With the new millennium, John Malkovich only became more prolific and hence better known. His first role in the 2000s was as a psychotic version of the German Expressionist director F. W. Murnau opposite Willem Dafoe’s Max Shreck in Shadow of the Vampire. Another iconic albeit fictional character followed with his take on Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley in Ripley’s Game. In 2008, he was part of an ensemble of idiots in the Coen Brothers’ Burn After Reading. In the same year, he collaborated with Clint Eastwood for a second time in Changeling. In the 2010s, Malkovich took a wide variety of supporting turns in films such as Warm Bodies, Deepwater Horizon, Mile 22 and Velvet Buzzsaw. He shows no signs of slowing down with roughly 10 projects due for release.
