The Magical Internet Pony has let us down. Well, not really, but it has stung us a little. The MTV Movie Awards nominations were announced a few days ago, and Catching Fire got a bunch of them. Best movie, Best Female Performance (Jen, duh), Best Male Performance (Josh), Best Fight (Jen/Josh/Sam vs. the monkey mutts), Best Shirtless Scene (Go Sam! No need to be self-conscious), Best On Screen Transformation (Elizabeth Banks), and Best Villain (Donald Sutherland). Very impressive. And a nice job of spreading out of the love to several actors.
However, Catching Fire was not included in two categories that had fans crying foul. Best Hero and Best Kiss. I agree that there is a tremendous case for CF to be nominated in these two categories as well, but I’d guess that it was left out as a way to include other movies in the show. You nominate more movies, you have a better shot of having more actors come, more movie fans are inclined to watch and you make more movie studios happy. If Catching Fire and Jennifer Lawrence won everything, it might be a bit too much for some people. Not me, but I could see it annoying other people.
Looking at some of the nominees in those two categories irritates me though. Channing Tatum, you are adorable and lovely and quite the strong buff guy. But MTV, are you seriously telling me that his role in White House Down deserves a Best Hero nod over Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire? No. The only reason he’s nominated is they want to include him in the broadcast for a reason other than just promoting 22 Jump Street. The other noms are Marvel/DC superheroes and Bilbo Baggins. Fine, I can understand you picking superheroes and another beloved literary figure. But you leave out Katniss Freaking Everdeen when Catching Fire was the number one domestic release of 2013 MTV? Tsk, tsk. That is one big miss, and it kind of stinks of sexism, which makes it even more uncomfortable.
For what it’s worth, some fans have channeled their outrage into online petitions. The Best Hero one already has over 11,000 signatures and I even saw E! News posting on it today. I mean, I don’t know what would possibly come of it, but it makes me smile to see fans support Katniss. It’s nice.
[I don’t even want to dwell the Best Kiss category because we all know it’s a travesty that the beach kiss was not included. Completely ridiculous oversight made for some of the reasons mentioned above. It makes me angry. And then I get angry at myself for being mad about a silly MTV awards show. It’s a cycle of just bad feelings so I must stop.]
Yes, I’m very annoyed at myself for even writing this post because really, the true value of the MTV Movie Awards for Hunger Games fans is that last year it gave us the Catching Fire teaser trailer premiere. And maybe this year, it will give us something else (purely rumor at this stage). I can’t say I enjoy watching the rest of the show. So why am I wasting my life writing about this. Damn you, MTV and your Movie Brawls, Movie Awards, etc. Just. Ugh.
After all this MTV, I hope for your sake that Lionsgate is hooking you up with something Mockingjay-related to make us forget.
It’s okay, people. It’s okay.
There’s a lot of us bumming out because Jennifer Lawrence didn’t win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in American Hustle. The award went to Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years A Slave, who gave a really wonderful, stirring acceptance speech. Shortly after, Twitter broke. The world had THAT many Oscar feels just then.
While we’re a bit bummed, Lupita also gave a stunning performance and either way, it’s not the end of the world. In case you’re hopes are so squashed that you’re forgetting that, here’s why:
1) No one’s career is over.
Nothing is ever decided by an Oscar win. As much as everyone wants to win, it won’t ruin careers. Hell, there are some great movies and performances that don’t even get nominated. Despite not winning, she got herself a huge recognition. She’s got plenty of roles lined up. She’ll still get all sorts of movie offers after this. So why are people worried again?
2) Jennifer Lawrence is still Jenny from the… stables?
She grew up with horses, right? We’re not just making the up? ANYWAY, losing out this year won’t make her less perky or less lovable. It certainly won’t make any any less talented! And she’s still Katniss. Freaking. Everdeen. We just can’t see a thing like this sucking the life out of her. Girl knows a thing or two about real life priorities, from what we’ve seen.
3) Other movies.
East of Eden, anyone? How about rumors of another with David O. Russell (who comes off as somewhat creepily obsessed with her, but WHATEV)? Those will probably get some love from the awards world. And frankly, we don’t need all her films to be Oscar nominated. We will see them anyway.
4) We still got to see Jen looking fab on the red carpet.
Damn, that girl can rock a dress AND a hairstyle that’s questionable on most people!
