Human body for human

Reference: Being John Malkovich (1999) by Spike Jonze

Contrary to human body acting a s a body of AI like some of the reference in this post, This movie experiments interesting idea of what if human body was controlled by another human being.

Considering I wanted to experience to be a body of AI, is it similar to being John Malkovich? but this time, not as inside of John Malkovich but the body of John Malkovich?? and is this act resembles the relationship of puppet and puppeteer?
