If, in the last post, you looked at Alfred Molina as Mark Rothko and thought he looked familiar, you aren’t going crazy! He is not a newcomer to the art scene, having played Diego Rivera in 2002’s Frida. He plays a  larger-than-life, high-energy, opinionated, womanizer, who also happens to be Mexico’s most prominent artist at the time. In fact, Diego was commissioned to paint a mural in the Rockerfella Building in NYC but was halted before he could complete it due to communistic symbols and anti-democracy images.
