John Cusack Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame—in Time for a Say Anything Sequel?
Though it’s John Cusack’s upcoming thriller The Raven that’s got him out and about doing publicity, lots of questions have been coming his way about the possibility of him, sigh, playing boombox-wielding romantic hero Lloyd Dobler again.
Cusack has said that he’s game, but, as he told E! News yesterday, there’s one condition that has to be in place.
“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,” he joked to Jason Kennedy, “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.”
Not play Lloyd?! Is he kidding? Things must have gone well for him once the fasten-your-seatbelt sign turned off. Kickboxing turned out to be huge!
But the order of business for Cusack today was receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his film accomplishments.
Sister and sometime-costar Joan Cusack joined the party, as did Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black and director-producer Joe Roth.
“To the best of my knowledge, I’ve tried to screw my career up as much as I possibly could,” Cusack told the assembled crowd. “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.”
