With so many big sci-fi names guest-starring in NBC show Heroes (including Star Trek's Sulu, George Takei, and ninth Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston), it was only a matter of time before someone with Wing Commander history showed up. That time came this week as our very own Admiral Tolwyn, Malcolm McDowell made his first appearance as the show's Mr. Linderman. IMDB's section for Heroes describes it best.
Its main plotline surrounds the stories of 8 people who discover abilities they've never had before. Some of them immediately embrace them, others fear societal judgement and keep them a secret. Some of them discover a prophecy that will result in a possible cataclysm, others will use their powers to change their lives and the lives of others.McDowell's character Mr. Linderman is the owner of the Linderman Group, and runs a hotel and casino in Las Vegas. He also appears to have mafia connections. It's quite likely that McDowell's character will appear in future episodes but as the show is currently on hiatus until April 23, so we have a little wait before we find out. McDowell can be seen below enjoying a spot of cooking in his hotel's restaurant kitchen. Thanks to Rick Salemi for pointing this out.
