In a recent TV interview Cusack talked about his political satire, War. Inc., which he described as having an "activist element to it."
Cusack also talked about his recent MoveOn.org ad, and, when confronted with a clip of O'Reilly talking smack, took the high road by saying that there's no need to respond to O'Reilly's slam because "(Keith) Olbermann beats (O'Reilly's) head in everyday." Read Alternet's recent interview with John Cusack for more about War Inc., which is in select theaters now.