So rock the good vibes, Jen! You’ve earned ‘em, girl! Don’t mind any downers, we’re just busy living vicariously through movie stars.
The Girl With The Pearl
This is going to come as a shock to pretty much every single Hunger Games fan on the planet, but I do not want Jennifer Lawrence to win at the Oscars tomorrow night. Yeah, throw tomatoes, or bags of dog poo at me (I’d prefer tomatoes, thank you), but I think I have a good reason for not wanting her to win, or perhaps more than one reason.
Reason number one: I don’t want any more Jennifer Lawrence hate flooding the Internets at large. See, in our sick, twisted, stupid, and fucked up society, we tend to really, really, really, really like to kick people when they’re at a high point. Example: Remember when everyone loved Anne Hathaway, or at least liked her acting, and mostly tolerated her perkiness, and her eager to
please attitude? Yeah, well– have you seen much of Anne Hathaway lately? I’ll answer that question for you. NOPE! She’s been working, true– but she’s had one of the lowest public profiles since her breakthrough role in 2001. And do you know why she’s been so low-key lately? Welp, because the media, and the Internets started becoming an all out hate mongering death trap for her. Jen’s different though, talent wise she’s on par with Hathaway, because come on– even if you don’t like Hathaway you cannot deny that the woman is talented at her craft. However, where Jen and her differ greatly is their all out public persona. Jen’s kind of no-nonsense, quirky, and unapologetic for her inability to conform. Hathaway, um– yeah, she’s kind of a bit of a conformist, a bit faux, and kinda sorta a priss. Seriously, I don’t think we’ll ever see Hathaway making the faces that Jen does, which is okay– Jen’s doin’ her thang, and I will never not enjoy her weird. But Anne, even after all the praise, and the awards, and the hard work she put in, she got a hate storm of epic proportions thrown at her after she won, and was nominated for everything under the sun, and she got that storm thrown at her because she was doing well, and people got tired of her doing well. I do not want that to happen to Jen, therefore even though I do think that her performance in American Hustle was commendable, in full disclosure mode– I
don’t think it’s her year.
Which brings me to my second reason: Lupita Nyong’o– her performance in 12 Years a Slave is earth shatteringly good, actually everyone’s performance in 12 Years a Slave is more than good, all the way down to Garret Dillahunt, and one of my personal favorite character actors, Paul Dano. You know how there are films that just deserve to be recognized because they go places that have never been gone to before? For example Philadelphia, or Midnight Cowboy, 12 Years a Slave is like those films and the performances are above board, and without qualms, or mercy, or affectedness– American Hustle, and Jennifer Lawrence– I can’t with a clear conscience say that either has those same facets in my opinion.
May the best woman win!
Them There Eyes
According to a recent article in some random tabloid that claims to be business related, Jennifer Lawrence is totally ungrateful for her Best Supporting Actress nominations this awards season.
Why? Because she been working instead of sitting around obsessing over them. No, really! Here’s what Jen told Deadline:
“I didn’t remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one so I put it out of my mind. So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!’ And I said, ‘Oh, go f*ck yourself!’ And then it turned out they were serious.”
This combined with a quote in which she said she was glad to be away from the pressure of awards season, according to International Business Times, is a surefire sign that she is totally ungrateful for her awards and nominations.
To which we say… WHAT FUCKERY IS THIS? Have you ever been invited to an event that you know you can’t attend, then you get busy about things and forget about it? Hell, we get busy and forget about events we plan to attend! So why is it a shock that as she bounces back and forth between two movies, Jennifer Lawrence might have lost track of the date of the BAFTAs?
We have to laugh, because as much as David O. Russell wants to make snarky comments about the Mockingjay films enslaving Jen, she was on the X-Men set when she missed this event. But otherwise, it’s just RIDIC. The alternative is Jen obsessively forcing someone else to constantly update her on the BAFTAs as she’s supposed to be focused on her current job, running around set like “I’m nominated for an award! People are busy talking about me and I couldn’t be there! Wah!” Thankfully, Jen is not like that, which is why we don’t feel the desire to punch her in the face.
And let’s face it, folks: As much as WE love the glitz and glamour, we get to enjoy it from our homes in our snuggies. Yes, I have a snuggie. It has the Hogwarts house crests on it. STOP JUDGING ME.
