John Cusack is the latest celebrity to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 45-year-old Say Anything actor, who stars in the upcoming thriller The Raven (in theatres Friday), was humble about his career and grateful to his friends and supporters.
"To the best of my knowledge, I've tried to screw my career up as much as I possibly could," Cusack said at yesterday’s unveiling ceremony. "But even with all my best efforts to screw it up, I managed to have lasting friendships, and some of the best friends I've ever met in the business."
Cusack’s star is the 2,469th plaque to grace the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cusack’s sister, Joan, joined the actor at yesterday’s unveiling ceremony, as did Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black, and producer/director Joe Roth.
Considering all of the unlikely sequels that have popped up in Hollywood lately, is it possible John Cusack will star in a Say Anything 2?
“I think I would have to play a truck driver or something. I don't think it would work for me to play the same guy," Cusack told E! News. “But we could only do it if me and (Say Anything director Cameron Crowe) did it together. If he wants to do it, I would do it."
With a career spanning nearly 30 years, Cusack has starred in over 50 films, including Sixteen Candles, Say Anything, Grosse Point Blank, Con Air, The Thin Red Line, Being John Malkovich, and High Fidelity, a film that earned the actor a Golden Globe nomination.
John plays Edgar Allen Poe is the upcoming film The Raven. The film, directed by James McTeigue, also stars Alice Eve and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
