The new issue of Starburst magazine includes an interview with Alfred Molina talking about playing Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2. Here’s a clip from the article…
“They asked me if I wanted to come in and read for the part,” he reveals. “There was a whole bunch of other actors who were on a short list. I was one of something like five and we all read for it on different days and then I guess they made their minds up. They didnâ€™t come chasing me by any means.” Molina explains why the part didnâ€™t come to him immediately. “I mean I’ve got no track record in these kinds of movie. The last sort of big movie that I did which was in any way comparable was Raiders of the Lost Ark. And that was 22 years ago. So I was surprised and delighted to be on the list.”
