SHH Video: Nicolas Cage and Idris Elba on Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance

Idris Elba

Elba is coming off his recent Golden Globe win for his reprisal of “Luther” in the hit BBC series, and he has two big science fiction movies coming up with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, which he’s currently shooting. We spoke with Elba about playing a character not in the comics, coming up with Moreau’s mannerisms, riding a motorcycle and playing opposite Cage’s “mega-acting.” He also talked about how he’s been drawn to so many big genre films in recent years.

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance opens nationwide on Friday, February 17 in 3D and 2D theaters. You can watch our interview with the film’s directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor here.
