John Cusack turns 47: Here are his top 47 movies

28

June

June 28 always sneaks up on me. It's John Cusack's birthday, a holiday for all '80s fans as we honor the patron saint of our decade ... even if it's a time Cusack himself would prefer to ignore.

These days, Cusack is practically going from role to role. He has 10 films listed in IMDB.com as either completed (but not released), filming, in pre or post production. The one I'm most interested in? Cusack as President Richard Nixon in The Butler. That's due out Aug. 16. In it, he'll appear for the first time with another '80s icon, Forest Whitaker.

A few years ago, on Cusack's 42nd birthday, I ranked his top 42 films. Well, Johnny's been busy since then, so I'll add five more movies to the ranking and republish it here today.
