Malcolm McDowell is one of our most popular and favorite guests, and we are delighted to have him back with us at Rock and Shock! With his charisma, charm, humor and quick wit, Malcolm is a joy to meet and speak with, and his Q&A panels are not to be missed. He has a long and famous (or infamous depending on the project) film career, and he’s got stories for every role. Malcolm first made his mark in movies in 1968 playing Mick Travis in beloved English director Lindsay Anderson’s If. Fifty years later his work ethic has yet to diminish, and he’s built a true legacy in the process starring in films such as O Lucky Man! and Britannia Hospital (reteaming with Anderson for both, continuing to play versions of Mick Travis), as well as Figures in a Landscape, Royal Flash, Aces High, The Passage, Caligula, Time After Time, Get Crazy, Star Trek: Generations, Tank Girl, Gangster No. 1, Doomsday, Death Race 2050 and so many more. He’s done a great deal of television work, in series both live action (Lexx, Fantasy Island, War and Peace, Heroes, Entourage, The Mentalist, Franklin and Bash, Mozart in the Jungle) and animated (Spider-Man, Superman, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, Phineas and Ferb). As for horror, he has built quite a resume in film and television with standout performances in Cat People, The Caller, Tales From the Crypt, The Barber, Evilenko, Suck, Excision, Antiviral, Silent Night, American Satan, and his most famous genre work spanning his three films for Rob Zombie: Halloween, Halloween II and 31. Of course, no list of Malcolm’s credits would be complete without his most popular role as Alex Delarge in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, A Clockwork Orange. If the expression is true that someone could be born to play a role, Malcolm gives life to Alex in a way that perhaps no one else could, and it carries the film to a greater level. Because of that, as well as his resume and career longevity, Malcolm received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012. He is a man whose work is worth celebrating, and we hope you’ll join us this October 12th through 14th to do just that!
