Joaquin Phoenix’s Unusual Apperance On Letterman Is A YouTube Hit

Posted Feb 16, 2009

Joaquin Phoenix, a famous actor whose most notable role was as Johnny Cash from the movie Walk The Line.  Recently David Letterman had Joaquin appear on his show.  Joaquin showed up with sunglasses on and a giant beard.  Joaquin then proceeded to talk about how he wants to get into making an album and rapping.  The audience was loving it.

Joaquin mumbled quite a bit to himself and kept questioning whether Letterman’s witty remarks were necessary.  Letterman’s witty remarks were provoked by Joaquin’s lack of response when being asked about questions regarding his new movie.  The whole ordeal was quite awkward, but the YouTube audience loved it.

Within 36 hours of the below clip being added to YouTube, it received over 2.5 million views.
