Joaquin Phoenix says goodbye to Acting!
Joaquin Phoenix at the 2008 AFI Fest writes “Good Bye!” on his knuckles essentially showing how true it is to the rumors that he is leaving the acting scene for music! I for one cant wait to hear what this man will do music wise! Joaquin Phoenix did all of the music on his movie “Walk The Line” about Johnny Cash and if that is any inclination of this mans voice everyone will be very pleased! Question is will he hit the country circuit or something no one expects?
