Movie star John Cusack has developed a friendship with former tennis brat John McEnroe because he loves trying to get him riled.

The two Johns have found a mutual love of music, and McEnroe is trying to help Cusack's tennis.

The GROSSE POINT BLANK actor says, "I don't play tennis but I go out there with him. It's like me picking up a basketball and going out there with MICHAEL JORDAN. It's hilarious.

"I try to goad him into losing his temper because it's fun. Mac kind of likes it when he gets angry."
