Trivia and Quotes

  • A classic actor who can easily balance his evil & good roles...

    Although I like him mainly because of his role in the "Chalk Zone" TV movie, Malcolm McDowell is also one of my favorite actors because he's talented. He's good at playing sinister characters, like Alexander DeLarge (of the classic movie "A Clockwork Orange"). But, then again, he's also good at playing nice characters, like Barney The Encyclocentipedia in "Chalk Zone". Malcolm is, overall, just an excellent actor who can easily balance dark roles with light ones. He can also do a wicked diabolical laugh! And he was very cute back when he was young, wouldn't you agree with me, eh?moreless
  • There's more to Malcolm McDowell than just A Clockwork Orange.

    It's hard not to love Malcolm McDowell.

    He's equally good at playing the nasty villian as he is at playing the good-natured guy. Although, most would probably say that his villians are some of the best they've seen.

    He's got a truly excellent voice which, fortunately for us, he has used to provide characters such as Metallo and Whistler with a distinct sound.

    Malcolm McDowell is a wonderful actor. I'd personally watch anything that he's in, no matter how small a role he plays.moreless
