Cusack was honored on Tuesday with the 2,469th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The star is located in front of Larry Edmunds Bookshop in honor of his latest role as the infamous author Edgar Allen Poe in “The Raven.” Cusack took a moment to reflect on his career.
“We used to go to see double features of all the great filmmakers from the 50s and 60s and 70s and the European filmmakers,” said Cusack. “That's sort of where I fell in love with cinema. I looked up and I thought those guys telling these stories are pretty awesome and what they are telling has meaning and it was speaking to me and I got to see all of these sort of legends that I got, that I learned from and I listened to all their stories and so to come up and see my name next to Gene Autry is very surreal. I keep thinking about that Kinks song of Hollywood Blvd, actually.”
Speaking at the ceremony were Jack Black, Joan Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton and Dan Aykroyd.
Black who starred in “High Fidelity,” with John Cusack had a few words to say.
“Most actors don't give a crap about other people in the movie,” Black stated. “They are looking out for number one, it's a cut throat every man for himself kind of biz. That's why I thank my lucky stars I got to work with such an incredible artist and a class act of a menchy good stuff potato of a man. Johnny Cusacko, I love you bro hammer!”
Cusack will also be seen in Lee Daniel's “The Paperboy,” and later this year will star opposite Nicolas Cage in, “Frozen Ground.”
