John Cusack Is Not Taking A 2nd Dip In ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’

Hot Tub Time MachineI don’t know if it’s good news or bad news that John Cusack isn’t returning for HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 but I am putting it down to the man has woken up to the Nicolas Cage career trajectory that he has been on and is taking steps to fix it. Ok that’s a bit of a swipe I guess but seriously the last 5 flicks he’s been in (The Numbers Station, The Factory, The Paperboy, The Raven, Shanghai) are painfully under par for a man of such talent… Here’s to hoping he nails it in THE BUTLER.

Anywho, news from THE WRAP has ADAM SCOTT (Piranha, Parks & Recreation) stepping into the lead role of the sequel as a completely new character. He’ll be joined by returning cast members Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke.
