Actor Malkovich in Legal Drama Over Madoff Claim

Thursday, 01 April 2010 09:23 PM

Actor John Malkovich's lawyers have complained to a judge in New York overseeing the bankruptcy of jailed financier Bernie Madoff that he'll only get $670,000 of his $2.2 million claim.

The lawyers filed papers Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court saying the actor should be entitled to $2.2 million. They say the trustee handling the estate determined that the actor was entitled to the smaller number and that's wrong.

The 56-year-old star of such films as "Being John Malkovich" and "Burn After Reading" is among thousands of investors who lost tens of billions of dollars in the multi-decade fraud that Madoff revealed in December 2008 when he ran out of money.

Madoff is serving a 150-year jail term after pleading guilty to fraud charges.
