What are you thoughts of him as an actor?

He can be really great, but also very affected.
He was horribly miscast in Dangerous Liassons. While he did get the slimy bit, I couldn't imagine anyone risking anything to sleep with him.

He's a creep. I like him.

Didn't he become a Christian nutjob?

He has real range for someone with such a unique way of speaking. He's very funny in Burn After Reading, a repulsive creep in Dangerous Liaisons and believable as a crazy person in Color Me Kubrick.

My 20something year old female friend finds him hot.

Fugaleeeeee. So miscast as Valmont. I have seen him in a few comedies and I thought he was funny.

I liked him in Glass Menagerie and, of course, he was most excellent in In the Line of Fire.

He's too impressed with himself and a terrible ACT-TOR

Totally overrated. Can only play creeps and weirdos and he's mediocre at that.
Plus he's friends with the slime bag Charlie Sheen so you can imagine what he must be like in his personal life.

Agree with R1. The one time I thought he was great was onstage in Burn This. He was a very good Biff in Death Of A Salesman with Dustin Hoffman (who wasn't so great).
On film I've preferred him in more comic roles but he was fine in Glass Menagerie, Shadow Of The Vampire, and Ripley's Game.
Agree he was miscast in Dangerous Liaisons, and even more so in Portrait Of A Lady. His creepiness is much too obvious.

He’s fun, he’s game. I miss him!

He's not dead R13, lol.
I had the total hots for him in Con Air.

John Malkovich is overly mannered, too self-aware, cannot convey spontaneity or the process of thought, and behaves generally as if he thinks the cold glass dildo up his ass ought to be thanking him for the privilege.

R15, sounds like you're describing M.

I remember seeing him at Steppenwolf in the early 80s—he was mesmerizing onstage back then.

John Malkovich actually was quite good IMHO in Le Temps retrouvé, a 1999 French drama film directed by the Chilean filmmaker Raúl Ruiz.

Say what you will but the man has an impressive C.V.; John Malkovich literally has been working steadily for decades with no signs of letting up.

He can be a very funny weirdo, and Being John Malkovich wouldn't exist without him, so he gets my stamp of approval.

Fascinating actor: I have vivid memories of his performance in “True West.”

He was the best Ripley thus far
|by Anonymous||reply 26||04/07/2021|
He was great in Ripley's Game. Dennis Hopper was also a great Ripley in The American Friend. Matt Damon too. The role his very generous.
Malkovich is interesting stylistically and I once thought very fuckable.
I liked those cheesy thrillers he made with Helen Mirren. Red, Red 2

I loved him in Dangerous Liasons. He had a very brief period of attractiveness, alas.

He’s such a good actor. I just saw him in The New Pope a few months back, he was in usual peak form.

Loved him in that jewel thief movie.

Aged badly. I thought r19’s picture was John Waters.

Apparently Malkovich is the one who recruited John Mahoney for Steppenwolf. The troupe needed someone who could play the older roles. Mahoney had just started acting after leaving his job as a medical journal editor in midlife. I used to see them occasionally at a restaurant in Oak Park.

Decent actor, but I spend absolutely zero time thinking about him.

Too creepy/queeny for my taste, though he can be very funny.

Saw him on Broadway as Biff in "Death of a Salesman"...excellent (far out paced Dustin Hoffman as Willy.

He has always given me the creeps.

I think he's a very talented actor underneath it all, but I can't bear to watch him because of his looks and mannerisms. He's probably much easier to take onstage, from a distance.

He's actually endearing in Making Mr. Right.

I liked him in Dangerous Liasons. Sometimes women are attracted to weird looking creeps. Just look at all of the attractive models who fuck rock stars. Most of those guys are disgusting, yet they have gorgeous women fighting over them.

He played Hercule Poiret in a recent tv version of The ABC Murders. He certainly doesn't match any physical description of H.P. in the novels and the idea of having a fabricated back story set during WW I with him as a traumatized Belgian priest is weird. Christie always described her "funny, little man" as serving with the Belgian police force before his exile in England.
