John Malkovich has signed on for a guest starring role in Season 3 of the Showtime drama Billions, the premium cable network announced Wednesday.

Malkovich will play Russian billionaire Grigor Andolov. The role is certainly fitting considering that Malkovich previously played a Russian mobster named Teddy KGB in the movie “Rounders,” which was written by “Billions” co-creators David Levien and Brian Koppelman.

“John appeared in our first two films, ‘Rounders’ and ‘Knockaround Guys,’ and we have a long creative history together. We are ecstatic to be reunited with the man who played Teddy KGB once again,” said Koppelman and Levien.

Malkovich is an Emmy-winning and two-time Oscar nominated actor, director, producer and fashion designer. He received Oscar nominations for his roles in Places in the Heart and In the Line of Fire. In 1985, he appeared in the Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, which would earn him an Emmy when it was made into a television film.
He also collaborated on multiple projects with Charlie Kaufman, appearing in the films Adaptation and Being John Malkovich. His other feature films include Empire of the Sun, Con Air, Of Mice and Men, and Burn After Reading. His producing credits include films such as Ghost World, Juno, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
