Illinois native, John Cusack is 50-years-old today.
We saw him grow up on the big screen in the 80s. First he was a nerdy, hormone-crazed teenager in ‘Sixteen Candles’ in 1984.
Then he got a girlfriend and was the leading actor in 1985’s ‘Better Off Dead.’ But eventually he made his way into sports though ‘Eight Men Out,’ as part of the infamous 1919 Chicago Black Sox.
And how could we not mention the heart-melting boombox serenade from ‘Say Anything’ that still lives on in pop culture today.
But he has really grown up now. Staring more recently in films like ‘Hot Tub Time Machine,’ ‘The Raven,’ and ‘Chi-raq.’
Happy Birthday John!
