Did Rover Get Malcolm McDowell To Roll Over?

Syndicated morning show ROVER'S MORNING GLORY may have scooped the tabloids regarding OWEN WILSON story. This morning's guest, renowned actor MALCOLM MCDOWELL stopped by to promote his upcoming movie "Halloween," directed by ROB ZOMBIE. After spending a few minutes discussing MCDOWELL’s career and past drug use (including cocaine), ROVER was the first to inform him of the alleged suicide attempt by actor OWEN WILSON, whom MCDOWELL co-starred with in the 2003 movie "I Spy."
Startled at the news, MALCOLM's response was "that’s what that stuff will do to you," which could be considered curious since the pair had just been talking about cocaine 15 seconds earlier.
MCDOWELL later told ROVER he didn’t know if drugs were involved, but if they were it could have contributed to the suicide attempt.
