SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Actor John Cusack is scheduled to appear at Salt Lake Comic Con, organizers announced Friday.
Cusack first gained the attention of audiences by starring in a number of 1980s film classics such as The Sure Thing, Say Anything and Sixteen Candles. Following these roles, Cusack successfully shed his teen-heartthrob image by demonstrating his ability to expand his film repertoire by starring in a wide range of dramas, thrillers and comedies including The Grifters, Eight Men Out, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank.
More recently, Cusack starred in the Spike Lee directed drama, Chi-Raq, alongside Teyonah Parris, Nick Cannon and Samuel L. Jackson.
In 2012, Cusack appeared in Lee Daniels’ drama, The Paperboy, opposite Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron, and Matthew McConaughey as Hillary Van Wetter, an inmate on death row. Cusack also starred in the independent thriller The Raven, where he portrayed the infamous author, Edgar Allen Poe. Read more about Cusack and his work here.
