Was that John Malkovich?


Am I crazy, or was that John Malkovich opened the door when Lilly was dreaming of being murdered by German officers. There's no mention of him in the credits or anywhere else that I've searched, but I swear that's him. Can anyone confirm this?

No, I'm sorry he's not! Malkovich and that officer look very alike (so much alike that anyone can be misled), but Malkovich's face is certainly not that "flat", that is to say, rectangular.

Besides, take a look at this quotation from Malkovich's biography on imdb (the 'trivia' part):

"His [Malkovich's] first film experience was a job as an extra in Robert Altman's 1978 feature A Wedding (1978)."

If Malkovich had played that German officer in Julia -which was shot at 1977- it would have been noted by imdb.

Wasn't that Julia being killed?

The OP must have been watching a different film.
