Indie hero John Cusack would love to make an action movie - if he could find one with a good enough script.

The BEING JOHN MALKOVICH star, best known for turns in quirky classics like High Fidelity and GROSSE POINT BLANK, is a self-confessed martial arts freak, who practices kickboxing at least four times a week.

And he'd consider using his fitness skills on screen - if he could find a worthwhile vehicle.

He says, "The problem is, I like doing action stuff but on most action movies the scripts are bad. It'll be fun to do physical stuff but I can't find a good movie. If I found one I liked, I'd do it in a second."
