Who Did Alfred Molina Portray in the Animated Series Rick and Morty?

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s Adult Swim animated show “Rick and Morty” has had a lot of great guest voices over the years, from Daniel Radcliffe to the rapper Logic. But even in its first season, the cast was impressive. Alfred Molina was in one of the most memorable episodes of Season 1, which was also the first season.

People may know Molina best for his show-stealing role as Doctor Otto Octavius in “Spider-Man 2,” which he later played again in “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” But film nerds know him as a serious character actor. Molina was in classics like “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” disappeared as Konstantin Levin in Bernard Rose’s version of Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina,” and turned into a cartoon as Agnarr in “Frozen II” by Disney.

In an interview with LitHub, Molina said of his decades-long career, “It’s kind of chaotic, but it’s given me a wonderful range of stuff I’ve been able to do, and it’s also let people know along the way that, yeah, you know, Fred’s kind of game for this.”

When it came to his guest role on “Rick and Morty,” which was probably one of his silliest, the show’s writers took full advantage of the English actor’s posh accent to create a memorable bit part that many fans probably still remember fondly.

Alfred Molina Plays The Devil Role in Rick and Morty.

In Season 1, Episode 9 (“Something Wicked This Way Comes”), Molina plays The Devil himself. When Summer (Spencer Grammer) introduces Rick (Justin Roiland) to her boss, a moustachioed man voiced by Alfred Molina who sells cursed items like a microscope that would lower the user’s IQ, Rick immediately recognizes him as the devil. The battle between The Devil’s supernatural powers and Rick’s scientific skills is hilarious. Summer is on the Devil’s side, but Rick opens his own shop where cursed items can be fixed.

In the end, The Devil betrays Summer by kicking her out of his business when it starts making money. Summer and Rick then went to the gym, got really fit, and gave him a good old-fashioned knuckle sandwich. The whole episode is kind of silly, and Molina plays along with the joke like a real pro. Alfred Molina is always a joy to watch, whether he’s scaring New York City as Doc Ock or doing a voiceover for “Rick and Morty” that sounds evil.
