Biography

John Gavin Malkovich was born in Christopher, Illinois, to Joe Anne (Choisser), who owned a local newspaper, and Daniel Leon Malkovich, a state conservation director. His paternal grandparents were Croatian. In 1976, Malkovich joined Chicagos Steppenwolf Theatre, newly founded by his friend Gary Sinise. After that, it would take seven years before Malkovich would show up in New York and win an Obie in Sam Shepards play True West. In 1984, Malkovich would appear with Dustin Hoffman in the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, which would earn him an Emmy when it was made into a made-for-TV movie the next year.
