FRIENDS WITH MONEY

JOAN CUSACK portrays Franny, the richest one in her group of friends. She's extremely wealthy and comfortable with her affluence, yet aware it causes stress among her various relationships.

The Chicago-born Cusack still resides in her home town where she lives with her husband and two children. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in the comedy hit "In and Out” in which she played the frustrated fiancee of gay acting coach Kevin Kline.

Sister to actor John Cusack, Joan began her career at the Piven Workshop in Chicago and was initially seen to good advantage in several films shot there including "My Bodyguard” "Class,” and "16 Candles.” Her comic timing has earned her a legion of fans among the Hollywood creative forces and with the public. In 1985/1986 she joined the cast of the NBC nighttime show "Saturday Night Live,” and in 2001 she starred in her own ABC-TV sitcom "What About Joan” which was shot entirely in her home town.

Cusack's other screen credits include Jonathan Demme's "Married To The Mob,” Cameron Crowe's "Say Anything,” Mike Nichols' "Working Girl” (her first supporting actress nomination in 1988), James Brooks' "Broadcast News,” "Men Don't Leave,” "My Blue Heaven,” Barry Levinson's "Toys,” "Nine Months,” "Grosse Pointe Blank,” "Arlington Road,” "The Cradle Will Rock,” "High Fidelity,” "School of Rock,” "Raising Helen” and "Ice Princess” among others. She recently provided one of the voices for the Disney hit "Chicken Little.”
