“The closest thing we have to the Shakespearian clown: odd, edgy, inexpressibly funny, wry, charming… Actors with his kind of charisma, whom the camera loves, really who can’t do much wrong, are rare.” The Guardian (U.K.)
“Cusack has more than earned his chops as Hollywood’s go-to intelligent outsider.” Slate.com
Like most of the characters he’s played over the last two decades, John Cusack is an unconventional hero. As the offbeat and grippingly watchable star of films from Say Anything and High Fidelity to Being John Malkovich, The Grifters and Con Air, he is one of the most respected and versatile Hollywood actors of his generation, garnering critical acclaim for dramatic and comedic roles alike. For his latest role in The Raven, a gothic thriller, he brings to life Edgar Allan Poe, the legendary American author of the macabre. The Chicago-born actor, screenwriter and producer will be featured in conversation with respected film critic and historian Leonard Maltin, longtime contributor to Entertainment Tonight.
