John Cusack strikes on John McCain

An advertisement launched by is airing on television and showing Jon Cusack giving a pop quiz regarding the extreme similarities between George Bush and Sen. John McCain.

"I know my opinion doesn't matter more than anyone else's and I just make films," he told The Associated Press in a phone interview Wednesday. "But I do feel you have to speak out, and that's what I'm doing."

Cusack says he supports Democrat Barack Obama.
