Joaquin Phoenix Joins The Rap Game

If you didn’t see Joaquin Phoenix’s classic performance last night on Letterman you are really missing out.  It was a drug-induced meltdown for the ages… It reminded me of a video I saw a while back: Top 5 Drug Fueled Interviews from Cracked.com (Crispin Glover’s [Back To The Future] was on Letterman too). You seriously might cry watching Richard Pryor….

This is only the latest in a bizarre behavior spree for Phoenix. Joaquin has said he is retiring from acting to pursue a hip hop career.  From what I can make out from a recent rap & fall in Las Vegas, it’s going to be a short one IF he’s serious.  You can’t be as strung out as lil wayne with out the years of experience… no, you just can’t be as strung out as lil wayne–period.

But I belong to the camp that thinks Joaquin’s recent antics are just part of a mockumentary he is making with Casey Affleck.  They say the best place to hide is in plain site.  So why not make a Borat-style film using your own celebrity as the character?
