He'll next be seen in "Secretariat,” reuniting with director Randall Wallace, and Robert Schwecke's "Red,” with Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman, both to be released this fall, as well as Michael Bay's "Transformers 3” releasing next year.

Malkovich has appeared on the big screen in over 70 feature films, including the Coen brothers' comedy "Burn After Reading”; "Changeling,” for director Clint Eastwood; Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf”; Spike Jonzes' "Being John Malkovich,” which earned Malkovich the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actor; John Dahl's "Rounders”; "The Man In the Iron Mask” for director Randall Wallace; Simon West's "Con Air”; "The Portrait of a Lady” for director Jane Campion; Wolfgang Petersen's "In the Line of Fire;” which garnered Malkovich a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award® nomination; Gary Sinise's "Of Mice and Men”; Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Sheltering Sky”; "Dangerous Liaisons” for director Stephen Frears; Steven Spielberg's "Empire of the Sun”; Paul Newman's "The Glass Menagerie”; "The Killing Fields” for director Roland Joffé; and Robert Benton's "Places in the Heart,” for which Malkovich received a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award® nomination as well as Best Supporting Actor Awards from the National Society of Film Critics and the National Board of Review.

Currently, Malkovich is producing the feature film "Jeff Who Lives at Home,” starring Susan Sarandon, through his banner Mr. Mudd, which most recently produced the highly acclaimed independent film "Juno,” nominated for three Academy® Awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. The film won an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay. Malkovich first produced "Ghost World,” directed by Terry Zwigoff, through the company, followed by his own feature directorial debut, "The Dancer Upstairs,” starring Academy Award® winner Javier Bardem. Other films produced through Mr. Mudd include "The Libertine,” starring Johnny Depp and Samantha Morton and "Art School Confidential,” also directed by Zwigoff and written by screenwriter/cartoonist Dan Clowes. 

Malkovich also served as Executive Producer on the documentary "How to Draw a Bunny,” a portrait of artist Ray Johnson, which won the Jury Prize at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival and the Prix de Public at the famed Recontre Film Festival in Paris. The film was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for best documentary in 2003.

Malkovich's work on stage began in 1976, when he became a charter member of the groundbreaking Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. He moved to New York City in 1982 to appear in a Steppenwolf production of the Sam Shepard play "True West,” for which he won an Obie Award. Malkovich then directed a Steppenwolf co-production, the 1984 revival of Lanford Wilson's "Balm in Gilead,” for which he received a second Obie Award and a Drama Desk Award. His Broadway debut was that year as Biff in "Death of a Salesman,” alongside Dustin Hoffman as Willy.

In late 2008, Malkovich directed Zach Helm's play "The Good Canary,” starring Diego Luna and produced by Mr. Mudd and Mexico's Canana. Enjoying a 15-week sold-out run touring through several major Mexican cities, its critical acclaim and financial success set a new precedent in Mexican theater.

Malkovich's mark in television includes his Emmy Award-winning performance in the telefilm "Death of a Salesman,” directed by Volker Schlöndorff and reuniting him with Dustin Hoffman, reprising their stage roles. Other notable credits include the miniseries "Les Meserables,” as well as "Napoleon” and the acclaimed HBO telefilm "RKO 281,” the latter two garnering Emmy Award nominations for Malkovich. He recently served as executive producer on "Which Way Home,” a documentary by Sundance award winner Rebecca Cammisa for HBO and Mr. Mudd.
