John Cusack has been inducted onto the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame, joining dozens of the finest actors, actresses, film personalities and entertainment industry stars of all time to have their name inaugurated on the famous sidewalk. The Press Association reports that Cusack was joined at the ceremony by his actress sister Joan Cusack, 'High Fidelity' co-star Jack Black, 'Pushing Tin's' Billy Bob Thornton and Dan Ackroyd, who co-starred in 'Grosse Point Blank.'
Clearly delighted at his achievement, Cusack told those in attendance "I love working with actors, I love being around them, they're such great spirits. To the best of my knowledge, I've tried to screw my career up as much as I possibly could, but even with all my best efforts to screw it up, I managed to have lasting friendships, and some of the best friends I've ever met in the business."
A popular man in the film industry, Cusack was praised by his sister Joan, who said "There's magic in him. Who knows where it came from? Passion for what he does. I think he himself is part It's A Wonderful Life, part Dr Strangelove and part Charlie Brown's Christmas." As well as the three aforementioned films, Cusack's has also appeared in films such as 'Con Air' and 'Being John Malkovich' among scores of others in a career that's lasted the best part of three decades. His next big role is in the film 'The Raven,' in which he plays out the fictionalized last days of the writer Edgar Allan Poe.
