Alfred Molina, the ethnically ambiguous actor of both stage and screen, gave a fantastic interview to Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist. It is totally worth a listen and you should be all over it/.
For those of you not instantly familiar with Molina, his filmography includes Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, and, most recently, Matador for Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network. Because it is The Nerdist, Hardwick asks Molina about all these things and more. Needless to say, “Doc Ock” has some wonderful tales from behind-the-scenes of your favorite blockbusters.
While you’re at it, be sure to check out the Morgan Freeman ep as well. Between Freeman’s soothing voice (despite his endless chewing) and the Molina chat, you might find yourself wanting to take speech therapy.
