‘A Clockwork Orange’ Star Is Now A Big Pussy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Malcolm McDowell will always be known as Alex DeLarge from the 1971 cult classic A Clockwork Orange, but in his latest flick, he’s nothing but a big pussy.

McDowell voices Dr. Calico, a sinister cat who hates dogs in Disney’s new animated flick Bolt, which co- stars John Travolta and Miley Cyrus.

McDowell says it was fun playing a fierce furball in a movie his own young kids can actually watch, since fans come up to him quoting the freaky A Clockwork Orange all the time.

He explains, “They’ll always recite [lines from the movie] like, ‘Viddy well,’ and ‘In out!’”

He hopes that with the success of Bolt, children will now come up to him and yell, “Get that dog!” instead of belting “Singing in the rain” – one of McDowell’s most famous scenes from Clockwork.

He laughs, “I enjoy having fans across the board! It’s fun and everyone is so nice.”

Bolt opens in theaters this Friday (Nov. 21).
