John Malkovich Has a Secret: He Cut His Brother's Throat With a Butcher Knife (VIDEO)

John Malkovich Has a Secret: He Cut His Brother's Throat With a Butcher KnifeJohn Malkovich is a very intense actor. He excels at playing unconventional roles: loners, doomed romantics, even murderers. He's a bit creepy in real life as well. On the 'Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM on CBS), John does a good job of freaking Craig Ferguson out. Why is the host so nervous? Because John confesses that he nearly killed his own brother -- and it's a true story.

Ferguson starts off with a totally normal question. He asks what John has been up to lately. Mr. Malkovich replies that he starred in an opera about an Austrian serial killer. Okay, that's weird. Craig wants to know if John can sing -- since singing is a requirement if you're in an opera. "... Um, no," John says. He's in a musical but he can't sing. This is getting weirder.

Here's George Clooney getting crushed by a piano

You don't see George Clooney doing commercials in the U.S. (except for some voice overs) but like a lot of celebrities he does them overseas. Like this ad for Nestle Nespresso.

It's never explained, however, why John Malkovich is greeting him in heaven. Unless it's not supposed to be Malkovich and is just a character he's playing.

Saturday Night Live: John Malkovich/T.I. - VIDEOS

John Malkovich
(S34E10)
The majority of this episode was pretty good. John Malkovich didn't contain the same contagious energy as other hosts this season, like Anne Hathaway or Tim McGraw, but infused the episode with his own... Malkovich-ness. Anyone that has seen his work knows what I'm talking about. I especially liked it when he introduced the musical guest(s), because it was hilariously obvious that he's never heard of any of these guys. Speaking of the musical guests, does T.I. really have a song about waving Gucci scarves in the air instead of dancing at the club? I feel like that's more of a surefire way to get shot at a club than carrying a gun in your sweatpants.

CSI lands Laurence Fishburne

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 18th 2008 2:29PM
Larry FAs Jane wrote a couple of weeks ago, CBS was hot on the heels of landing a big name star to fill the void when William Petersen leaves CSI later this year. The names bandied about included Kurt Russell and John Malkovich, and one other major motion picture star, Laurence Fishburne. Today, the network announced Laurence Fishburne will indeed be the new addition to CSI.

His character is a forensic scientist, like Grissom, but don't expect him to have Gil's fascination with insects. No, Fishburne's man has other bugs: he's a former pathologist and college lecturer who's focused on why people commit acts of violence. It should be interesting to see how his preoccupation with the why integrates with the other CSI gang who are all Grissom-trained and generally obsessed with how a crime is done and who done it.

Fishburne will be introduced in the ninth episode when his character meets members of the CSI team during a murder investigation and ends up joining them.

Laurence Fishburne in talks for CSI

by Jane Boursaw, posted Aug 6th 2008 8:03AM
Laurence Fishburne tapped for CSICSI fans have been clutching their hearts in agony upon learning that William Petersen would be leaving the role of brainy crimebuster Gil Grissom. I don't watch CSI regularly, and even I know that he's the heart of the show.

Petersen will be returning for occasional guest appearances, but will the show ever be the same? Maybe not, but it doesn't have to die a slow, painful death either.

Laurence Fishburne is in talks to succeed Peterson as the star of the show, and I think he has the chops to do it. His monologue in the feature film Bobby gave me goosebumps and turned me into a diehard fan.

CBS executive session: Peterson's CSI departure, Moonlight fans, and a different sensibility - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 18th 2008 3:26PM
Nina TasslerThe first day of the combined CBS / CW / Showtime part of the tour kicked off with the executive session from CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler. Before she got on stage, the network showed a montage of their shows. It was then I realized, "Boy, I really don't watch anything on this network, do I?" I mean, outside of the Monday comedies and The Price is Right, there isn't one show on the Eye net that I tune in on a regular basis.

Anyway, she addressed the departure of William Peterson from CSI, just about right off the bat, giving the gathered writers a clue as to the nature of the character who will be coming in to fill his void. Oh, and Tassler is studying to become a cantor. For some reason, a reporter asked her about that.

Who should replace William Petersen on CSI?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 16th 2008 3:02PM

William PetersenWe told you yesterday about William Petersen leaving his role as Gil Grissom on CBS' CSI. Now comes word that a bunch of actors have either been asked to take his place or have at least been talked about taking his place.

First on the list is John Malkovich, who was actually asked to take over the role but said 'no' (that would have made him a strong contender for this award next year). Other names that have been brought up include Kurt Russell and Laurence Fishburne.

Wow, those are two exciting names, actually. Two strong movie actors with TV ties. I can picture both of them in the role and really giving the show a little jolt. Personally, I think they should hire Tim Daly, have the team go private, and change the show's title to Eyes.

After the jump, some more names that might be added to the list...

Lost's Harold Perrineau moves on to movie work

harold perrineauHarold Perrineau isn't exactly off the show, but apparently he does have some spare time over the next few months. According to Zap2It, he has signed on for three upcoming films, including the sequel to the crazy/good British zombie flick, 28 Days Later. It's called 28 Weeks Later and Perrineau will play an American Special Forces pilot who has to bring families back to London after an infection of 'rage' nearly wiped out the population. Of course, the virus rears its ugly head again. Perrineau also has roles in two other movies, including one with John Malkovich.

Lost producers have said that Perrineau, who plays Michael, still has a role in the show. But, last we saw him he betrayed his friends to get his son back and was driving off into the sunset in The Others' boat.

Jon StewartMay 4th was Cinco de Mayo Eve, the night when drunken stockbrokers tumble through civilian chimneys once the kids are in bed.

"Revenge of the Birds": The ol' H5-NI fear has been running rampant and the government finally stepped up and released its plans to combat any potential outbreak in the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza report. Here's a synopsis: "We dunno what to do, we dunno what to do, we dunno!" Jon suggested an alternate title for the Strategy... "RUN!"
