Malcolm McDowell (1943-) is an English actor with a reputation for playing villainous characters, including his Star-Making Role of Alex in A Clockwork Orange, the title role in Caligula, the guy who dropped a bridge on Captain Kirk in Star Trek Generations (and only took the part because the producers let him drop that bridge), Metallo in Superman: The Animated Series, and the villain of the Show Within a Show in Bolt.

Non-villainous roles include Major Gresham in Aces High and H. G. Wells in Time After Time. Somewhere in between are Harry Flashman in the film version of Royal Flash and Mr. Roarke in the remake of Fantasy Island.

He made his film debut in If...., and his performance in that film led to being cast in A Clockwork Orange.
