Alfred Molina on Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2

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 didn’t come chasing me by any means.” Molina explains why the part didn’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.”
