Johnny-Whitworth-Ghost-Rider-2-Spirit-of-Vengeance-interview-slice

With Neveldine/Taylor’s Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance opening tomorrow, last weekend I interviewed a lot of the cast in New York City.  In the sequel, Johnny Blaze (Cage) is hiding out in Eastern Europe when a motor-cycle riding warrior monk (Idris Elba) recruits him to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the Devil (Ciaran Hinds). The film also stars Violante Placido, Anthony Head, Christopher Lambert and Johnny Whitworth. For more on Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeace, here’s my Romania set visit, on set interviews, new images, five movie clips, and 12 minutes of behind the scenes footage from when the production was filming in Europe.

During my interview with Whitworth we talked about working for Neveldine/Taylor and playing blackout, which part he enjoyed filming the most, karaoke, do more people want to talk to him about Party of Five, Empire Records or Can’t Hardly Wait, his favorite movie, actor and director, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my interview with Nicolas Cage or Idris Elba, click the links.
