I have a love/hate thing for John Cusack. I love a few of his movies, but I find his political bombast tedious and pretentious. It's as if he's perennially spooling out the do-nothing anti-capitalist of Say Anything. *yawn*
Anyhoo, I came across this clip Friday. The tape is rolling and first thing you know, he's crammed in a couple of rack-checks before she blows the whole thing to hell with off-the-mark pre-interview banter. If you've seen any of his films, you've seen him go into that condescending mode, too-cool-for-the-room. He leans way back, levels an unkind gaze her way and rubs his nose. Is that a mafia gang sign or something? Next thing you know, that rack lost all credibility. I giggled.
Um, he doesn't even look like Kevin Spacey.
