Joaquin Phoenix Was Acting the Whole Time

Remember about a year and a half ago and Joaquin Phoenix appeared on David Letterman with a scruffy beard and was acting all bizarre. It was shortly after he made the announcement that he was "retiring from acting" and had decided to pursue a career as a hip-hop or rap musician.

As it turns out, it was all faked. It was just one big stunt.

I told you. Joaquin Phoenix was acting the whole time.

I'm not sure why Phoenix wanted to do the gig. His announcement came just two years after his Academy Award-nominated performance in Walk the Line. As for Casey Affleck, he's trying to prove himself more as a filmmaker and the more talented of the Affleck brothers, so I can see why he was interested in the stunt.

So, there you have it.
