Before They Were Stars: Alfred Molina on “The Losers”

You’re probably well aware of Alfred Molina’s film debut as Indiana Jones’ doomed sidekick, Satipo, during the opening act of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Prior to that, however, Molina made his first appearance in front of a camera by starring in a 1978 British sitcom called The Losers. Interestingly, the uncharacteristically blonde Molina played a professional writer named “The Butcher” who is constantly losing all his matches (hence the title). The Losers only lasted six episodes, but considering that Spider-Man also got his start in professional wrestling, we can only hope that the whole thing eventually led to a triple threat match between Spidey, Doc Ock and Bonesaw.
