John Cusack comes from a large family of Hollywood veterans, most notably including his big sister, Joan Cusack. The 80’s lover boy of old turned dramatic actor of late has had quite the durable career. Those who barely know his work would consider him type-casted, playing the same character over and over, or simply portraying his own persona on screen. Those who love and appreciate him, however, might consider him to be one of the best actors in the business, bringing life to every role he signs on for. However you feel about him, there’s no denying that he has been a key player in film history, most particularly the 80’s and leading up to the mid-2000s.
Throughout his career, John has organized theater groups promoting political avant-garde themes, and has maintained a surprising dedication to kickboxing, holding a level six black belt under world champion Benny Urquidez over a span of 20 years. He also enjoys a casual helicopter snowboarding session from time to time, along with lifelong antiwar activism that shows up even in his music tastes and film choices. Like him or not, Cusack is cemented in history as a true on-screen talent. So, without any further hesitation, these are the 10 best John Cusack movies ranked from least to best!
