Somber and reticent Joaquin Pheonix on Letterman was like some ice water down my pants. It was like there was no way he was going to play the same old tired game, the same old tired dog and pony show.
But why did he even show up? I know that feeling, that bearded feeling of aloofness and uncooperativeness. But at the same time, I felt that there was an interaction that he would have engagedwith but this was not it. He was not going to continue the superficial B.S. This reminded me of old Andy Kaufman appearances on the show.
What say you?
