BOSTON — In honor of the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic masterpiece, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” two of its stars, Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood will be at “Boston Comic Con presents FanExpo Boston” this weekend at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Hall.
Despite being an accomplished actor of both stage and screen, Dullea’s name has become synonymous with Astronaut David Bowman in “2001: A Space Odyssey” and Dullea doesn’t mind a bit.
“It’s definitely a blessing,” Dullea said on the phone in San Francisco, where his wife, Mia Dillon, is performing in a revival of “Barefoot in the Park” at the Old Globe. “If one could only be known for one thing, you could do worse. Truly, it’s one of the great films in the history of cinema and I was fortunate to be cast by this genius, Stanley Kubrick. And I loved every minute working with him.”
