Bio

Malcolm McDowell is an English actor best known for his roles in the controversial feature films A Clockwork Orange (1971), O Lucky Man! (1973) and Caligula, in 1979.

He currently stars as Stanton Infeld in the comedy-drama television series Franklin & Bash, since 2011.

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...

McDowell's place in movie history was subsequently secured when Stanley Kubrick found the actor he was searching for to play the gleefully amoral Alex DeLarge in A Clockwork Orange.

Those legendary roles are among the ones that have endured with legions of filmgoers, while new adherents have been won over by his tyrannical Soran (who destroys Capt. Kirk) in Star Trek: Generations; his Machiavellian Mr. Roarke in the 2002 revival of Fantasy Island; and his comically pompous professor Steve Pynchon in the critically hailed CBS television series Pearl, starring opposite Rhea Perlman.

McDowell's distinctive motion picture characterisations include Richard Lester's Royal Flash, Paul Schrader's Cat People, Rachel Talalay's Tank Girl, Joseph Losey's Figures in a Landscape, Bryan Forbes' The Raging Moon and the Chaplinesque studio boss in Blake Edwards' Sunset.

On television, McDowell has made recurring appearances as Terence on the hit HBO series Entourage and as Linderman on NBC's Heroes.