We get why Jen feels relieved because she missed out on some of the pressure of awards seasons. For stars, it goes a little something like this:
1) Be pressured by your team of a bazillion people to look better than you’ve ever looked before, which is not an easy task. Meetings, dieting, fittings, and lots of stressing.
2) Go on the red carpet with said great look, have many critics and fans tear it apart.
3) Get interviewed about everything under the sun, including things you probably don’t want to share with the world. Get judged by millions based on the few sentences you say.
4) Worry for several hours about the chances of winning, your facial expressions, tripping, any presenting duties, and the chances you’ll have to stand up on front of an outrageously sized audience and spill your guts.
5) Get interviewed again about previous winning or losing. Get judged some more based on reaction.
Yes, it’s fun for us. Stars do get perks like wearing beautiful gowns, holding shiny statues, and getting some extra time in the spotlight that may open up the opportunity for new roles. But they’ve also got a salivating audience just waiting for them to reveal their flaws and embarrass themselves. As a star, you have to be a strange combination of perfectionist and attention whore to enjoy the awards season without any qualms. Hence why the ones who are always like “OMG I LIVE FOR THIS!” are usually the ones who seem to live in an alternate dimension of entitlement.
Look, not every word an actress says will ever be perfect, but let’s not go looking for excuses to tear it apart. Jennifer Lawrence has been astoundingly down-to-Earth about the awards season and other media endeavors meant to swell up an actor’s ago til it’s nice and obese, ignoring the hype and focusing on actually acting. And frankly, if that’s being “ungrateful,” we wish more stars were ungrateful.
We’ll Can That Universe Entitlementia! Lots Of Pretty People Hang There.
The Girl With The Pearl
Every now and again, we like to pretend we’re super fashionable. It’s not a real thing (at least for this gal), but it’s good to pretend. And with Jennifer Lawrence hitting the Academy Awards red carpet this weekend, that part of our brain thinks “What is she going to wear?!”
In case you missed it, Jen will be wearing Dior on the red carpet this year. Probably next year too. Why? Because Dior is paying her roughly a gajillion dollars to be their representative and wear only their stuff. To which we say “GET IT, GURL.” Though it’s a shame they decided to make her look like a 12-year-old boy in the most recent round of ads, because the typical Photoshop abuse wasn’t bad enough.
ANYWAY… The Dior connection helps us narrow down her potential look!
Unfortunately, we weren’t exactly thrilled with what Dior has shown the world this year. The Spring Couture collection involved puffy fits and eyelets, making the collection look like a mesh basket had a baby with a shower curtain. Though not all of it is awful, it’s not our favorite. Observe one of the better pieces from the bunch:
Different? Sure! Red carpet? Uhhhh… no thanks.
There’s also the “ready to wear” Spring/Summer collection, which is too informal for The Academy, but there’s room for inspiration in there. In this line, there’s lots of bunchy fabrics, funky designs, and cutouts. To the not so fashionable or au couture inclined (aka ME!), these styles are a little more bearable. Yet they’re borderline tacky and seem more likely to be worn by a prom date than an actress up for a prestigious honor:
Thankfully, we’re likely to see Jen in a CUSTOM number. Dior wouldn’t do that for every event (as evidenced by Jen wearing several designs that have been seen on the runway in the past), but we’re talking about the freaking Oscars. It could be a completely different look from these two most recent collections, but we’re imagining an intermingling.
Jen’s been very muted and plain– style-wise!– this awards season, so it would be nice to see her in some color. Something that makes her look like she’s in her 20s and not her 60s, because stuff that ages up young stars too much will forever drive us crazy. Jennifer Lawrence is not plain and shouldn’t dress that way, either!
We can’t all have a stellar fashion streak like Lupita Nyong’o did this year, but Jen’s looked fabulous and has the potential to wear something kickass. Just go for form fitting. And avoid the cheesecloth look. And be perfect. IS THAT SO HARD, DIOR?!
Living Vicariously Through Total Strangers Since FOREVER,
The Girl With The Pearl
Last weekend it snowed. Again. So I took that as an excuse to binge all of Season 1 of House of Cards and some of Season 2. It was disturbingly easy to do. One of the fun things about watching House of Cards was that it was my first chance to see Mockingjay’s Boggs, Mahershala Ali, in action. He plays Remy Danton, a DC lobbyist and former press secretary to Kevin Spacey’s frighteningly powerful “moves and countermoves” politician. The role of Remy Danton in no way reminds me of Boggs, but the political gamesmanship brings to mind some aspects of Mockingjay.
