Marvel Casts John Malkovich In The Fantastic Four

The Fantastic Four is still over a year away from hitting theaters, but the cast is coming together quickly. Now, the latest addition to the cast is veteran actor John Malkovich. Details about Malkovich’s role were not included in the initial report, but he does have a strong physical resemblance to long-time Fantastic Four foe Philip Masters, who is better known as the Puppet Master.
