Nicolas Cage’s stab at the “Ghost Rider” movies was pretty roundly panned by critics and audiences alike, according to Rotten Tomatoes website. But perhaps a “Walking Dead” star’s interest in reprising the role may stoke new interest in a reboot.

In a Wednesday interview with Uproxx.com, Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Nixon in the AMC zombie series, left no doubt he’d be interested in playing Johnny Blaze, a motorcycle stuntman who sold his soul to the devil. 

“Hell yeah,” Mr. Reedus told Uproxxx. “It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that’s on fire and all that stuff? F—k yeah. I’m down.”

Mr. Reedus made the comments while promoting his new AMC travel series “Ride with Norman Reedus,” which debuts Sunday, June 12. The network describes the show as “tak[ing] viewers on a ride on the open road to explore local biker culture and its history and celebrate some of the best and brightest collectors, mechanics and motorcycle craftsmen around the country.”

The actor and motorcycle enthusiast waxed philosophical about the common bond bikers have despite hailing from diverse backgrounds.

“People think that someone who rides a motorcycle is a bad boy or a bad girl, but there are a lot of different cultures with different types of bikes,” Reedus told Uproxx. “You have dirt bikers, café racer styles, Harleys, sport bikes – they’re all kind of connected in a way and it’s not just one type of person riding a motorcycle. You’ve got lawyers and dentists, people who are into the aesthetic of it, or Harley riders who are into the freedom. It’s all kind of different and yet they’re all sort of connected.”
