TV Guide caught up with Peter Fonda, who plays Mephistopheles in writer/director Mark Steven Johnson’s Ghost Rider opposite Nicolas Cage. He talked about the film and here’s a clip:
TVGuide.com: Did you go back and look at the comic to inform how you should play the Mephisto character?
Fonda: I had read a few of them before, but I thought regardless of what the guy who wrote the comics had designed here, it was up to me to put it on the screen. As it was, they let me play totally against part. Let me tell you, nobody has played the Devil quite like I do. Oh, man, I loved it. It was really cool.
