When you say the name John Cusack what’s the first image that comes to mind? Obviously, the one in which he is standing outside the window of his girlfriend’s house with a boombox over his head blaring “In Your Eyes”. John was a hot commodity in those days. But his hits Say Anything and High Fidelity are long gone and in recent years his movies have gone straight to DVD or VOD.
Love and Mercy
Even the 2014 film Love & Mercy, the Brian Wilson biopic which garnered Oscar buzz for co-star Elizabeth Banks, didn’t really do much for John’s career. But the actor doesn’t let that get him down as he has outside interests. He’s quoted as saying, “I’m a pretty good kickboxer; I’m a pretty good writer; there are things I could fall back on. And you know how it is–the minute you realize that your options are unlimited, things just start falling into place all around you.”
