Joaquin Phoenix embarking on new rap career



Remember when Joaquin Phoenix told Extra he was retiring from acting to start a musical career? And Casey Affleck was there to confirm the whole thing? Yeah, well, all that was strange, and now the Hollywood Reporter says Casey is directing a documentary on the whole experience. Coincidence? We think not.

But not only that, THR says Phoenix is, and we quote: "embarking on a new path as a rapper, with an album to be produced by Sean Combs." Wait, what? Seriously?

Affleck was shooting an appearance at a Las Vegas club this weekend, but TMZ currently has video of an apaprently drunken and disheveled Joaquin slurring his way through some beats on a microphone (watch that here, if you dare). This is like some bizarro Spinal Tap business right here.
