Alfred Molina explains why he does not turn work down — and how even bad projects add to his “crazy quilt of experiences.”
Alfred Molina stars in Red at the Mark Taper Forum through September 9, a role that he originated in London and again later in a Tony Award-winning production on Broadway. Like the previous productions Molina stars as Mark Rothko, the eccentric real-life artist who was commissioned to paint works for New York’s Four Seasons restaurant and felt conflicted about taking such a commercial job.
Known as Kevin Arnold from the Wonder Years before jumping behind the camera to produce and direct, actor Fred Savage has a new comedy series coming to NBC’s Wednesday night line up, Best Friends Forever.
Molina, who is of mixed Spanish-Italian heritage, harkens back to an era where nearly every “ethnic” character was played by some vaguely ethnic white man often in heavy make-up, with more success than others.
