See Nic Cage’s Ghost Rider face paint and light rig!


Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was a guilty pleasure of mine this year, so this is some awesome stuff for me. This is a reel of deleted scenes from the film, and while a lot of them are on the uninteresting side, check out the scene starting at the 1:39 mark, which features a CGI-less Nicolas Cage as Ghost Rider in full voodoo face paint and a wacky-looking light right to simulate his head’s hellfire lighting.

I gotta say, seeing Old Nicky C in that makeup and with the black contacts, especially when reading about how his antics messed with people on the set, is pretty cool. You have to hand it to the man; when he commits to a role he really goes for it.