Even though Remy is a very different character in a vastly different world, I couldn’t help getting pulled out of the story every now and then and thinking, “HEY, IT’S BOGGS. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HIM AS BOGGS!” This is not a negative reflection on the performance in any way. I just seem to have this problem a lot when actors in the series work on other projects.
It happened to me recently when watching Woody Harrelson’s character in True Detective have scenes of an adult nature with an actress from the Percy Jackson series. And then someone pointed out to me that the actress resembles Katniss and it got even more uncomfortable (though the added discomfort works in the show’s favor in that case. It’s all pretty messed up). Also, when watching Jennifer Lawrence’s Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook recount how she was having problems with her husband because she wasn’t ready for kids, I just think “Oh, Katniss, I’m sorry. For everything.”
It’s not that these actors don’t do a great job at inhabiting other characters. They do, and I still enjoy the performances and the movies/tv shows on their own. But it does bring to mind why some actors balk at taking roles in big movies or get annoyed when a movie is a surprise hit and their role becomes iconic. You get fans like me who love it so much that it’s always going to linger in their consciousness. Because when I wonder how many years/decades I’m going to associate the Hunger Games actors with their roles so strongly, House of Cards also gives some insight into that question. When I saw Robin Wright my first gut reaction was “BUTTERCUP, YES!” (Robin Wright is seriously so awesome in this show).
Looking forward to thinking “WOW, PEETA IS SURFING” during Paradise Lost.
Harvey Weinstein wants to distance himself from the über violence he’s been producing, and Schilling for the last decade plus. As a Hunger Games themed blog I have to put my two cents in about this, because while Harvey has been producing, and promoting some of the most violent, and the most highly praised films of the last several years– he’s also totes BFFs with Jennifer Lawrence, AKA our Katniss Everdeen the Heroin of one of the most violently themed series’ to come out in eons.
Weinstein did not produce nor does he have a hand in any of the future Hunger Games films, but since he’s pretty much the Dogs Tuxedo in Hollywoodland, and has spent time braiding Jen’s hair, and talking about boys over pizza, and in their jammies– I’d say his new stance may have after effects on the way Mockingjay is received. Or, okay… probably not at all. The way I see it is this, The Hunger Games series, either in book form, or film form in comparison to the extremely violent fare that’s been pummeled on our heads for the last few years, it’s um– kind of tame. Okay, the films so far are anyway, but the books, especially Mockingjay are full on bang, bang, shoot ‘em up, blow ‘em up– good damn times. For instance pretty much everything that takes place outside of District 13, minus Peeta losing it and showing his brand new shiny shiny colors, is non-violent where it comes to the confrontational kind– i.e in your face. But then there’s basically a free for all where it comes to vomit inducing violence, so vomit inducing in fact that Katniss herself can’t hold in her cookies and throws up all over her bodyguard, who later in the story gets his legs blown off in a blaze of bloody glory— outside of District 13.
I’m frankly a bit confused by Weinstein’s brand new stance, especially since he’s made his bread and butter, and more butter off of some of the most violent films to date. Including Django Unchained and Inglorious Bastards, which you don’t even have to open your eyes to see the violence, the sound affects alone tell you some pretty horrible shit is going down. Which brings me back to Mockingjay, there’s not a lot that they’re going to be able to get away with where it comes to violence, especially since it will absolutely be rated PG-13 here in the USA. I even know for a fact that with Catching Fire some of the more extensively violent scenes, i.e. the Bloodbath in the arena were shot, but ended up being cut either to appease the ratings boards, or for time. Here’s the question though– do we want the films to be as violent as they could be, do we want them to be Django level gruesome– are we desensitized enough like the Capitol citizens we’re repeatedly told we’re on the way to becoming, to take in Jena Malone being water boarded, or seeing a man in his prime getting his legs blown off, or seeing Sam Claflin ripped to shreds by a pack of genetically engineered monsters?
I have no bloody clue, but Weinstein’s new POV isn’t going to change much for me.
