John Malkovich, 68, dons a black coat and trilby hat as he enjoys solo lunch in Venice

John Malkovich put on a dapper display as he enjoyed a spot of lunch in Venice on Tuesday, during a break from filming Showtime’s upcoming series, Ripley.

The actor, 68, looked suave in a smart black coat which he styled above a coordinating shirt, trousers and shiny leather shoes.

Accessorising his look with a charcoal trilby hat, he shot a glum express as he sat alone before standing up and tucking a newspaper under his arm.

He made the admonishment ahead of the release of his new Netflix comedy show, Space Force, in which he stars with Steve Carell.

The Hollywood star opined that the emergence of social media has irrevocably changed the medium of comedy forever, now that the ire of a generation is the matter of a few characters, clicks and retweets away from being sparked.

He added: ‘Part of what makes [comedy] difficult is also the tidal wave of idiocy that can be created on social media in a day … the outrage mob.’
