Teasing Phoenix’s return to Letterman

Posted by · 4:48 pm · September 22nd, 2010

Now that the cat’s out of the bag on “I’m Still Here,” all eyes are on The Late Show tonight where Joaquin Phoenix parks it on David Letterman’s chair one more time. Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, here’s a rather, well, nothing teaser clip of tonight’s appearance, which would have wrapped filming I guess about five ours ago:

Once the entire appearance is available I’ll try to track down an embed and post it up.

    I thought Letterman was in on it. Is he just asking those “What happened” questions for the audiences sake who didnt know it was fake?

    My theory on this whole comeback / documentary / hoax is that Phoenix really *ACTUALLY* abused substances, went nuts and made a fool of himself on Letterman.

    Then he got help from his close ones (including Affleck) who came up with a very clever way to JUSTIFY his behavior as an elaborate acting performance… this whole movie was made as a PR move to deny that Phoenix was actually who he was that night.

    No actor in their right mind would piss on their entire career for an experimental film fest docudrama that nobody’s going to see. Think of how many millions of people out there heard of what happened on Letterman but will never hear of this film.

    This truly is nothing but a giant spin. It reminds me of a drunk Paula Abdul making the rounds at morning shows and later being on Leno giving this BS story about how she couldn’t hear the sound in her ear piece.

    BOTTOM LINE: Phoenix got better, he’s out of rehab, and they found a rather clever (but insulting) way to make sure we erase his behavior from our collective subconscious.
