She stars with Alfred Molina in the movie, and so Craig Ferguson had some tips for her in doing interviews with him on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

"He's very ticklish," Ferguson pointed out. "He's ticklish, and he's very embarrassed about how hairy he is downstairs."

"I'll bring that up right away," Weaver said.

Alfred Molina On Watching the Royal Wedding: 'I'd Rather Eat My Elbows' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 22nd 2011 4:36AM
Alfred Molina, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Despite what some people in America might think, the British are not all excited about the forthcoming Royal Wedding. And yet, Alfred Molina's lack of interest in the whole affair was apparently crippling news to one interviewer, according to 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS).

"So the Royal Weddings' at the end of April. Are you gonna be there?" the woman asked him.


She then asked if he was going to be watching or even was interested and got the same answer. At that point, according to Molina, she was basically crippled as if he'd not only run through her only topic of conversation, but had shattered her very perception of reality.

'Law & Order: LA' 2.0 Has Old Friends, New Gigs & Headline-Grabbing Stories

'Law & Order: LA'By Jane Murphy
In last week's two-part 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' -- the first new episode since the show went on a retooling hiatus Dec. 1 -- the reset button was officially hit for the freshman series.

For fans of the show (which has seen its fair share of drama, even though it's only aired 10 episodes to date) the revamp brings us something old, something new and something borrowed, hoping this marriage between the franchise and the City of Angels lasts a good long time.

And of course, there's also something blue with Alfred Molina's character Ricardo Morales leaving the DA's office in the aftermath of the shooting death of Det. Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich) to come back to the beat as a detective.

AOL TV caught up with executive producer Rene Balcer, co-creator of the show with 'L&O' head honcho Dick Wolf, to hear all about Morales' big switch and other cast changes for what he's calling "LOLA 2.0."

"There are many factors that finally convince [Morales] he'd be a happier camper back as a cop ... It's about how the case is being handled, the political influences that come to bear on the prosecution."

Alfred Molina on the 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Revamp, His Many Accents, and His LEGO Record

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 5th 2011 2:00PM
Alfred Molina of 'Law & Order: Los Angeles'When 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' wasn't getting the ratings that NBC expects from a member of the 'L&O' franchise, the network didn't throw in the towel. In fact, it asked 'L&O' impresario Dick Wolf and his producers to go back and retool the show for the second half of its first season.

Audiences will see the result of that retooling starting Monday, April 11, at 9PM ET. Among the biggest changes is that Alfred Molina's character, Deputy D.A. Ricardo Morales, will return to the LAPD as a detective. The backstory of how that happens, including what happens to who he's replacing, Det. Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich), will be sorted out during the first few episodes of the show's return.

I spoke to Molina last month about his thoughts on the switch, which will involve his working on every episode -- as a D.A., Molina's character was alternating episodes with Terrence Howard's character, Deputy D.A. Jonah Dekker -- and why he decided to go back to series TV after a nine-year absence. I also spoke to the veteran character actor about his many roles (and his many accents), and I found out why he's a record-holder, at least in the world of LEGOs.

'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Premiere: Watch Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Footage

by Sharon Knolle, posted Sep 29th 2010 11:30AM
When 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' premieres tonight (10PM ET on NBC), it will be the first time in over 20 years that the mothership show, 'Law & Order,' isn't on the air.

Instead, the familiar "chung-chung" sound will be heard on 'SVU,' 'Criminal Intent' (on USA) and this newest edition.

Set amid the bright lights of Hollywood and the gritty streets of South Central, the show stars Skeet Ulrich, Terrence Howard and Alfred Molina, Rachel Ticotin, Corey Stoll and more as the cops and prosecutors charged with dispensing justice in L.A.

'LOLA' kicks off with a crossover from its sibling, 'SVU,' which premieres tonight at 9PM ET. Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson heads to Los Angeles for a case about the "backlog of untested rape kits," she told E! News.

Alfred Molina joins cast of 'Law & Order: LA'The cast of 'Law & Order: LA' is starting to take a bit more shape. EW.com's The Ausiello Files is reporting that Alfred Molina has completed a deal to join the cast as Deputy District Attorney Morales. The only other major casting so far has been Skeet Ulrich, who will play one of the lead detectives.

Molina can currently be seen on the big screen in 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice,' and has a particularly active film career, with several new projects on his slate. He's perhaps best known for roles in 'Spider-Man 2' and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark.' He's also a popular voiceover actor ('Rango,' 'Wonder Woman,' 'Chill Out, Scooby-Doo!').

Shirley Manson signed to Sarah Connor Chronicles, other casting notes - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted May 29th 2008 9:41AM

Shirley MansonLooky there. With just those seven little words The Sarah Connor Chronicles has become the show I'm most looking forward to next season. With music, there's nothing I like more than putting a little Garbage on the turntable. Because of that, over the years I've become just a little bit obsessed with Shirley Manson. And now comes word that the lovely and talented Miss Manson has been signed to the show.

Just that is enough to make me watch, but it gets even better. This isn't a musical guest like someone stopping by to play at P3 or the Montecito. Oh no, Shirley will join the cast in a regular role as Catherine Weaver, CEO of a high-tech company. One could certainly argue that it's stunt casting, or that they could find a more qualified actor to take on such a big role. But any crazy argument like that will fall on deaf ears here pal. It's Shirley Manson. That's all I need to know.

Chris O'Donnell stars on TNT's The Company with other super-hero grads

Chris O'Donnell Chris O'Donnell's "Robin" was partnered with "Batmen" Val Kilmer and George Clooney in the movies - but he never battled crime alongside Michael Keaton, who brought the Dark Knight to the big screen in 1989, until the two were cast in The Company. The TNT six-hour, three-week mini-series (based on the book by Robert Littell about the early days of the CIA and the Cold War) debuts on Sunday, August 5 at 8 PM.

"Michael wasn't on that long," O'Donnell told TV Squad in a one-on-one interview in a TNT-hosted suite at the Beverly Hilton following a TCA panel for The Company last month. The actor actually shared more screen time with Company co-star Alfred Molina (aka Spider-Man 2's Doctor Octopus). "We all sat around together [at one point] thinking, 'It's two from the 'Justice League' and one [Spider-man] super villain!'"
