Actor Johnny Whitworth was recently doing press for his new movie Limitless, where he revealed that he is playing Blackout in the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. We reported back in October that Johnny Whitworth signed on for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, although we didn't know he would play Blackout. Here's what he had to say about the character.
"I play the villain who, at the beginning, up until like page 70, I am, for all intents and purposes, human. I'm not a very nice guy. I'm bad. I get turned into, for those who read Ghost Rider, the character Blackout. I get turned into him by the devil to complete my job. That gives me the fortitude to fight Ghost Rider and the supernatural ability to compete, on some level, with that guy."
He also talked about shooting in Romania and Turkey for four months on the high-powered sequel.
"It was fantastic. We went to places that were so outstanding and beautiful, in both countries. You would more than likely not plan your vacation to go there, because you wouldn't know about it, not because you wouldn't want to be there. I feel very blessed to have gone on this journey and, if it makes any sense to you, I feel like a better human being from having done it. I learned a lot about myself, a lot about the world, and a lot about making action movies."