Them There Eyes
Fast forward to November 2014 and all those Mockingjay Part 1 premieres. What will our leading lady Jennifer Lawrence be wearing? Well if you believe Page Six, it will continue to be Dior. And then some more Dior a year later for Mockingjay Part 2. While not confirmed by Jennifer Lawrence’s reps or Dior, Page Six claims that an additional 3-year deal with Dior (worth $15-$20 MILLION) is imminent. Since becoming a spokeswoman for the brand in 2012, we’ve gotten used to seeing her wear Dior for all her many red carpet events. So much so that it’s become a game to predict which of the Dior looks she’ll be wearing, and some of you out there are getting really good.
I am by no means a “fashion person,” but in my unscientific poll of Jennifer Lawrence fans, the feelings about Dior are pretty negative. The 2014 Golden Globes dress became an internet meme of bedsheets and black belts. The dresses for the various Catching Fire premieres had very mixed reviews. Before this year’s SAG red carpet, Twitter and Tumblr was full of comments of people dreading the Dior dress that she would be “forced” to wear. And yeah, I was one of them. (And sighed with relief at the SAG dress. Miracles can happen, guys).
In the interest of fairness, I will now put on my devil’s advocate hat and try to explain why she would look to extend this relationship. 1) Did I mention $15 to $20 million dollars? I don’t care if you’re also making bank as a movie star, you don’t just sniff away that kind of cash lightly. You think it over seriously. 2) Even if people have been unhappy with the dress selections, Dior is an upscale fashion brand. In terms of endorsements, a high-end fashion brand is a good choice. It’s worlds better than, say, those drugstore fragrance deals that so many celebrities have (PLEASE, NO, NEVER). 3) Ease of dress selection and those pesky red carpet interview questions. If she’s always going to wear Dior, that winnows down the potentially overwhelming options a lot, and makes it a lot easier to answer Guiliana Rancic’s inevitable “what are you wearing” question without flubs. And finally 4) Maybe she actually likes the looks? You never know, we all have different taste in fashion. Ok, this is where the devil’s advocate thing starts to break down.
With that out of the way, why is the prospect of an extended deal with Dior breaking my heart? Because as a fan, I want her to look beautiful and fabulous and have the options that the whole world of the design community offers to her. No doubt if she was a free agent fashion-wise, she’d have almost first pick of any dress at any big event. And also, variety. Isn’t variety nice and liberating? Or at least liberating in the sense of not having to pull up your strapless gown throughout the night? And maybe if Dior didn’t have an exclusive to all your red carpet fab-ness, they would work harder to get the right look for YOU.
But I know. $15-$20 million dollars is damn tempting. I can’t say I would turn it down either.
News flash: Josh Hutcherson now exists in bobblehead form!
Yep. The Cincinnati Cyclones, a minor league NHL affiliate team, held Josh Hutcherson bobblehead night on the January 17th. Josh even came to the event to celebrate! The bobblehead itself doesn’t look much like him, other than THE JAW and an impressive head of hair (and does the figure have a 5 o’clock shadow?!), but dammit.. IT WORKS. More than most Catching Fire merch, even! Because there is always a market for ridiculously kitsch merchandise!
In that spirit, let’s think up some other ways to memorialize our favorite stars in not really collectible merchandise that could only be found in minor league sports arenas!
Jennifer Lawrence Thunder Sticks – Seemingly innocent things that cheer up a lackluster crowd but can sometimes be a bit disarming? Totally J-Law!
Liam Hemsworth Foam Boogie Boards – Liam is a surfer, but real surfboards are expensive! Instead let’s slap his face on a little foam boogie board and let fans brave the waves with those!
Woody Harrelson Hemp Bracelets – Because once you’ve posed on the cover of hemp magazine, we’ve got to spread the good word in your honor!
Sam Claflin Frisbees - Seeing as he’s always working to stay “Finnick fit”, fans see Sam as the athletic type. There’s no real athletics in the stands of a sports game, but how about Sam’s face on a frisbee? Because eventually you’ll see it as a call to exercise. Right? …Right?!
Elizabeth Banks T-Shirts - Straight from the t-shirt cannon! Each includes a zany cartoon rendering of Elizabeth looking totally sweet while saying something slightly inappropriate.
