Malcolm McDowell has created a gallery of iconic characters since catapulting to the screen as Mick Travis, the rebellious upperclassman in Lindsay Anderson’s prize-winning sensation, If… His place in movie history was subsequently secured by playing the gleefully amoral Alex in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange; when McDowell himself conceived the idea for Mick Travis’ further adventures in Anderson’s Candid-like masterpiece, O Lucky Man!; and when he wooed Mary Steenburgen and defeated Jack the Ripper as the romantically inquisitive H.G. Wells in, Time After Time. Among his numerous film and TV roles are the tyrannical Soran (the destroyer of Capt. Kirk) in Star Trek: Generations; his Machiavellian Mr. Roarke in Fantasy Island and his comically pompous professor Steve Pynchon in Pearl, opposite Rhea Perlman. He had a recurring role as Terence on Entourage, played Professor Cornwallis on Community, was a series regular in Amazon’s hit show Mozart in the Jungle and the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost-penned show, Truth Seekers. His latest film, Free Lunch Express, is available on VOD on all digital platforms on December 4. In 2012, Malcolm was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
One of the greats has passed today. A shining star and a wonderful person. Dear Tina RIP #tinaturner #rip… https://t.co/ciEAOnJZYv
