Ghost Rider director Mark Steven Johnson explains why Nicolas Cage is the perfect actor to take on the dual roles of Johnny Blaze and Ghost Rider.
To save his dying father's life, young motorcycle stuntman Johnny Blaze signs a deal with the demon Mephistopheles. Deceived by the demon, Blaze's father meets an unfortunate demise in spite of the pact. Now Johnny Blaze is the Ghost Rider, a fiery spirit of vengeance bound to do Mephistopheles' bidding. When the son of the evil fiend, Blackheart, makes a play for power, Mephistopheles commands the Ghost Rider to put an end to his son's madness.
