Happy birthday, John Cusack: Top 10 Cusack blog items



lane-meyer-3.jpgJohn Cusack is no stranger to Stuck in the '80s. In the nearly 5 years of this blog's existence, I go back to Mr. Cusack over and over again. He easily appears more often than John Hughes, Molly Ringwald and Michael Jackson combined.

So for today, Cusack's 44th birthday, instead of trying to find some new nugget of information to hang a tribute item on, let's go back in time and pick out 10 great blog items already written about the great John Cusack.


10.  TOP 5 GIRLFRIENDS OF THE '80s: It's not a Cusack movie without a memorable girlfriend. But you'll be surprised which one tops the list. [Read it]

9. ON THE ACTOR'S STUDIO: Behold John's answers to Bernard Pivot's great 10-question quiz as administered by James Lipton. [Read it]

2. RANKING HIS MOVIES TOP TO BOTTOM: On Cusack's 42nd birthday, I ranked his top 42 movies. I'm pretty sure the Top 5 would remain the same today. [Read it]
