John Cusack cast in 'The Paperboy'

From Jeff Sneider at Variety:
John Cusack is set to co-star in Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy," an indie drama that marks the helmer's follow-up to "Precious."

Ensemble pic stars Zac Efron, while Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey are also in advanced negotiations for key roles.

Cusack replaces Tobey Maguire... [He] will play the condemned prisoner.

That helps clear up that Tobey was cast as Hillary Van Wetter. Though I'm a little wut? at Matt reportedly still being in advanced negotiations at this point. But who knows?
