Lloyd Dobler may not have been interested in selling anything, buying anything, or processing anything as a career, but the guy who played him wants you to buy a ticket to revisit Dobler for a screening of 1989 rom-com classic, Say Anything.

Yep, that’s right, John Cusack is coming to Tampa’s Straz Center for the Performing Arts where he’ll screen the cult classic and then have a moderated conversation about the making of the film.

Tickets to see the 52-year-old actor go on sale Friday, March 29 at 12 p.m. EDT and will cost $53.50-$73.50. A release says that a limited number of VIP Gold Circle seats that include a post-show meet-and-greet and photo op are available for $153.75.
