Alfred Molina On Playing Doc Ock In 'SpiderMan 2'

Doc Ock In SpiderMan 2Alfred Molina, who plays Doctor Octopus (Doc Ock) in the highly anticipated SpiderMan 2 movie, says he is enjoying the different experience in portraying a comic book villain. "It's not like anything most of us do in the course of our work," Molina told Comics Continuum.

"It's such a strange ... and clearly, it's its own world and has its own rules, its own conventions. The one thing you never hear from actors who are in a movie like this, whether you're playing a villain or a super-hero, is 'Well, I don't know anybody who could do this.' Because, the thing is, it's a whole different universe. And you have to embrace that. And be as authentic as you can."

"I'm having the time of my life. Playing villains is the perfect job, really because you get to be outrageous as you want to be. All bets are off."
