No, I didn’t screw up and accidentally upload an outtake from Lindsay Lohan’s blasphemous Marilyn Monroe photo shoot for New York Magazine. John Malkovich looks a zillion times fresher than LiLo and he has more sexiness in his freshly painted exquisite Sharpie brow than she will ever have. Somewhere up in heaven, Marilyn Monroe knocked on Bert Stern’s door and asked him if they can do over her last sitting because she can’t let John Malkovich show her up like this.
Inspired by Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich from Being John Malkovich, photographer Sandro Miller decided to recreate some of history’s most iconic photographs using national treasure John Malkovich. John Malkovich becomes Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Muhammad Ali, Gaultier, Einstein, Jack Nicholson, the Migrant Mother and many more. John Malkovich also stars as twins that are more creepier than The Shining Twins and the Trollsens. That’s saying a lot. Sandro says that he chose 35 works that have inspired him as a photographer and asked John Malkovich to help him recreate them:
“John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea and within moments, he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process… I’m truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator.”
The Hollywood Reporter says that all the Malkovich-ized photos that Sandro Miller created will show at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago from November 7, 2014 to January 15, 2015. Click here to see more of them.
If you’re asking yourself, FOR WHY?!!!! The answer is, because if there’s one thing this world is thirsty for, it’s more John Malkovich! And yes, someone will find a way to fap to that picture above and I don’t judge them at all.
