John Malkovich (and his penchant for scarves) to the rescue! The "Warm Bodies" star was out for a walk in Toronto when he heard cries for help that directed him to Jim Walpole, who had tripped and suffered a deep cut on his neck that was gushing blood, according to CBC Toronto News. "The way he was spurting I thought it was the carotid [artery] pr the jugular," Walpole's wife, Marilyn, says, adding that Malkovich was soon "taking over just like a doctor," applying pressure to the wound with his scarf with the assistance of a local restaurant owner. "They were so helpful, so wonderful," Walpole recalls. "I asked, 'What's your name?' He said, 'John.' And I didn't ask the last name because I didn't figure I'd remember."
