“You know that old cliché from cartoons where the gray cloud follows around a character, persistingly raining down on them?

In movies, that character is John Cusack.

You may not notice from a single viewing of classic Cusack material like ’Say Anything’or ‘High Fidelity.’ But watch enough JC films like us, and the trend becomes disturbingly apparent. We will say this, though. Cusack wears water better than any man out there — no matter how frustrated he always seems to be in it.”—John Cusack in the Rain (mashed by Avaryll Halley)

Love John Cusack—but this vid is for mabes, hehe…

Satire is a great way to cut through. I think sometimes truth is so disturbed that if you don’t look at it through an absurdist lens, you’d never get out of bed. And I think also it’s a way of getting at the idea that it’s all inevitable. That murder is a legitimate economic policy, for example. We believe that’s just the way it is and there’s nothing that can be done about it. It’s just like the weather. There’s nothing we can do about it. We treat the war like the weather and the weather like the war.

John  Cusack on his movie War Inc. Name another actor who can reference Moliere, Sesame Street, The Shock Doctrine, the American war policy on Iraq, and Frigidaire in one interview and not sound like he’s showing off. You can’t, coz he’s the only one. That’s why I still love him despite the fact that he’s now fat and plays daddy roles. Wish they show this movie here…
