It’s A John Cusack Kind Of Day
Can anyone here honestly tell me that they haven’t had a crush on John Cusack? My obsession with him started back when he played one of the geeks in “Sixteen Candles,” reached a fever pitch when he held the boombox overhead in “Say Anything,” and was reignited a decade ago when he played the overly-analytical, relationship-challenged record store owner in “High Fidelity.” He’s been off the radar for a while, but luckily the Cus is back—with his face looking oddly just as young as it did back in the ’80s. His newest role as a limo driving trying to save his family in the movie “2012” probably won’t earn outright swoons—let’s face it, it’s a disaster thriller in which the world is ending because it’s being sucked into a parallel dimension (seriously)—but hey, at least John’s back in the public eye. Last night, he walked the red carpet for the premiere of the movie in Los Angeles. Coincidentally, it also happened to be the 20th anniversary of “Say Anything,” so across the country in New York, a flash mob formed with dozens of dudes, complete with the iconic trenchcoat and boom box. See more of their antics, after the jump.
