10 years ago, the thought of a straight-to-dvd franchise would have probably gotten you laughed out of any meeting in Hollywood. Today, modest theatrical hits such as Wrong Turn, The Scorpion King, and even The Lost Boys have been given new life. The 2008 action-thriller Death Race is another one of these success stories, spawning Death Race 2 in 2011 and the upcoming Death Race 3: Inferno, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD January 22. I recently had the chance to speak with Luke Goss, who returns as Carl "Luke" Lucas (aka Frankenstein), reprising his role from Death Race 2. Take a look at what he had to say about taking another deadly ride as Luke.
This is your second time around as Carl Lucas. Are you continually exploring new aspects of the character each time around? »
