John Malkovich appreciation

I've decided to watch some movies/shows with him in it. He's such a distinct quirky character.

Oh, he's great. Being John Malkovich is of course the first film that you think of. Dangerous Liaisons is also good. There's so many films that he was in, but these are the first that come to my mind.

John Malkovitch is one of those rare actors like Gary Oldman who can immerse themselves so completely into a character role you forget that they're acting...

My favourite movie of his is Con Air. And I'm not even joking about that. Great movie, Con Air.

Aw, with my other favorite quirky actor Nicholas Cage, I loved that movie.


It's hard having favs in this day and age if one doesn't keep up with who's is in trouble for what, so, if either one of these guys are on somebody's cancel list, I'm pleading Jon Snow.

Daniel Craig is another one. I once watched a movie where he played a professor and I didn't even think about James Bond for one second.

Watch Of Mice and Men where he played Lennie. It's really surprised me he doesn't do a lot of straightforward serious roles with his . There's always a quirk in the characters he plays.

He was funny in Red. But what put him in my mind were the shows New Pope and Space Force, I'm liking him in both roles though SF is getting bad reviews I don't see why, maybe too silly for such a strong cast, its no sillier than Avenue 5.

Loved him as Lenny and in Being John Malkovich.
