John Cusack Marks Edgar Allan Poe’s Birthday with a Shot from the Set of THE RAVEN

     January 19, 2011


John Cusack has tweeted a photo from the set of James McTeigue’s upcoming thriller The Raven.  In the film, Cusack plays famous author Edgar Allan Poe.  Poe must team with a detective (Luke Evans) after the author’s fiancée (Alice Eve) has been kidnapped by a serial killer who is using Poe’s work as inspiration for a murder spree.  Today is Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday so Cusack tweeted an image of Poe’s (presumably) favorite things: chairs bearing his name and bottles of Fiji water.  Had Poe not died at the relatively young age of 40 in 1849, he would still be dead as people don’t live to the age of 202.
