In addition to playing a crossbow-wielding badass on "The Walking Dead," Norman Reedus will soon have another show on AMC -- one that focuses on his love of motorcycles. The non-fiction series "Ride with Norman Reedus" documents the actor's love of motorcycles. In an interview with Uproxx, the site took the opportunity to ask Reedus about Ghost Rider, a superhero known for riding motorcycles that the "Walking Dead" actor seems tailor-made to play.
"Hell yeah," said Reedus when asked if he'd ever be up for playing Ghost Rider in a Marvel Studios project. He added that he liked the previous two Nicolas Cage "Ghost Rider" films. "It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that's on fire and all that stuff? Fuck yeah. I'm down."
Nicolas Cage previously played Ghost Rider in 2007's "Ghost Rider" and 2012's "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." Those films were produced by Columbia Pictures, not Marvel Studios, and the character's film rights reverted back to Marvel in 2013. There's been much speculation about how Ghost Rider could fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that his rights are with the studio; both Daredevil and Punisher ended up in Marvel-made Netflix series after their rights reverted back. While there's no firm Marvel plans for Ghost Rider just yet, it looks like Reedus would be ready to board the flaming motorcycle.
"Ride with Norman Reedus" debuts on AMC on June 12 at 10 PM ET.
