‘Clockwork Orange’ star Aubrey Morris dies at 89.

His agent, Larry Corsa, confirmed that Morris passed away in Los Angeles on Wednesday at the Barlow Respiratory Hospital, where he’d been under care for several weeks. The character actor had a memorable scene in “A Clockwork Orange” in which his probation officer character cautions the protagonist, Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell), about getting into trouble. “I’m warning you, little Alex, being a good friend to you as always, the one man in this sore and sick community who wants to save you from yourself,” Morris says in the scene (below).Morris, whose career spanned more than five decades and included roles in such films as The Wicker Man (1973) and Lisztomania (1975), died Wednesday, his agent confirmed to THR.

The British actor’s other movie credits include Robin Hardy’s horror film “The Wicker Man,” the musical “Lisztomania,” Woody Allen’s comedy “Love and Death” and the dramedy “My Girl 2,” with Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis. But it was his portrayal of the sniveling probation office to Malcolm McDowell’s Alex in Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 classic A Clockwork Orange that will stand as his most beloved and famous role.

His other smallscreen roles include “The Saint,” “The Sweeney,” “The Prisoner” and “The Avengers,” as well as the U.S. shows “Deadwood” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” in which he made his last appearance. Deltoid, Morris blended the sinister with the campy and comedic in his scenes with Alex — especially when he unforgettably knocks Alex in the crotch after a wholly unconventional house call.

One of nine children, Morris and his siblings were appreciative of the arts, with sisters Julia and Sonia becoming professional dancers and brother Wolfe becoming an actor.
