Happy 45th Birthday, John Cusack! What's His Finest Onscreen Moment?
On this day back in 1966, a baby boy named John Cusack was born in Evanston, Ill. Within two decades, Cusack had moved to Hollywood and was building the foundation for his long-lasting career on a series of '80s films like Better Off Dead, One Crazy Summer and Say Anything. Three decades later, Cusack remains one of our most beloved actors, capable of charming audiences as a lovelorn audiophile, a depressed puppeteer, a neurotic hitman, and a variety of onscreen personas in between. In celebration of the actor's 45th birthday, why don't you dust off your copy of Hey Soul Classics and join us below to decide which of Cusack's cinematic moments is his best.
So many good moments to pick from, ranging from his breakthrough role in Cameron Crowe's Say Anything (below) to last year's Hot Tub Time Machine. OK, no one is allowed to choose a moment from Hot Tub Time Machine or Must Love Dogs because we have standards at Movieline and we'd like to believe that you do too. But any scene from Eight Men Out, Grifters, Bullets Over Broadway, Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity (also below), and the rest of Cusack's filmography is fair game.
Celebrate the day by sharing your favorite Cusack scene below.
