Exclusive: Malcolm McDowell to Guest-Star on The Mentalist

We see a serious bad guy in Patrick Jane's future: Malcolm McDowell will guest-star on an upcoming episode of The Mentalist, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

McDowell, best known for playing nihilist Alex in A Clockwork Orange, will play the leader of a twisted religious cult in which Jane (Simon Baker) gets entangled. Series creator Bruno Heller describes the character as a "great heavy."

Fun fact: He played the Ricardo Montalban role in the short-lived 1998 Fantasy Island reboot.

Premise: In this decidedly dark update of the campy hit, Mr. Roarke still manages a remote paradise where dreams come true---but they often do so at a price.
