"I'm his big sister. You better be nice to him," Joan Cusack told SheKnows from her Four Seasons suite in New York City.
The pair has appeared in numerous films together. John and Joan have teamed again for the summer movie "War, Inc.," arriving in theaters May 23. Her brother's handprints are all over the political satire.
"War, Inc." also stars Hillary Duff, Sir Ben Kingsley and Marissa Tomei in a tale of a Middle Eastern brewing conflict that is far more complicated than anything the nation's headlines could generate. Therein lies its power.
In the '80s John Hughes arrived in Chicago ready to make a trilogy of teen classics, and discovered the thespian team of Joan and John Cusack. Casting them in "Sixteen Candles," the director launched a career for both.
Since then, Joan has appeared in a slew of favorites, from "Working Girl," "Toy Story" to "Friends with Money." Her Filmography has allowed her to share scenes with some of Hollywood's great talents. "Broadcast News" found her opposite Holly Hunter and ducking file drawers. "Married to the Mob" brought Michelle Pfeiffer and "Say Anything," an iconic cinematic moment for her and brother John.
With "War, Inc." the Cusack siblings are enlightening while entertaining. The biting comedy, in the vein of the such greats as "M*A*S*H" and "Wag the Dog," sent Joan to a movie set in Bulgaria with a pop culture superstar, Hilary Duff. The pair hit it off and celebrated their mutual admiration society.
Haylie Duff told SheKnows that, "Hllary and I love Joan Cusack. Hilary called me all the time from Bulgaria," Haylie said from the Vancouver set of her latest film. "We love Joan. Hilary and I were so excited that she worked with her."
