Did You Know: Noel Clarke Was Cut From 'Ghost Rider' + Not Sure He'll Be Seen In 'Star Trek 2'

The proverbial cutting room floor, fodder for DVD and Blu-ray extras. I haven't seen Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (released last year) and certainly haven't touched the DVD or Blu-ray to know what special features/extras each contains.

Those of you who have may already be aware of this; in an interview this morning with the BBC, plugging the UK theatrical release of his rom-com The Knot, Noel Clarke revealed that he had a role in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but his scenes were completely gutted from the finished film that many of you saw. 

In fact, he's not even listed in the credits - at least, not on the film's IMDB page of credits. So, you'd never know that he was in the film at all. He doesn't say what his role was, or how significant it may have been; although, given that he was cut out of it, we can surmise that the Brit's on-screen time was probably minimal.

I should note that his fellow Brit thespian, Idris Elba was also in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but, lucky for him, the character he played in the movie, Moreau, made it to through post-production.

Clarke also discussed his secretive role in the upcoming Star Trek sequel, which will be released next year. As you may recall, Clarke's character has still yet to be fully revealed, other than the statement that he'll be playing a family man with a wife and child; and no word on how plump his role as family man will be in the film. 

In today's BBC interview, he didn't seem entirely certain that his character will end up in the movie that opens next May, stating, "as far as I'm aware, I'm still in the movie," adding, when asked to explain, "You go out there and do a big film, and you don't know what they're going to cut..."

And he's right, you don't know. But, if he's role was significant, or integral to the plot, chances are he'd be far more certain of whether he'd end up in the completed film. So it's probably also a *insignificant* part. 

He's a star in his homeland, cranking out projects like an assembly line; but across the pond, here in the USA, he's still unknown to most... unless you're and S&A reader, of course.

But clearly, he's making attempts to change that fact, and it's likely only a matter of time...
