This Song: John Cusack

By: Elizabeth McQueen

John Cusack comes to Austin’s Bass Concert Hall on June 15th for a screening of High Fidelity followed by a live Q&A moderated by KUTX host Susan Castle! Before the trip to Austin, we caught up with the actor and screenwriter to talk with him about the process of adapting Nick Hornby’s novel into a screenplay and the importance of music and music cues in the film. Also, he tells us how listening to The Clash’s “Armagideon Time” as a teenager opened him up both politically and musically and how he knew which songs to put in the movie.
