Johnny Whitworth Discusses His Role As Blackout In GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE
Johnny Whitworth spoke with MTV about his character in Spirit of Vengeance, which is hitting theatres this Friday. Whitworth touched on Blackout's personality, saying that "he's a sociopath with some anger management issues" and more.
Johnny Whitworth says that Blackout is a "sociopath with some anger management issues":
"He's a sociopath with some anger management issues, and a few homicidal tendencies. But that's due to the job," Whitworth deadpanned. "He encounters the Ghost Rider, and it's unfairly matched [because he's] supernatural. So he gets a little bit of help from the Devil and becomes Blackout. It all comes to fruition, and he's just a badass. A psychopath who can eliminate you with a touch: turn you to art, so to speak!"
Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures' and Hyde Park Entertainment's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. In the successor to the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Johnny still struggling with his curse as the devil's bounty hunter is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciarn Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy and possibly rid himself of his curse forever.
The cast includes Nicolas Cage, Idris Elba, Christopher Lambert, Johnny Whitworth, Violante Placido and Ciarán Hinds. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will be hitting theatres on February 17, 2012!
