Joaquin Phoenix walks the line in real life pretty much as he did in the Johnny Cash biopic and this is what makes him one of the greatest method actors of today. He maybe went a little too far while he was making his epic mockumentary together with Ben Affleck’s brother Casey simply titled “I’m still here”.
This dynamic duo managed to prank the whole world and even tricked David Letterman into believing how Joaquin is quitting his acting career and focusing on a new passion. Recording a rap album.
The other good thing, besides the enormous publicity the movie managed to tract, is this ridiculous scruffy beard:
Nobody knew “I’m still here” was a mockumentary and the best part is that Joaquin is calling some hookers in this particular scene.
It’s an incredible look for Joaquin and I personally can’t wait to see his next two movies scheduled to run in 2018. The first one is the historically themed “Mary Magdalene” where the actor plays the role of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Yep, I’m kidding you not.
The man that shot a mockumentary about a fake rapping career for two years is now playing the role of Jesus, but at least he got a tidier beard look, which will also be a part of his character in “You were never really here”, the second movie we’re expecting from Joaquin in 2018.
The scruffy bearded Joaquin Phoenix is the one I want to see as he appears scarier and gives a whole new level of enigma to the plot.
The look on its own is great for our bearded brothers that work from home and have an introvert’s soul.
