Episode InformationFrom an ordinary biology student, Malkovich becomes one of Hollywood‘s most important character actors. The name John Malkovich stands for acting like no other. His film successes, stoic manner, soft voice, and unbroken love of theater have shaped the workaholic into an international brand. But since „Being John Malkovich, “ it has been unclear: What is played when he appears in public, or how much of his person is always persona? Who is John Malkovich, really?
