How cool is it that we scored an interview with Malcolm McDowell this week? The star of A Clockwork Orange, Caligula, Star Trek: Generations and, more recently, Halloween and Heroes sat down with the site and gave us one hell of an interview. I’ve never been more proud to be associated with this site than I am right now (even if every time I have disagreed with Joel this week, he has threatened to replace me with a Hobo Polar Bear).
So please check out the Malcolm McDowell interview if you haven’t already. I promise you, it’s an interesting and entertaining read.
Hopefully, even all of you angry Bob Dylan fans who have found your way to the site can put your pitchforks and torches down long enough to enjoy the interview.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
One on One with Malcolm McDowell
After 40 years in the business and more than 100 films under his belt, to say that Malcolm McDowell has had a long and successful career would be an understatement. The charismatic star of classic films like A Clockwork Orange and Caligula now finds himself doing voiceover work for shows like Metalocalypse and playing Daniel Linderman on the hit series Heroes.
We recently were caught up with McDowell to discuss his distinguished career, his golf game and how it feels to play the role of the villain.
Murphy’s Law – Hero worship
This week, Joel Murphy takes a break from trying out new TV shows and instead focuses his attention on a show that he is already a fan of, Heroes. While Murphy feels that season three is off to a much better start than the much-hated second season of the show, he still thinks there are three issues that need to be addressed before the show will truly shine.
Note to Self – Music City Miracle 2
During a playoff game between the Tennessee Titans and the Buffalo Bills on January 8, 2000, the Titans won the game in the final seconds by throwing a lateral to Kevin Dyson, who ran 75 yards for a touchdown. The play became known at the “Music City Miracle.” This season, both the Titans and Bills are off to 4-0 starts, which is a miracle in it’s own right.
Outside of the In-Crowd – In which I solve the economy
Fierce bipartisan battles have been fought this week over a bailout aimed at saving America’s struggling economy. But while the fat cats in Washington can’t seem to agree on a plan, Courtney Enlow has come up with a way to fix the economy in 10 easy steps.
Overrated – Bob Dylan
Ned Bitters certainly has a knack for rubbing people the wrong way. But this week, Bitters nearly incited a riot by claiming that “The Voice of a Generation,” Bob Dylan, was overrated. Bitters believes that people don’t actually like Dylan’s music, they just pretend to like it to seem sophisticated.
