Places in the Heart,” which earned him an Academy Award® nomination. That same year, he had a starring role in the highly acclaimed "The Killing Fields.”

John Malkovich went on to be acclaimed for his portrayal of Vicomte de Valmont in "Dangerous Liaisons” and to receive both Golden Globe® and Oscar® nominations as a harrowing political assassin in "In the Line of Fire.” Maintaining his theatrical ties while tending to his successful film career, he appeared in the 1993 Broadway production "State of Shock” and has periodically returned to Chicago to both act and direct. Known also as an accomplished director and producer, he most recently directed and produced "The Dancer Upstairs” starring Javier Bardem. John Malkovich's producing credits include "The Libertine,” "Ghost World,” "The Loner,” "The Fun Seller” and "Found in the Street.” He also is producing and stars in Terry Zwigoff's forthcoming "Art School Confidential.”

His recent film roles include a comic turn in "Johnny English” and playing King Charles II in "The Libertine.” He will also be seen in the forthcoming "Color Me Kubrick” and will star as the artist Gustav Klimt in "Klimt” with Stephen Dillane.
