Being John Malkovich doesn't make much difference when you get burned.
John Malkovich is asking a federal appeals court for the full $2.2 million he lost at the hands of swindling money man Bernard Madoff.
Malkovich, a onetime client of the conman, received a $670,000 award by the trustee in charge of liquidating Madoff's assets.
While the courts haven't been sympathetic to Malkovich's requests so far, at least he's in good company. Other celebrities screwed by Madoff include Kevin Bacon, Steven Spielberg, baseball great Sandy Koufax and Ringo Starr's wife, Barbara Bach.
