John Cusack 'Say Anything' flashback

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

For those of a certain age, the most romantic scene ever filmed had John Cusack's Lloyd Dobler serenading Ione Skye's Diane Court with a boombox. In the driveway. Underneath her window. With '80s teen slow-dance anthem "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.

Who needs Shakespeare?

During Peter Gabriel's 25th anniversary tour stop Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl, John Cusack stepped out on stage with a throwback boombox and handed to Gabriel.

The singer lifted it above his head before launching into the iconic song. The film's director, Cameron Crowe, was in the audience and later tweeted "Peter Gabriel and John Cusack on stage together at the Hollywood Bowl tonight. Won't forget that... ever."
