An actor known for his tour-de-force performance in the Stanley Kubrick film "A Clockwork Orange" will appear on NBC’s "Community" as the college’s new history professor, reports TVLine.com.

Malcolm McDowell, who remains closely identified with his iconic portrayal of Alex in the 1971 Kubrick masterpiece, will have a multi-episode arc, playing Professor Cornwallis at Greendale Community College. The comedy will return to NBC on Friday, Oct. 19.

McDowell has racked up a string of high-profile TV appearances in recent years, including playing Stanton Infeld on TNT’s “Franklin & Bash” and Ari Gold’s foil, Terrance McQuewick, on HBO’s “Entourage.” He has been seen on “CSI: Miami,” “The Mentalist” and “Heroes,” among many other TV series, while also carving out a prolific film career (“Time After Time,” “Cat People,” “Star Trek: Generations”).
