Here's a definite change of pace for John Cusack: He's just joined the cast of 'The Paperboy,' an indie drama in which he will play a death row inmate convicted of killing a local sheriff in Florida.

The film is being directed by Lee Daniels, his first since the award-winning 'Precious,' and stars Zac Efron with Nicole Kidman and Matthew McConaughey in advanced negotiations for key roles, according to Variety.
