Malina's first screen role was a small part in the filmed version of "A Few Good Men" (1992) starring Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson. Malina continued to work in film and television, with supporting roles in "In the Line of Fire" (1993) and "Malice" (1993) among others. In 1995, Malina appeared in "The American President" (1995), also scripted by Sorkin, this time starring Michael Douglas and Annette Bening.
