Actor John Cusack was honored with the 2,469th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today.

Not surprisingly, the ceremony was timed to take place just three days before the release of his film "The Raven." The site of Cusack's star is in front of the Larry Edmunds Bookshop on Hollywood Boulevard, also meant to evoke the literary nature of the movie in which the actor plays scribe Edgar Allan Poe.

Of course, to many of us, Cusack is eternally Lloyd Dobler, a character who might just make a big screen comeback, as the HuffPo explained this week:

Speaking on "The View" last week, John Cusack discussed a possible return to the kickboxing ways of Lloyd Dobler, and allowed that he would do a sequel to the seminal film as long as director Cameron Crowe "wanted to do it." Of course, that's the difficult part. As Cusack added: "I don't know if there were ever any plans to do it."

Cusack's thirty year career includes many other highlights, though: "High Fidelity," "Being John Malkovich," "The Grifters," "Grosse Pointe Blank," and "Eight Men Out," to name a few.

Today's ceremony was attended by Cusack's actress sister Joan, actor Jack Black, and producer/director Joe Roth.
