->''"I was a teen star. That's disgusting enough."''

John Paul Cusack (June 28, 1966-) is an American actor and the brother of actress Creator/JoanCusack. He started off as a teen idol in TheEighties before he progressed into playing quirky offbeat characters in various films, including broader comedy roles.

He has appeared in such films as ''Film/GrossePointeBlank'', ''Film/BeingJohnMalkovich'', and ''Film/FourteenOhEight''. He was also in ''Film/ConAir'', although given his [[OldShame refusal to discuss it in interviews]], he apparently wishes he wasn't.
