Monsters, Inc. John Malkovich is about to play a dictator. Time to talk bad guys



+ POWER PLAY: The actor John Malkovich, who’ll soon be on tour as the ictional totalitarian Satur Diman Cha.

JOHN MALKOVICH is very good at being bad. His Broadway breakthrough came in 1984 when, aged 31, he played the easygoing football lunk Biff in Death of a Salesman, and he’s said that his favorite part was poor, tragic Lennie in Of Mice and Men (1992). But that’s not what he’s remembered for. Think of Malkovich and odds are, you’ll picture his languid sexual predator Valmont, blotting Michelle Pfeifer’s innocence just for the hell of it in Dangerous Liaisons (1988), or Mitch Leary, wheedling and psychotic in In the Line of Fire (1993). Now, though, he’s really getting into bad, the kind of bad that steps out of the movies and messes up real life: He’s about to play a dictator.

About Newsweek International

TERROR THREAT: HOW TRUMP IS FUELLING JIHAD Since the horrors of 9/11, American presidents operating under the advice of the intelligence community’s counter terrorism experts have understood that countering this propaganda has been among the most essential parts of the fight against ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other murderous Jihadi extremists. Through carefully selected language and for the most part considered policy, the United States has worked to expose the lies and convince young Muslims drawn by the propaganda toward hate that they are welcome and appreciated in America. That era appears to be over. President Donald Trump, in office for less than two months, has gutted the strategy used by Republicans and Democrats alike out of ignorance, hubris or both, sending a new message from the White House, one that reinforces the Jihadi extremists’ propaganda and increases the likelihood that more Americans will die in attacks.
