John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe with Sneakers

Here’s the first look of John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in the movie The Raven, being directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin). In the photo, you can see that John Cusack has a mustache and goatee, while the real Edgar Allan Poe that we know only sported a mustache as you can see below. It’s like giving Abraham Lincoln a mustache.

The fictional story follows Edgar Allan Poe in his final days as he tries to find a serial killer whose murders mirrors those in his stories. It seems like Hollywood likes to take our historical figures/characters and turn them into some kind of an action star; for example, Robert Downey Jr’s Sherlock Holmes.
