Actor John Malkovich has agreed to a guest starring role in the season three of 'Billions'.

Malkovich will play Russian billionaire Grigor Andolov. The role fits well 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, reports

"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.

'Billions' is created and executive produced by showrunners Koppelman and Levien. The series was also created by Andrew Ross Sorkin. The third season will premiere in India on AXN.
