Malcolm Mcdowell - Malcolm Mcdowell Surprised By Offer To Play Pierce Brosnan's Movie Dad

Veteran actor Malcolm Mcdowell was stunned when he was offered a role playing Pierce Brosnan's father in new movie How To Make Love Like An Englishman, because he is only 10 years older than the former James Bond star.

MCDowell, 70, admits he was a little taken aback by the job proposal at first as there really isn't much of an age gap between the pair.

He tells the New York Daily News, "Can you believe that? When I was cast I said, 'What on earth is this? Do I look this much of a wreck? Does he look that good?'"

But the A Clockwork Orange star insists the actors hit it off and he had "great fun" with 60-year-old Brosnan offscreen.

The comedy stars Brosnan as a professor at Britain's famous Cambridge University who falls in love with a student.
