John Cusack’s career has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. Once the adorable Eighties heartthrob of classics like Say Anything… and Better off Dead, he eventually grow up and segued into a mix of big-budget crowd-pleasers of a questionable quality (2012) and indie passion projects that have become cult classics (High Fidelity, Grosse Pointe Blank). Throughout all, his talent cannot be questioned; he’s a witty and naturalistic actor, oftentimes the best part of tripe, like…well, 2012. His height and brooding looks make him quite the sex symbol for the thinking girl. What better role for such an actor than in James McTeigue's The Raven as  Edgar Allan Poe, an author renowned for his dark moods as much as his genius?
