U.S. actor John Malkovich has accrued almost cult-like status in Hollywood for his ability to play the villain.

From the lecherous Vicomte de Valmont in "Dangerous Liaisons" (1988), to the psychotic, would-be assassin in "In the Line of Fire" (1993) and the plane hijacker in "Con Air" (1997), some of Malkovich's biggest roles have been as the 'bad guy'.

Perhaps his most famous role to date is as himself in "Being John Malkovich": a surreal film in which a puppeteer finds a passage into his mind.

Malkovich is also a successful writer, producer and director – for film and theatre.

This summer, he will be taking time out of Hollywood to tour with the play "The Infernal Comedy", in which he appears dead serial killer.

He'll also pick up a lifetime achievement award at the Munich International Film Festival, promote his latest film, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon",and make his debut at the Edinburgh Festival, directing a play celebrating the work of the British playwright Harold Pinter.

Jeffrey Wright is an American actor best known for his Golden Globe and Emmy Award performance in the critically acclaimed mini-series "Angels in America."

The Washington-born star has also been lauded for his work on stage and in films including Shaft, Broken and Source Code.

But Wright's biggest reward has come from helping the people of Sierra Leone rebuild their lives.

He first traveled to the country 10 years ago, just as the country was coming out of its decade long civil war.

Wright fell in love with the country and saw its potential for growth.

In 2007, he set up the Taia Peace Foundation which is dedicated to stimulating economic development in Sierra Leone by initiating projects that employ local villagers.

Most recently, the foundation celebrated the completion of a 29 kilometer road in the country's far east. Not only was the road reconstructed, but the money to build it was filtered back into the local community.

Here's your chance to have your questions answered by Jeffrey Wright.
