Actor John Malkovich's time on the big screen must have prepared him for real-life heroism. The Burn After Reading actor came to the rescue of an Ohio man who tripped on a curb in downtown Toronto and was "bleeding profusely from the neck," Toronto's The Star reports. "I'm forever grateful to him, he really helped me out," Jim Walpole, 77, said of the actor. One witness, doorman Chris Mathias, said of the celebrity hero, "I believe [Malkovich] was having a cigarette and witnessed the whole thing happening, he placed his hand and started applying pressure to the man's neck and didn't let go until the ambulance arrived."
