While talking about playing Linderman in NBC’s “Heroes,” Malcolm McDowell also briefly discussed taking over the role of Dr. Loomis in the new Halloween, directed by Rob Zombie.
“I’ve signed for three,” said McDowell, “How about that? They obviously think it’s going to be a big hit.”
McDowell has never seen any of the “Halloween” movies, and Zombie told him not to. “It’s a new look, it’s a reinvention of it and he is completely different, my Loomis, I presume. So I guess there will be some people that will be sort of disappointed if they think I’m just going to copy [Donald Pleasence] because I’m not.”
Halloween hits theaters on August 31.
