Quick, Let's Make Love Before You Die: Cusack, Spader or on the CuSp?

They're a few years apart, but John Cusack and James Spader came through the film ranks together, flitting in and around the same circles, and the Brat Pack crowd. Spader did Pretty in Pink; Cusack, Sixteen Candles; Cusack did "Frasier," Spader, "Seinfeld," and in between, they came together for True Colors. Talk to anyone about her 80s crush and one or the other's name is sure to come up. They share a certain onscreen intensity and intelligence, and neither is afraid to step outside the box. So which way do you tend--Cusackive or Spaderesque? Sadly, middle age seems to be taking them to the same place...


Walk with me and make your choice.
