Joaquin Phoenix returning to David Letterman
When last we saw Joaquin Phoenix, he was a spaced-out, hirsute actor-cum-rapper who seemed dazed and confused on David Letterman's late-night show, saying he and Hollywood were through. Now he's got a movie to promote and is coming back to visit Dave. Oooh, it's so exciting we can barely stand it.
Phoenix's Late Show appearance is probably to shill I'm Still Here, the faux rockumentary he made with pal Casey Affleck. At least, we think it's faux. We hope it's faux. Otherwise Joaquin has just been acting pretty weird. The AP says he'll be on Dave's show Sept. 22, a good seven months after his infamous February stop (watch it above for old time's sake).
I'm Still Here was no big secret even as Phoenix seemed to come unglued, but suspicions were confirmed when trailers started showing up on the Interspheres. It just goes to show, you can't trust someone who lies for a living.
