Cusack starred in other films, including Serendipity, Pushing Tin, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity and Max.

He starred in the film adaptation of 1408 based on Stephen King's short story.

"I don't need to be liked."Over the past three decades, that voice has become synonymous with the darkest of film characters. I meet the 57-year-old actor at the Marrakech Film Festival, where he has been appointed president of the jury.

And, somehow, conversation has strayed on to the thorny terrain of real-life politics.

On October 10, 2008, Leatherman pleaded no contest and received five years' probation and mandatory psychiatric counseling, and was ordered to stay away from Cusack, his home, and business for the next ten years.Obama's presidency, and the shift in the way he is now perceived in America, is a case in point, he insists. It was more evident when he lived on the Continent, and worse in Britain, he says.Isn't this a bleak view to hold of power and democracy? "I go around the world, working with all kinds of people who I love. I prefer to conduct my life based on how I treat people."Malkovich is flushed, excited, clearly in his stride. The whistle-blowing website Wiki Leaks, he says, is the extension of a Facebook culture that reflects our prurient appetites for status updates and a constant drip of minutiae about everything from what we are eating to international intelligence."What are the surprises – the Arabs are not happy with Ahmadinejad, Putin is authoritative, Berlusconi has too much down-time for bunga-bunga? "But no one cares who you are in Cambridge."Despite his outer cool, Malkovich appears to be a man of fulminating emotions which come and go in a flash.A fellow actor who worked with him in the late 1980s has wondered if Malkovich's spleen-venting is all a big joke. Soon we're all going to have proctology at airports before boarding our flights."He's so right-wing," said William Hootkins, "you have to wonder if he's kidding."Malkovich has not voted in years, he says, because he does not want to be disappointed by our political "heroes" who, within a term in office, are reduced to pantomime baddies. Believe me," he nods, "it's coming."One wonders if the root of Malkovich's anger lies in the invasion of his own privacy. It is not nearly so bad now, in the East Coast enclave of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he has lived for the past few years since returning from a decade in France.
