I am a fan of Cusack. I fall in love with the man over and over each time he puts out a film.

I'm hoping this is the case when THE RAVEN comes out. Sure, he'll be great, it's Cusack. In the beginning it was rumored that Joaquin Phoenix would fill the shoes of the writer with Jeremy Renner as police inspector Fields. Ewan McGregor's name was also once brought up as a possible Poe. Well, all of those actors eventually dropped the film then Cusack won the lead with Luke Evans as Fields.

The first official still of Cusack as Poe has surfaced online. He also posted a pic on twitter of himself in costume looking like my drunk uncle. On the 1st, he said this about one of the scenes, "did a scene last night where the poe we are dreaming is thrown out of a bar and stomped by a sailor... while being kicked in the gutter."

Extra Tidbit: Michael Sheen dressed up as Poe for Halloween this year. Not to show anyone up...

Looks great. I get a very "Sherlock Holmes" vibe from looking at the photos, which is a very good thing. Cusack is going to knock it out of the park.

The thing about Poe...

...is that he had a horribly shaped head/hairline that no other being living or dead could ever duplicate. That being said, I feel like this is the best we could ever hope for.

I love Cusack and am looking forward to this. I was hoping Hot Tub Time Machine would be his big return but that didn't quite pan out so hopefully this will be the one to bring him back.

I'm really looking forward to this but I can't help but feel that Cusack is an odd, if not poor, choice for Poe. I like Cusack and Poe but I'm hesitant on Cusack as Poe. I love that Sheen picture. Wow. That's a Poe. Still, this movie sounds fun. I really hope it comes together well.
