Last week, Alfred Molina stopped by Studio 360 to chat with Kurt about his Tony-nominated performance as Mark Rothko in the play “Red.” Bet you didn’t know that he grew up in London as Alfredo Molina, the son of Spanish and Italian immigrants. In this sneak preview of their conversation, Molina explains that he was determined to be English through and through:

UPDATE: Kurt’s interview with Alfred Molina aired the weekend of May 29th - listen to it here:
I’ve never been a fan of V Day, but I decided to give it a shot last year. I was newlywed, so I figured: if not now, when?
I wanted a gift that was grown-up, but not too earnest. Modest, but not drugstore cheesy. So I arranged for my husband and me to take a tennis lesson together.
But about 10 minutes in, I realized this instructor wasn’t going to foster the loving-yet-sporting atmosphere I’d envisioned. Instead, she pitted us against one another. Then I made the mistake of telling her this was my Valentine’s Day gift to my husband, so she snarked about that for the rest of the hour. By the end of the lesson, an over-priced and mediocre prix fixe dinner was actually looking good.
I know we can do better to reinvent this horrid holiday. Now’s your chance to do your part to stop the flood of ugly cards and half-dead roses.
