Charlie Sheen was in rehab when he heard about fledgling filmmaker Spike Jonze’s eagerness to cast him in this, his feature directorial debut. Sheen accepted the role without initially reading the script.

Did you know

In the first draft of the script, Lester and his friends weren’t using Malkovich’s portal as a means for extending their lives, but in a plot to take over the world in the name of Satan. Satan was the mysterious ‘Flemmer’ that the Merton-Flemmer building was half named after.
A puppeteer discovers a portal that leads literally into the head of movie star John Malkovich.
