John Cusack gets a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, drinks Purell with Jimmy Kimmel

John Cusack received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Tuesday, with an assist from a raven named Suge.

Yes, it’s Hollywood so the ceremony — which costs $30,000 — was also used to promote the actor’s new Edgar Allan Poe thriller, “The Raven,” which hits theaters this week.

Cusack, who was joined by Jack Black, Dan Aykroyd and Billy Bob Thorton, accepted the honor with some self deprecating remarks.

“To the best of my knowledge, I’ve tried to screw my career up as much as I possibly could,” he said (via Reuters.) “But even with all my best efforts to screw it up, I managed to have lasting friendships, and some of the best friends I’ve ever met in the business.”

His sister Joan Cusack said there’s “magic” in her brother: “I think he himself is part ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ part ‘Dr. Strangelove’ and part ‘Charlie Brown’s Christmas.’”

Tuesday night, Cusack appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” where he celebrated receiving his star by taking a shot of Purell. (Apparently, six teens in California drank the hand sanitizer in an attempt to get drunk. Kids these days!)

Watch part of that interview, and see images from his Walk of Fame ceremony, below.