Jena Malone ViewMaster Toy - Jena is a photography enthusiast but again, we’re on a budget! So let’s mass produce 90s childrens toys with slides of her photos! Not weird at all! *cough*
We know you’re disappointed that you can’t actually get these things at the next sporting event you attend. But at this rate… who knows? Maybe you can soon enough!
Bobbleheads Look Classy By Comparison,
The Girl With The Pearl
I should be writing about how Jennifer Lawrence has lost at the two most recent awards shows she’s attended, and how awful that is, and “poor Jen!”– but I’m not going to, because sometimes it’s not all about Jennifer Lawrence. Yes, even though it’s pretty much been scientifically proven that she is in fact awesome. Nope, today I’m going to wax philosophic over how much I am in hard like with IMDb, and all the amazing little nuggets of information it gives forth when I am quite honestly strapped for article ideas, ’cause there are only so many pieces that can be written about how awesome Jen is. Which she is, we’ve covered that, Jeez!
Today I was perusing my crush object, AKA IMDb.com, reading through The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′s full cast and crew list, because sometimes as proven in the past, there are nuggets of hidden information hiding in those lines of tiny, text. Like that time I found that Ripper had been cast and was for real in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, you’ll remember her, she was the woman Katniss helped during the raid aftermath at The Hob. However, this time around I spent an exorbitant amount of time looking at the technical and behind the scenes listings, searching out costumers names, and stunt people’s past and current projects, and then I found the name Francie Brown, and the annotation, “dialect coach: Mr. Cusack”. Now, I only know of one Mr. Cusack in the film business, I’m sure there are others, but most likely those Mr. Cusacks don’t require the employ of a dialect coach. So, if you’re on the same page as me, and I don’t mean webpage, I mean thought process, this particular Mr. Cusack is none other than John Cusack of Say Anything, Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, Serendipity (don’t lie, you saw it too!), High Fidelity, Anastasia, and about a million other known and semi known films– fame. I think I might be a little bit psychic, guys. Or, I don’t know what the hell is going on, but sometimes I have casting ideas that either do come true in full, or only in part. For instance I picked out Julianne Moore for Coin over 6 months before she was cast, I also secretly thought of Sam Claflin for Finnick a year before he was cast, I also thought that Stanley Tucci would have been a great President Snow way before he was cast in the role of Caesar Flickerman. Kind of glad he got Flickerman, actually.
Which brings me to Cusack being a rumored cast member, because I of course scrolled up on the page and saw that he was listed– but the pesky “rumored” annotation was there. Face it, if they’re hiring out a dialect coach for him though, and the said dialect coach is listed in the credits– I’m pretty damn sure he’s not a rumored cast member, but that he is one. And before anyone points out to me that anyone with an IMDb-pro account, can alter an IMDb page’s listings, the information that is more often than not altered, added, and retracted, is usually done by day-players trying to pad their resumes, not reputable dialect coaches who have been the coach to Christian Bale multiple times on multiple projects (like, all the Batman movies!)– she’s the real deal naysayers of the world. Almost a year ago in February I wrote this, an article fan-casting John and Joan Cusack in the roles of Boggs and Coin. Yep, so that didn’t happen, the casting of those specific actors in those specific roles that is, but John Cusack has magically shown up in the cast list for one of the Mockingjay films– and I’m just going to take that as a sign from the giant unicorn I worship, that something amazing is going on down at the casting offices for this film franchise.
Cusack is a boon– people, not quite as starry-eyed-amazing-and-shiny-fantastic as getting Hoffman, and Moore, but he comes with clout, and chops, and intelligence, and years, and years, and years of experience. There’s no information on what role he’s allegedly taken on, but judging from the whole dialect coach thing, I’m going to make an educated stab in the dark here, and say he’s playing someone from the Capitol– the only place in Panem with any discernible accent. However, if I had my way he’d be playing Doctor Aurelius, but unfortunately Aurelius is from District 13– an area of Panem that according to canon, has no noticeable accent. Cusack is a Name however, meaning his reputation precedes him, therefore I’ll posit that the role he’s allegedly taken is not a one liner– and that he’s going to pleasantly surprise us.
Let us wait and see! Until then, please check out The Paperboy– it’s one of those films that Cusack did that’s little known, but was seriously, seriously amazing in, Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman, and Zac Efron are in it as well. It’s a veritable feast for the senses, no lie.
