John Cusack is a Time Traveler. Or he has made a deal with the Devil. Quick, look for a painting in his attic!

I was browsing the video rental store and saw a shot of one of my favorite actors, John Cusack. He starred in a movie recently called War, Inc. : An Incendiary Political Cartoon about....well, check out the trailer for yourself.

Here's a clip of John last year talking about War, Inc. and the war in Iraq. I admire his activism. I also admire his cuteness. Squee! Did I just say that out loud?

John has not aged. At least, not appreciably. So I am guessing he time travels. My kind of guy.

If you would like to read an outstanding analysis of his film career, check out Egghead23's wonderful post from which I stole the picture at the top of this post - please don't be mad, Egghead23!
And for a fabulous look at Cusack's acknowledgement as Hot Old Man for February and all good things movie-related from the perspective of a very fun blogger named Caitlin, go to this post at 1416 And Counting.

Update: Suspicions confirmed. His latest film is currently in production. It is called Hot Tub Time Travel Machine. I am NOT making this up.

So I have two questions designed to generate some comments so please comment so I don't feel like I'm just talking to myself!:
1. Do you have any favorite actors who have apparently not aged?
2. With whom would you most wish to time travel - or at least hot tub?

I'd like to hot tub with Daniel Craig, Robbie Williams, Gerard Butler, Christian Bale, Clive Owen and basically any Irish, Scot or Brit. For some reason no American actor really does it for me.

John Cusack is on my short list. YUM. The short list also includes Bono and Johnny Depp.

I love John Cusack as well - I chose my daughter's birthday based on his. That's not weird, I'm sure.

I can't think of anyone (now that you've asked) who hasn't seemed to age, but I can think of many Potential Second Husbands I would gladly travel through time and/or hot tub with: Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Jude Law. Bad boys what?

Rachel - this heretofore unrevealed sluttish side of you slightly alarming: "you would like to hot tub with "basically any Irish, Scot or Brit"? Excuse me? Um, Benny Hill? Keith Richards? Bill Bailey? Anyway, it's okay that you're excluding Americans from your hot tub. More for me!

Shana and Stephanie - as usual, you two lend a classy tone to this blog. Thanks for your thoughtful comments about John's political activism. Oh,'re just slobbering over more men who I want too. What is this? I try to engage in a deep discussion, and all I get is women who are almost as shallow as me. How the heck can I better myself?!

Now on the subject of whether to have tub jets on or not, my vote is off. Bubbles obscure the view. Your perspective?

John Cusack: love him. He is charming and intelligent in all of his roles -- including the schlocky ones.

If I had known a Lloyd Dobler in high school I'm sure that I would have enjoyed it more.
