John Cusack Channels Lloyd Dobler, Holds Boombox at Peter Gabriel Concert
Here’s something for all you painfully nostalgic types out there. It’s video footage of John Cusack awkwardly shuffling onstage with a boombox and handing it to Peter Gabriel before he performed “In Your Eyes” in concert over the weekend.
No, he wasn’t wearing a trench coat. He didn’t hold the boombox up in the air, or talk about how kickboxing is the sport of the future. But 23 years ago Cusack played Lloyd Dobler, and that means something … to people who like ‘Say Anything’ and/or old-school sound equipment.
