John Malkovich Finds a New Best Friend, Siri, in Pair of iPhone Ads These two were made for each other

For those of you who were getting a little tired of Zooey Deschanel's iPhone commercial with Siri—you know who you are—here's a breath of fresh air. John Malkovich has stepped into the campaign, by TBWA\Media Arts Lab, in a pair of commercials that broke Wednesday night—the 58-year-old actor's first U.S. ads. Malkovich and Siri actually make a pretty hilarious team. They're both equally quirky, and with their matching stilted speech, you get the sense that they really do understand each other. "I enjoyed this chat immensely. You are very eloquent," he tells Siri at the end of the "Life" spot. Is Malkovich falling in love? While these are his first American commercials, Malkovich has done plenty of overseas work, the most amusing of which is probably this promo for the Karlovy Vary film festival.
