[TV] Alfred Molina Talks About Voicing Lex Luthor for the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 04.03.2014

IGN recently interviewed actor Alfred Molina, who is voicing Lex Luthor in the upcoming Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise show. Below are some highlights.

The special airs on Sunday, April 16 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block at 11:30PM ET.

Molina on voicing Lex Luthor:"Yeah, I don't think we've ever heard him sing before, which is nice! But I think it's a wonderful tribute the universality of these characters and this world that gets created in these comics. If you're a fan of the comics, as I am, you realize there's no limit to what you can do with them. They're so iconic, they're so well-known, that you can play with them in all kinds of ways, and none of it detracts -- what we've done with Lex Luthor or with any of those supervillains, there's nothing we've done that will ever detract from the next reincarnation when they're treated with more seriousness. It's just another way of looking at it, and I think that's a testament to their strength and endurance. They stand up to scrutiny."

Molina on seeing Lex Luthor and other characters in their downtime: "I like the whole notion of all these villains, all these super characters dealing with their own downtime -- you know, what do they do when they're not actually villain-izing or hero-izing? They're taking out the laundry or having conversation with their daughter. It's a lovely take on it, and it just made me smile. I thought it was very inventive. The great thing is, they're working in this kind of small corner of our universe, and they can do whatever they want. It must afford them a wonderful sense of creative freedom."

Molina on if he's interested on who will play the new Doctor Octopus in live-action: "Absolutely, yeah, absolutely. Again, these characters don't belong to anybody. How many Supermans have there been, if you include all the movie and TV stars that have played him? How many Spider-Mans have there been? These characters belong to everybody. I'll be interested to see who the next Doc Ock is going to be. Maybe I could play his dad. [Laughs]"

Molina on his role in the new show Matador: "That's got a bit of a comic book feel. It's certainly a family show -- action-adventure. It's a wonderfully wacky premise: a soccer star for an LA team who also happens to be a secret agent for a clandestine department within the CIA that not even the president knows about; and the owner of the football team is the guy who turns out to be one of five really powerful people."
