John Cusack: Hollywood Walk of Famer

John Cusack

John Cusack got his Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on the 24th of April, 2012. He is star number 2,469.  This is a super late post so I’ll just try to recall all the things that happened that day through these pictures haha.

Lots of people attended as usual. Always the case with Hollywood A-Listers. John was promoting a new movie called The Raven (where he plays Edgar Allan Poe) during that time and so one of the guests in this star ceremony was a raven. Cool, isn’t it?  It wasn’t billed as a guest speaker though, maybe it was a bit shy. The guest speakers that were announced were his sister, Joan Cusack and his close friend Jack Black. I would’ve attended here even if there are no other famous stars as long as I see John, but what a big bonus it was to see Po from Kung Fu Panda and Jessie from Toy Story!


The media is all set!

I love Jack Black’s look on this one. He actually had that facial expression the whole time. Badass Jack haha.

Joan Cusack was really nice, just looked a bit older in person. I’m sorry Joan! It’s just a bit! Like a few months. Seriously! She’s a really really good actress though!

It’s sometimes nice to have a guest list that doesn’t reveal everything for there’s the element of surprise in it. For this instance, I was lucky to see Billy Bob Thornton! He just appeared out of nowhere!

Maybe his name was actually written on the guest speakers list and I just didn’t see it, but that doesn’t matter. The surprise made a bigger impact.

Dan Aykroyd also appeared out of nowhere! Maybe there were ghosts present and he had to do some ghost busting?

John finally stepped on the stage and gave his speech. I didn’t really get to listen that much. I kept saying to myself, “gosh, this man is so good looking. Why don’t I look like him?”

He was then given the certificate by the City of Los Angeles declaring this day As John Cusack Day in Hollywood.

The Campaign Red Carpet Premiere

Marty Huggins VS Cam Brady

Please vote wisely.

This is one of my favorite premieres. They made the place look like there’s a real campaign going on!


And I got a free T-Shirt!

Vote for Cam Brady T-Shirt

I got the Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) one so… I I know now who to vote for! Go Brady!!! But right away I also get a cardboard cut out of Marty Huggins’ (Zach Galifianakis) face so I’m confused again. This is election is going down the wire!

Arrivals are now starting…

Double checking, nope she’s not naked. Okay moving on…

Randall D. Cunningham is here. Named like a quarterback! Doesn’t look like an NFL prospect though. Hmm. Ah this is the kid that plays Will Ferrell’s son in the movie.

The next one’s very surprising. I never thought I’d see her here, but I ‘m seeing her now! It’s Brooke Shields! It’s so cute that she’s taking a video of the crowd. It’s heart-warming, like we’re getting the feeling we’re special. Or something like that…

Brooke Shields

HIIII Everyone!!!!!

Brooke Shields

Ahh She’s waving at us! I’ll never forget the day Brooke Shields waved at us!

And here’s Thomas Middleditch. He’s a funny one! Before going towards the crowd, he dances around first while toying with his Sharpie, as if telling the crowd…

…”OOOOHHH YEAHHH I got a Sharpie!”

At this point I got free passes to the movie… Woohoo! Am I lucky or what?!

The Campaign Screening Ticket

Well, apparently not. My fat camera isn’t allowed inside. Sometimes it’s easy to sneak it in, sometimes not. Oh well. I’ll keep shooting here, no worries.

Here comes Zach Galifianakis!

Zach Galifianakis

AHHH SO MUCH NOISE!!! The crowd’s getting wild for Mr. Marty Huggins! Seems to me like he’s gonna be the new congressman!

Zach Galifianakis

And his opponent, on the red corner, Mr. Cam Brady… Will Ferrell!
