John Malkovich Not As Big a Jerk As Everyone Says!

Last night at the premiere of The Great Buck Howard, we asked director Sean McGinley what it was like working with John Malkovich, who plays the has-been mentalist. Because he seems, well, kind of scary: “You know, the company that financed this film, they came to me about two weeks before we started filming and said watch out for Malkovich, he’s a badass, he will fuck you — I don’t know if I’m allowed to curse — he will really, you know, ride a director into the ground," he said. "And then he showed up and he was nice and cool and funny and sweet and I never had a single problem. Kind of disappointing; I almost wish that at some point he had really let me have it, but he never did.” Not yet, anyway.
