Nicolas Cage Talks GHOST RIDER SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE, Karaoke, His Favorite Director, Actor and Movie, and a Lot More

     February 12, 2012


With Neveldine/Taylor’s Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance opening next weekend, the other day 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 Cage we talked about playing both Johnny Blaze and Ghost Rider (in the first film Ghost Rider was played by a stunt man), working with Neveldine/Taylor and what they brought to the film, a great sequence where he’s almost transforming and the way his performance is amplified by CG, karaoke, his favorite movie, actor and director, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
