John Malkovich has gone to court in a bid to reclaim the $2.2 million (£1.4 million) jailed conman BERNIE MADOFF took from him.
The actor lost a fortune as a former client of the infamous schemer and argues the $670,000 (£419,000) he received from the trustees who liquidated Madoff's firm was not nearly enough.
In documents filed in New York on Thursday (01Apr10), Malkovich argued his trust deserved the cash reflected on his final statement - 11 days before Madoff's 2008 arrest.
In the legal papers, obtained by Reuters, the movie star writes, "A customer generally expects to receive what he believes is in his account at the time the stockbroker ceases business."
The full amount Malkovich expects has not been disclosed.
