Alfred Molina is the kind of "go to" character actor who elevates every project he appears in. The 64-year-old British-born performer, son of working-class Italian and Spanish immigrants, has been much nominated for his work, and his distinctive looks have allowed him to play just about every ethnicity imaginable. After his breakthrough role as Indiana Jones' guide in "Raiders of the Lost Ark," Molina has appeared in a wide variety of films, including "Prick Up Your Ears," "Boogie Nights," "Frida," "Spider-Man 2" and "The Da Vinci Code." In his latest film, "A Family Man," Molina plays an aging, out-of-work engineer desperate to find a new job. Lewis Beale spoke with the funny and charming actor by phone while he was moving into a new house.
