As you probably know, Joaquin has decided to quit acting to focus on his rapping career.

This is either a fantastic performance or there's something very wrong with him. This is him on Letterman a few years ago and this is him on Letterman a couple of days ago, almost David Blaine-like in coherence.

Whatever it is, that is one awesome beard.

Seeing as it's all being filmed for a documentary, I'm calling: attention whore playing up a "tortured artist" gimmick.

I like this bit where he falls off the stage.

Also, perhaps as I've never seen a film of his, and have only ever seen him in bearded mode, and because I think his name is stupid-pretentious (any relation to River, BTW?), I think he's a total douche.

Ah. I remember seeing that River Phoenix came from screwed up roots, so I suppose that counts for Joaquin, too.

No, he *is* Leaf - he's the one in Parenthood. The names of the Phoenix family were "hippied up" to make them all sound a bit cooler.
