Creator: John Cusack

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

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

He has appeared in such films as Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, and 1408. He was also in Con Air, although given his refusal to discuss it in interviews, he apparently wishes he wasn't.


Filmography


John Cusack's roles provide examples of the following tropes:


  • Author Appeal: Cusack is a big fan of The Clash, and often sports a Clash t-shirt, especially in his earlier films.
  • Production Posse: Cusack has appeared in 11 films each with his sister Joan and Jeremy Piven (not all the same films), plus 9 with Tim Robbins and 4 with Jack Black. (To date, no one film has featured all five of them.)
  • What Could Have Been: He was approached by AMC to take the role of Walter White, the protagonist of Breaking Bad, but declined, leaving the role to Bryan Cranston.
