John Malkovich plays like ambiguous figures, those in which you don't know whether to like you or fear - so it could be interesting if he will be in London in the summer as Barney Fine on the stage.

Malkovich has announced on Tuesday in an Interview with the BBC that he Wheat in David Mamets "Bitter" the main is to play the role, the Director wants to lead Mamet himself, the Premiere is on 7. June at the Garrick Theatre will take place.
Malkovich has described the piece as "a black Farce about a movie Mogul who can't behave". Whether the Comedy is the correct Form to edit the case, Weinstein, Malkovich asked then - after all, producers of cream of Tartar are in the Hollywood, even if he should be condemned for nothing, and several rape allegations in the area and a number of ruined careers, unwilling Actresses.

The reason for "Oleanna" were the hearings in the American Senate to the allegations that Anita Hill brought against the then-Supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas.
